What is a Motability MOT?

An MOT is a legal vehicle inspection that involves a series of tests to determine whether road safety and environmental standards are being met.

It is important that you arrange for an MOT to be carried out on your vehicle, before the end of the standard three-year Motability lease. The MOT must be carried out regardless of whether you intend to keep your vehicle on a lease extension or hand it back at the end of the lease agreement.

If you would like to wait whilst our technicians work on your vehicle, you can take a seat in our comfortable customer lounge and enjoy complimentary refreshments and Wi-Fi.
