If you are unsure of what MOT garages do, or if you want to know exactly what MOTs are, we’re here to answer the questions of all motorists. MOT testing is a key service for Marsh Road Motors. Our workshop in Cowley also supplies and fits tyres, both premium and budget. Please call us now if you have any further questions of your own.
HAVE YOU A ROOM WHERE I CAN WAIT WHILE YOU CARRY OUT MOT TESTING ON MY VEHICLE?
Yes. Our Cowley garage has a comfortable lounge where hot drinks and refreshments are available. Sit back and relax while we undertake MOTs on your vehicles.
WHAT ARE MOTS?
MOTs are a safety measure which ensure all vehicles, including motorcycles, are roadworthy. Every year, your vehicle needs to be examined at MOT garages like our own. To pass MOT testing, it must comply with certain standards otherwise your vehicle is not deemed fit to drive. Our MOT testing centre is situated in the Cowley area of Oxford.
IF MY VEHICLE FAILS AN MOT, HOW LONG HAVE I GOT BEFORE IT NEEDS TO BE RE-TESTED?
You will have 10 days to present your vehicle to us again. Like all good MOT garages in Cowley and the surrounding Oxford area, we provide free MOT re-tests in this period.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DRIVE WITHOUT AN MOT?
You would be breaking the law and could face a fine of up to £1,000.
I’VE LOST MY MOT CERTIFICATE. CAN YOU RE-ISSUE A NEW ONE?
Yes, and we realise this is something that happens to many drivers. Once we’ve made the appropriate checks, we re-issue a duplicate certificate for MOTs at a small cost of £10.00.
MY CAR IS ONLY 2 YEARS OLD. DOES IT NEED MOT TESTING?
No. Only vehicles 3 years or older will require MOT testing. You will receive a reminder on a forthcoming inspection in the post a month before the due date if you register your vehicle details with our popular MOT testing centre in Cowley at the earliest opportunity.
DO I NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR MOT TESTING?
Yes. We are open every day during the week and we are one of the only MOT garages in Cowley to stay open until 2.00pm on a Saturday.
I KNOW MY VEHICLE NEEDS NEW TYRES OR IT WILL FAIL THE INSPECTION. CAN YOU HELP?
We have a wide range of tyres available and we can fit new tyres before we carry out MOTs. Branded and budget tyres are available and we have a large stock range available for road users in Cowley. All tyres, including our budget lines, come from trusted manufacturers.
WHAT MAKES YOUR MOT TESTING STATION DIFFERENT FROM OTHER MOT GARAGES IN COWLEY?
