MOT is a mandatory annual test that assesses a vehicle’s roadworthiness and safety. In UK, most automobiles over 3 years of age need to pass an MOT test to remain road-legal.
Driving without a valid MOT certificate is illegal, and car owners may end up with a fine of up to £2,500 and 3 penalty points. Therefore, if you are located in or around Bromsgrove, looking for a comprehensive MOT test, Bromsgrove Service Centre is your one-stop solution.

Class 4 includes all passenger cars with up to 12 seats, ambulances, taxis, caravans, goods vehicles (weighing up to 3000kg), dual-purpose vehicles, etc. On the other hand, goods vehicles (with gross design weight ranging from 3000kg-3500kg) fall under class 7.
Before conducting the test, our technicians will check the MOT history of your vehicleto identify any fault in your vehicle that was flagged before.
Here is a list of checks included in our MOT Bromsgrove.
Our experienced testers will check the overall conditions of all car lights, including headlights, indicators, brake lights, fog lights and their self-levelling cleaning capabilities.

During an MOT test Bromsgrove, our experts will run a thorough check of the steering wheel and column. Also, we will check the suspension system and its components, including shock absorbers and struts.
- Windscreen wipers
Our technicians will inspect your car‘s windscreen for chips and cracks. Also, we ensure that the wipers and washer bottle are in optimum working condition and can provide drivers with a clear view of the road ahead.
Our experts inspect the brake discs, pads, callipers and the other components of your vehicle’s braking system during MOT check Bromsgrove.
- Exhaust and Emissions
Excessive and visible smoke from your vehicle can lead to an MOT failure. Our technicians will check if the emissions are within the legal level. Moreover, we inspect if the exhaust system and fuel filler cap are working optimally.
As per the UK laws, your car tyres must have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm. During an MOT test Bromsgrove, our technicians will check if the tyre tread depth meets the standards. Also, we will check for cuts, bulges and signs of damage on these units.
MOT pass, fail and retest
If your vehicle passes the test, you will receive a VT20 certificate. Else, you will end up with a VT30 “fail” certificate. However, you can also turn to us for comprehensive post-MOT repairs so that your vehicle passes the partial re-test without any hassle.
Please note that, since the 2018 update, faults in a car are now classified into three categories – dangerous, major and minor. While your car can still pass MOT Bromsgrove with a minor fault (you will receive an advisory note, so you can see what should be done in the near future), a dangerous or major defect will certainly land you a VT30 certificate.
