What if my car fails its MOT test?

Regular servicing at an Approved Servicing centre such as ourselves will make sure your car is always at its best. For minor defects or major faults discovered during your MOT test, we’ll always advise you at the earliest opportunity. We never carry out unauthorised work, even after an MOT. We’ll prepare a no-obligation quote for repair or replacement of damaged parts so you’ll know exactly how much it will cost.
