PARC Ltd have been in the industry for over 20 years and perform quality MOT tests Pontypool. Surprisingly, many of our customers often ask us what these are and what it involves, so we’re here to tell you more about them.
What Are MOT Tests?
A MOT test is a yearly 60-minute examination that all vehicles and motor vehicles must have to ensure they are safe for the road. They are measured in terms of performance, safety and whether the emissions meet UK regulations. All aspects on the vehicle are tested to be confirmed they are in full working order. If they aren’t, your local garage or us at PARC Ltd will make the necessary improvements. Once these are complete, another MOT test is done to pass the vehicle and allow it back on the roads.
Driving with an expired MOT test will result in a £1000 fine and your insurance could be cancelled, so we recommend booking your next MOT as soon as your current once passes. It may also be worth making it a week before it runs out as you never know how your circumstances could change over a year. To book with us, call the PARC garage on 01495 769700.
Early MOT Booking
It is often found that early MOT booking will not only give you time to get any possible repairs done but will also ensure you on time so there is less stress to quickly get your car checked. Also, if you are within 30 days of the renewal date, you can keep the original renewal date, instead of it being made earlier for the following year.
Even if you maintain your car throughout the year, general wear and ear isn’t avoidable so issues can still arise. Well looked after vehicles do tend to pass first time but it is always good to be on the safe side because of the inconvenience failing can bring.
Appealing MOT Tests Pontypool
Many people choose to go to an untrustworthy garage for their services, so they need to know about appealing MOT tests Pontypool. The DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) and DVA take appealed results and set up an appointment with you within 2 weeks of the test. It is best to not get any work done to your vehicle until you have cleared the results as it could be a waste of money. Although the success rate of these appeals is not always positive, it is always worth a try if you are having doubts.
