Book a Peugeot MOT

Book an MOT with Swansway Peugeot

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, will conduct a comprehensive inspection. This test is not the same as having your vehicle serviced 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 separately list and 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, you may be entitled to a free re-test.

Can I help my Car Pass its MOT?

Around 1.5 million vehicles fail their MOT due to simple faults such as faulty bulbs or empty screen washer fluid. It's possible to anticipate most of these issues before your MOT is due, with a few simple checks:

Headlights and Indicators Make sure all of your car lights work properly. This includes headlights, sidelights, rear lights, hazard lights and indicators.

Brake lights Press the brake pedal and ask a friend or look in a reflection to check whether the rear brake lights are working.

Number plate Ensure that the number plate is clean and legible to people reading it.

Wheels and tyres Take a closer look at the wheels and tyres to make sure there is not damage and that the tyres are above the minimum legal tyre tread depth of 1.6mm.

Horn Test out the horn by giving it a short blast to make sure it's working.

Engine fluid and fuel Make sure that your vehicle is filled with enough fuel and engine oil.
