MOT Chingford

To determine the roadworthiness of your car, our experts check the following components of your car while we conduct MOT test Chingford:


During our MOT checks we will inspect the tyre condition, tyre carcass and tread depth (including spare tyres). A minimum tread depth of 1.6 mm is required to pass the test.


Testers will check the required number of mirrors in your car and their condition. They should provide clear lateral vision.


Our experts will also inspect the condition of the front, rear and the boot doors. In a closed position, the latches should stay secure.


Driver’s seat adjustability is checked in this part of the inspection. In addition, all the seatbelts should be securely fit to ensure the occupants’ safety.


The proper functioning of the horn is necessary to pass the MOT test.


The condition and functionality of your car lights are checked. The headlamps, tail lights, hazard lights, etc. should be in proper working condition.

In addition, we check:

  • Brakes
  • Exhaust and emissions
  • Seat belts
  • Steering
  • Windscreen
  • Bonnet catch
  • Suspension
  • Fuel system
  • Body and structure
  • Battery & Wiring
  • Vehicle Identification Number
  • Load security
  • Towbars (excluding body around anchorage points)
  • Vehicle structure and general items
  • Wipers
  • Electrical components

The engine, clutch, and gearbox are not checked in an MOT inspection.

MOT Results

You will receive a VT20 certificate if your car has no defects or just a few minor problems. If the vehicle has major or dangerous defects, you will get a VT30 (Fail) certificate.

In case there is an issue in your car that is a minor defect for the time being but has the potential to become a major problem in the future, a VT32 advisory is given.

Your VT20 certificate will be valid for one year from its date of issue.

Note: The decision to pass or fail a vehicle in an MOT test is at the discretion of the tester of the DVSA-approved facility.

Partial Re-test

If your vehicle fails the MOT inspection, you can choose to get post-MOT repairs from us. Our team will make the necessary repair and replacements. After that, you can opt for a partial re-test from us free of cost. However, this has to be done within 10 working days of the actual MOT date.

It is illegal to drive on UK roads with a failed or invalid MOT certificate (except for driving to an MOT centre for a test). This can lead to heavy penalties and other legal complications.
