MOT with FREE re-test

If your vehicle is 3 years or older you are required by law to have an annual safety check.

Without an MOT certificate you will be unable to drive your vehicle lawfully or renew your road tax.

Book your next MOT with Salkelds

MOTs are carried out in our own MOT test station in Eastleigh by qualified mechanics.

Beware of cheaper MOTs by other garages, why?
You may see other garages offering cut price MOTs, however, if your vehicle doesn't pass it will need re-testing once repairs have been done. Those same garages will charge you again to have it re-tested.

Salkelds offer FREE MOT re-tests!

What will the MOT cost?

We charge £54.85 for the MOT with free re-testing.

Private hire vehicles are required to be tested annually. Hackney carriages are tested annually until they reach 6 years old when they are required to be tested every 6 months.

Did you know?
The expiry date on your new MOT is 12 months from the expiry of your old one. This means you could have an MOT that last 13 months. Not many people are aware of this.

What happens if your vehicle fails its MOT?

If the vehicle fails its MOT it means it no longer meets legal requirements and cannot be driven. You must get to the vehicle repaired and retested. Salkelds can obviously perform these repairs for you and we will be more than happy to provide a free no obligation quote for the necessary repairs. Don't forget, if you let us do your MOT and your vehicle fails we will re-test if for free!
