conflict of interest and unnecessary extra costs by seperating tests
Why choose an independent MOT test centre to check your car?
Different from garages an independent MOT test centre will only check
the required points without doing any repairs. This will prevent or
at least minimize a possible conflict of interest and unnecessary extra
costs because there is no vested interest in failing your car. In many
cases the impartial and unbiased MOT check can be done while you wait.
It only takes about 45 minutes. Some stations don't even require an
appointment. Re-testing (if necessary) is often free within a certain
time limit but can vary from station to station. This website lists
all independent MOT centres including those of local councils. Click
