Book a Land Rover MOT

Book an MOT with Swansway Land Rover

An MOT test is something that is required by law in the Uk for any vehicle over 3 years old. The test is devised to ensure you vehicle is roadworthy and therefore strict criteria must be met in order for the vehicle to pass. A broad range of vehicle safety checks must be completed by an MOT garage with DVSA-approved examiners, including lights, tyres, seatbelts and emissions.

During the test, a technician will assess your vehicle and conduct a comprehensive inspection. An MOT differs from a service as the MOT test does not check the general mechanical condition of the vehicle.

If the vehicle passes, the tester will provide you with a pass certificate. They will also inform you of any 'advisory' or 'minor' items that will require attention in the near future so you can keep an eye on them.

If the vehicle fails, it will be required for a re-test.
