WHAT IS AN MOT?

An MOT (Ministry of Transport) test is a regular examination that is required to verify the road safety and roadworthiness of your vehicle. This test is legally required for all vehicles older than 3 years, and by law it is required to have passed an annual MOT test with the primary objective of ensuring the safety of both the driver and other road users. You'll also need the vehicle's registration number.

The MOT test covers various components, such as brakes, steering, suspension, tyre condition, lights, windscreen wipers and mirrors, exhaust, bodywork, and emissions levels. By undergoing this evaluation, your car can meet the necessary standards to ensure a secure and reliable driving experience.

The vehicle must meet certain DVSA standards in order to pass the test, and any components which do not meet the required standards won't get a valid mot certificate until the components have been repaired or replaced before the vehicle can be driven.

The MOT test is carried out by our authorised testing centre, using the latest workshop technology, tools and vehicle diagnostics equipment with expert technicians. The cost of the test can vary depending on the age and type of vehicle. It is important that the test is carried out at least once a year, as this helps to ensure that the vehicle is safe to drive and meets the correct legal requirements.

Our Eastbourne MOT team are ready to give you accurate and honest advice to help you get your car through its MOT as smoothly as possible.

The MOT test can often be a source of stress for drivers, as it can be difficult to know what components will be checked and whether the vehicle will pass or the car fails. However, there are a few MOT preparation tips to help prepare for the test and increase your cars' chances of success.

Before you book online or over the phone for your Eastbourne MOT test with ECF Car Care, make sure that you have all of the necessary paperwork for the test, including the valid vehicle registration document and any certificates for components such as tyres or exhausts. You should also ensure that the vehicle is in a clean and tidy condition, as this can help to make the inspection process easier.

Secondly, check the vehicle before taking it for the test. Check that your washer fluid and wiper blades are working, and look for any signs of wear and tear, such as cracks in the windscreen, worn tyres, or broken lights. If any of these components are found, they should be replaced before the MOT test is carried out.

Finally, make sure that you keep your vehicle well-maintained throughout the year. Regular car maintenance such as a car service and any repairs can help to keep the vehicle in a roadworthy condition and reduce the chances of it failing its MOT in Eastbourne, East Sussex. In conclusion, the MOT test is an important part of ensuring that your vehicle is safe and roadworthy.

How often should I have an MOT in Eastbourne?

The test should be carried out at least once a year, and it is important to make sure that the vehicle is in a clean and tidy condition before taking it for the test. Additionally, regular car servicing and repairs can help to reduce the chances of the vehicle failing its MOT.

OUR SERVICES

BELOW ARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS THE ECF MOT EASTBOURNE TEAM GET ASKED.

If you have another question that’s not covered, give us a call or send a WhatsApp message.

CAN WE USE A COURTESY CAR?

Yes! Using one of our courtesy cars are free, to use one, they do need to be fully comprehensively insured.

Check with your insurance company or take out a day insure policy with customer service.

WHAT QUALITY PARTS SHOULD WE USE?

ECF offer a variety of brands but will always recommend manufacturer or premium parts. ECF service advisors will work with you to determine the best parts to use on your vehicle.

Cheaper isn’t always better and quite often vehicle manufacturers will just stamp their own badge & part number on parts made by Bosch, Delphi or Paget – In other words, let us do the research for you.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MOT AND A SERVICE?

A service is different to your MOT test.

It’s common to have both done at the same time as this will save you time & money. An MOT is an annual test to check your vehicle’s safety and make sure it is in a roadworthy condition.

It is a legal requirement to get an MOT done if your car is over 3 years old.

It is illegal to drive on a public road without a valid MOT certificate.
