MOTs at Alpha Cars

Vehicles in England are subject to an annual MOT test, which checks that a vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards.

We provide a trustworthy and reliable service for our customers, offering MOT tests for Class 4 (Cars) and Class 7 (Vans) vehicles. Using highly experienced testers and equipment, you can be sure your vehicle is in good hands.

Our current cost for a full annual MOT test is £45.00. We are happy to provide guidance on any advisories given on an MOT pass, and if your vehicle fails an MOT test, we will contact you to advise on the repairs required.

Contact us on 01748 831700 for more information on availability.

Further information on MOT testing can be found at www.gov.uk

Servicing

Having your car regularly serviced can extend the life of your vehicle and ensure its safety and roadworthiness.

The small cost of having your car routinely serviced with us and putting it through a thorough inspection programme will far outweigh the cost of leaving defects to become major issues. Regular servicing will:

  • Reduce the cost of repairs over the life of the vehicle
  • Reduce unforeseen breakdown risks
  • Reduce possible time of the vehicle being of the road
  • Minimise inconvenience and unforeseen expense
  • Increase fuel economy
  • Increase the lifespan of a vehicle

Take advantage of our free local collection and delivery service, and complimentary bubble wash while we have your vehicle with us for a service.
