MOT Class 4 and 7

The Law

It is your responsibility to ensure that your BMW, Mercedes or BMW Mini is examined every 12 months if itís 3 years of older. Without a MoT certificate, you will be unable to renew your road tax and your car may not be insured. Having a current MoT certificate is also a legal requirement.

MoT Nominated Testers are accredited by VOSA to assess your vehicle against specific safety criteria and to pass it as acceptable and safe, or not. The assessment is based on the condition of the vehicle on the day.

Autobarn are licensed under VOSA to carry out MoT tests on class 4 and 7 vehicles. We pride ourselves on conducting a fair test and always try to pass your vehicle first time. However, if it fails we will do all we can to ensure your BMW, Mercedes or Mini will have the servicing and repairs required to ensure it passes the second time.

What is checked during the vehicle MoT?

An MoT certificate confirms that at the time the test was conducted and without any dismantling, the vehicle met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required.

When your vehicle passes its MoT, it doesnít mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate. We will separately list and inform you of any 'advisory' items that have passed the test but will require attention in the future. The test does not cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox.
