Van MOT Testing from Boxer Motor Works
At Boxer Motor Works we aim to give you the best MOT service possible. We are able to test vehicles in class 4 and 7 having the latest automated test lane facility plus an over flow class 4 bay.
An MOT can be booked by appointment or while you wait. The average waiting time is 45 minutes to 1 hour and you are free to use our comfortable sitting area whilst you wait which includes Free coffee, tea and a WiFi connection.
Everyone who uses a vehicle on the road is required to keep it in the roadworthy condition. The road-worthiness is checked in the interests of road safety and the environment by the test we call the MOT. The first test is required once a car is three years old. (There are different rules if you use it as a taxi).
The MOT looks at some important items on your car to see that it meets key legal requirements when it is tested. You should be aware that the MOT certificate is not a guarantee of the general mechanical condition of a vehicle.
An MOT certificate confirms that at the time of the test of the test, without dismantling, the vehicle met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. It does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate. The test does not cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox. Some of the things checked are:
Free from excessive corrosion or damage in specific areas, no sharp edges.
No leaks. Cap fast, seals secure. The fuel cap will need to be opened. Make sure the key is available.
Condition, security, digits correctly formed and spaced.
Condition, operation, security and correct colour. Also the headlamps will be checked to see if the aim is correct.
Tyres and Wheels:
Condition, operation and performance (efficiency test). Note the removal of the road wheels is not part of the test.
Steering and Suspension:
Correct condition and operation.
