BMS car services tackle all types of MOT work and repairs. We outsource MOTs at trade rates meaning you pay below the industry standard for your MOT test fee. We keep a large quantity of parts in stock to help insure we can get your vehicle through the MOT and back on the road as quickly as possible.
Checking MOT Status
As the proof of MOT status is now held on a secure database we recommend that you use the new internet or telephone services to obtain and validate the information whenever you need to do so, for example, before you buy a second hand car. It is possible to check through all of the old MOT information on line.
Checking the MOT status of a vehicle is quick and easy, simply visit the MOT website www.motinfo.gov.uk or call 0870 330 0444
To check the status you will need the registration mark of the vehicle and either the document reference number from the V5C registration certificate or the test number from the new style MOT test certificate.
The MOT Test
The MOT test checks that your vehicle complies with the minimum standards required for lawful use on the road.
The MOT test is not a substitute for proper and regular servicing. Passing the MOT test does not mean that your vehicle will remain safe for the following 12 months. All vehicles need proper and regular servicing irrespective of the MOT test.
Further information about the MOT test can be found in the following leaflets available at MOT garages. "Your car and the MOT test" for cars and light vans, and for motorcycles "Your motorbike and the MOT test".
More detailed information can also be found on the VOSA website.
