If you own a car that has been in use on the UK roads for over three years, the chances are that you’ve already used an approved MOT centre in the past. Garth Road MOT Centre, located in Morden, performs MOTs in the Class IV category for passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, taxis, PHVs, PSVs, ambulances and three-wheeled vehicles. We see the annual MOT test as one of our more important garage services.
Class IV MOTs offer a visual and physical inspection of different safety, roadworthiness and emission standards on your vehicle. A qualified inspector conducts the test from an MOT centre approved by the DVSA, which sets the standards for MOT testing in the UK.
Our garage in Morden, as a recognised DVSA MOT centre, has dedicated inspection bays fitted with the equipment needed to perform the test, and the facilities to link to a nationwide database that stores details on MOTs across all categories. This ensures a faster turnaround of customer vehicles. The standard Class IV inspection last for 45 minutes.
You have the choice to leave your car in our care and to collect it later, or we can collect it from anywhere in the Morden area and return it to you later in the day. If you would prefer to wait at our MOT centre to see the test in operation, our garage has a waiting area with clear views into the workshop – which we believe is essential to running a transparent business operation. Our garage conducts Class IV MOTs by appointment only.
Our connection to the DVSA central database is about so much more than just keeping a record of the MOTs undertaken at our workshop. Nothing matters more to us than the satisfaction of our Morden and Surrey customers, and the Garth Road MOT Centre uses the details on our system to remind motorists when their next inspection is coming up. This ensures nobody consciously takes to the road without having a valid MOT certificate.
Driving with a valid MOT certificate could result in a maximum fine of £1,000, and often results in a court appearance because there is no fixed penalty for an offence.
If you respond to our reminders early enough, you can book in for Class IV MOTs up to one full month ahead of your current certificate expiring. Because MOTs can run concurrently, motorists in Morden get to enjoy 13 full months of certification. Garth Road MOT Centre offers fair and impartial testing in compliance with the current DVSA criteria.
If you fail an MOT test, our garage offers a comprehensive range of car repairs. We never administer additional garage services without your consent but if you leave us a number, we can contact you in the event of a test failure. We’ll do everything possible to have your car repaired on the same day and will even provide a re-test – completely free of charge!
