Book your MOT today with a trusted, independent garage in Bicester. As a DVSA (VOSA) authorised testing facility, we carry-out fast and efficient vehicle checks for clients throughout Kidlington, Brackley, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Annual MOTs are a legal requirement for all vehicles on the road which are three years or older and should be performed by approved garages and MOT test centres. At Reliance Auto Test (Bicester), we can test your vehicle at our state-of-the-art workshop in Bicester, up to 28 days before your MOT is due and even send out reminders when your MOT certificate is running out.
Our fully-equipped testing garage allows us to undertake MOTs and inspections on all vehicles in the Class IV category and we have the technical expertise to work on models of any type and age. Whether you’re a private car owner from Kidlington or a commercial client in-need of fleet MOT services in Brackley, we are happy to arrange annual MOTs.
The purpose of an MOT test is to ensure that your vehicle meets the UK environmental standards set by the DVLA. When your vehicle meets the minimum criteria, a certificate is issued for 12 months and added to the national database system. MOTs check the general health and condition of your car but do not include inspections of engines, clutches or gearboxes, which is why annual car servicing is also required.
During an MOT test at our facilities, motorists from Bicester, Kidlington, Brackley and the surrounding areas can expect a comprehensive check of your vehicle. Our trained technicians are experienced in carry-out MOTs on a wide variety of cars and small commercial vehicles and will ensure that all relevant components meet legal standards.
Some of the key parts we check during an MOT include:
We recommend that Bicester, Kidlington, Brackley and other UK motorists regularly check their lights, tyres and wiper blades to keep them well-maintained. This will give your vehicle a better chance to pass MOTs first time and keeps your car in safe working order.
Vehicle Diagnostics – Engine diagnostics will feature heavily at our new garage in Bicester and our company will be able to handle all of your vehicle’s engine management requirements professionally.
We can run your car through an ECU code reading machine to highlight any faults with your car’s computerised system. We will then inform you if the results of our engine diagnostics indicate that any further work needs to take place at our Bicester workshop.
MOT Testing – Annual MOT testing is required for all vehicles once they are over 3 years old. We can test your vehicle at our new Bicester workshop up to 28 days before an MOT is due. We even send out reminders for future MOT testing because all certificate issues are now recorded on a nationwide database. MOTs take 45 minutes on average to conduct.
