Are you looking for MOT Services for your vehicle?

mot

The MOT test is an annual assessment that checks a vehicle’s roadworthiness and safety level. It is mandatory for all motor vehicles above 3 years old as per government regulations. In fact, without a valid MOT certificate, you cannot drive your vehicle legally.

Thus, if your car is more than 3 years old and due for an MOT Leeds, drive down to Silver Lane Garage (Leeds) Ltd.

At our facility, we conduct MOTs for Class1, 2 and 4 vehicles at affordable prices. As a leading automobile facility in Leeds, we also offer a range of vehicle repair and replacement services. Ergo, you may bring your car to our garage if you think any of its parts are out of order and can lead to an MOT fail.

Why not combine the MOT test with an interim or annual full service. This way you can save time and money plus make sure your vehicle is ready for the MOT test.

Understanding MOT Leeds

If your vehicle passes the MOT test Yeadon, Leeds, we will issue you a VT20 certificate, which stays legitimate for a year. Following that, we also record it in the MOT database.

On the other hand, we issue a VT30 certificate in case your motor vehicle doesn’t comply with the road safety and environmental standards as specified by DVSA guidelines. If your vehicle fails the test and in case the previous MOT certificate is not valid any longer, you cannot drive your vehicle until the stated defects are repaired, as per the rules.

DVSA classifies defects into three categories – namely, minor, major, and dangerous defects.

However, you can avoid nearly all inconsistencies leading to MOT fails by opting for routine maintenance of your vehicle. That’s why we recommend our patrons to bring their cars to our garage whenever they realise an issue.

MOT - Class 1, 2 and 4

We conduct MOT checks for the following categories of vehicles:

  • Class 1 MOT: Motorcycles with a maximum engine capacity of 200cc.
  • Class 2 MOT: Motorcycles with engine capacity over 200cc.
  • Class 4 MOT: Cars (up to 8 passenger seats), motor caravans, etc.

What’s checked during an MOT?

We thoroughly check the following aspects as per the DVSA guidelines:

  • Lights
  • Battery and wiring
  • Horn
  • Wipers
  • Seat belts
  • Suspension
  • Brakes
  • Exhaust and emissions
  • Tyres and wheels
  • Steering
  • Windscreen
  • Bonnet hatch
  • Mirrors
  • Doors
  • Windscreen
  • Number plate, etc.

If all these components meet the legal standards, your vehicle passes the assessment. Otherwise, we detail the shortcomings based on those classifications earlier stated in the VT30 certificate.

Common causes of an MOT fail

While discrepancies in any of the aforesaid aspects can lead to an MOT fail, the following are the most common reasons:

  • Lights – According to the Department of Vehicle Standards Agency, nearly 30% of all MOT fails in the UK is due to light and signalling issues.
  • Brakes – Almost 9.6% of all MOT failures occur due to inconsistencies in the braking
  • Wipers, mirrors, and washers – Approximately 8.5% of defects are concerned with the driver’s view of the road.

Apart from these, other reasons such as faulty steering and suspension, and a malfunctioning exhaust system are also common. You should look out for the warning signs, and should you come across any, come down to our facility - Silver Lane Garage (Leeds) Ltd. - for vehicle check-ups and maintenance.
