Are you looking for MOT for your vehicle?

MOT stands for Ministry Of Transport. The MOT test is an annual vehicle inspection required by law for every vehicle over three years old.

An MOT is a must to ensure that your vehicle meets all safety and environmental standards.

Are you looking for an MOT Ilford?

You can end your search with us. Golden Garage and Tyres are here to provide an easy process for every vehicle-related need.

During the test, our certified technicians will check various aspects of the vehicle, including brakes, lights, tyres, emission to name only a few.

Our experienced examiners will ensure all tested components are in good working condition. If your vehicle passes the MOT test, we will issue a VT20 certificate. If dangerous or major faults are found, you will receive a VT30 (fail) certificate which highlights the area(s) that need special attention and repairs.

After all faults have been rectified, a partial re-test must be carried out. Only then a VT20 certificate can be issued.

Important! A vehicle without a valid MOT must not be driven or parked on public roads. Insurance policies are also invalid.

What is checked during an MOT Ilford:

These comprehensive checks are designed to ensure your vehicle is safe, roadworthy, and environmentally responsible, making the roads safer for everyone.

  • Vehicle Identification: This involves verifying the unique Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to ensure it matches the official records, preventing fraud or stolen vehicles from passing the test.
  • Lights and Signalling Equipment: The various lights on your vehicle, such as headlights, taillights, indicators, brake lights, fog lights, and reflectors, are thoroughly examined to ensure they work correctly. This ensures that you can see and be seen on the road.
  • Steering and Suspension: The MOT test checks the steering system and suspension components' condition to ensure they are in good working order. This is crucial for maintaining control and stability while driving.
  • Brakes: The braking system is assessed to ensure it's in proper condition. Effective brakes are essential for safe stopping, so any issues must be addressed.
  • Tyres and Wheels: Tyres are inspected for wear and must meet the legal minimum tread depth (1.6 mm) to provide sufficient grip. Wheels are checked for damage to maintain safe handling.
  • Seatbelts: The condition of seatbelts is examined for damage, wear, and secure fastening.
  • Exhaust and Emissions: The exhaust system is checked for leaks and excessive noise, and emissions are tested to ensure they meet environmental standards. This helps in reducing pollution and ensuring a cleaner environment.
  • Windscreen and Mirrors: The windscreen is checked for cracks, hindering the driver's visibility. All mirrors must be in good condition for safe driving.
  • Doors and Latches: Doors need to open and close securely, and their latches must function adequately to ensure the safety of passengers.
  • Horn and Warning Devices: The horn and other warning devices, like indicators and hazard lights, are tested to ensure they work correctly to communicate with other road users.
  • Fuel System: The fuel system is inspected for leaks, and the fuel cap must seal properly to prevent fuel spills and fuel system issues.
  • Body and Structure: The overall condition of the vehicle's body and structure is assessed for signs of excessive corrosion or damage that might compromise safety.
  • Seats and Head Restraints: The seats and head restraints are checked for safety and secure attachment to prevent injury during a collision.
  • Wipers and Washers: Windscreen wipers must effectively clear the screen, and washers should be functional to maintain a clear view.
