All about your MOT

All vehicles over 3 years old are required by law to have an annual MOT. Without a valid MOT certificate, you are unable to drive your vehicle legally, renew your road tax or apply for insurance.

To find out when your next MOT is due, check your last MOT certificate. You can put your vehicle in for its MOT up to 1 month before your current MOT expires. This gives you plenty of time to organise the test and arrange any repairs your vehicle needs to pass.

MOT tests are regulated by the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) and only a VOSA-qualified tester can complete your MOT. At Phipson, our technicians are fully qualified VOSA testers for class 4 vehicles – that’s all private and public vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes.

A certified class 4 MOT centre

If you drive a car, 4×4 or van, your vehicle will need a class 4 MOT.

At Phipson, we operate a fully equipped class 4 MOT testing bays. Our experienced testers will carry out a full MOT check – including lights, steering and suspension, tyres, mirrors, brakes, wheels, bodywork, fuel systems and emission levels – basically every aspect of your vehicle that ensures it’s safe to drive on the road.

What our customers say

When I was told my car failed it’s MOT, I was worried it would mean a fortune to fix. But the guys at Phipson explained it in a way I could understand and the pricing was very fair

Samantha Brown – Harnham

Adam picked up my car as expected just before I headed out to work. It’s a relatively new car so it sailed through and was back on my drive by the time I needed to take my son to football. Couldn’t ask for a better service!

Nathan Walker

I booked my Car in for a full service and MOT and Grant and Dan from Phipson were excellent! They didn’t keep me waiting and really knew their stuff. I always recommend them to friends.
