MOTs for Cowley and Oxford Motorists

Marsh Road Motors is one of the leading MOT garages covering Cowley, Oxford and the surrounding local area. As a DVSA-approved MOT testing centre, we carry out the annual roadworthiness and safety test for all vehicles which are three or more years old. We also have a wide range of tyres in stock to suit all vehicles.


MOTs are carried out by experienced and fully trained technicians who undertake a series of physical and observational checks. These checks evaluate safety, emissions and roadworthiness to determine whether Class IV vehicles driven by motorists from in and around the Cowley and Oxford areas pass or fail their MOTs.


When carrying out checks at our Cowley garage, we make a note of any potential points that might become an issue later on. For example, worn tyres that are just above the legal tread limit will be made an advisory and we make you aware of this at the end of the inspection.


MOT garages like our own usually take up to 45 minutes to complete MOT testing. Did you know that MOTs include over 150 checks on various parts of the vehicle including lights, steering, brakes and safety belts? If, for some reason, your car or light commercial vehicle fails during MOT testing, our Cowley workshop provides free re-testing for customers in Oxford and in all surrounding parts of the local Oxfordshire area.

Customers in Oxford, Cowley and the surrounding Oxfordshire area can expect MOTs to be undertaken in a fair and transparent manner. We can provide you with a full list of the elements our DVSA-approved technicians look at when carrying out MOT testing should you require one. You may wish to look at these elements before MOTs take place.


We believe that all MOT garages should have a welcoming and comfortable place to wait while inspectors carry out MOT testing but this is not always the case in some Cowley and Oxford workshops. When you use Marsh Road Motors, we make you feel at home with free refreshments. These are, of course, also available to customers having tyres replaced.
