DVSA Approved MOT Testing station
Got your next MOT coming up?
At New Chapel Garage Hedge End, our team provide DVSA-authorised testing and repairs for cars, vans and light commercial class 4 vehicles. Call 01489 797878 to arrange your next test appointment.
All tests are carried out on-site by professional IMI-approved technicians, with most tests taking around 45 minutes. Just drop your vehicle off at the garage and we’ll call you when it’s ready - or watch your test from our viewing bay and enjoy a free hot or cold rink in our waiting room.
MOT Testing - The Facts
An MOT certificate confirms that your vehicle is fully roadworthy, meeting standards for safety and emissions. The deadline for a vehicle’s first MOT is the third anniversary of the date it was registered; after that point, each MOT test is due by the anniversary of its previous test. (These rules vary for certain specialist vehicles, such as lorries, buses and ambulances.)
Official test centres are authorised by the national Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (formerly the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency). To check your local test centre is officially authorised, look out for the blue ‘three triangles’ logo.
Don’t let your MOT certificate expire! If you get caught driving without it, and you’re not on your way to get your vehicle tested (which you’ll need to prove), you’ll get a £1000 fine and you could even have your vehicle impounded. If you’re not sure when your next MOT is due, give us a call and we’ll look it up for you!
Different MOT tests cover different vehicle classes. New Chapel Garage Hedge End provides testing for class 4 vehicles, which includes cars and light commercial vans.
