MOT Assessment services

Monnington Motors Ltd provides a complete range of services for vehicles that require an MOT assessment, and pre-MOT maintenance.

In the UK, every vehicle that is older than 3 years must be fully tested and certified road-worthy. Our fully authorised DVSA test centre has the facilities to carry out inspections, and to undertake any maintenance required for achieving a passing result for your vehicle. With prices starting from £51, our services provide you with access to one of the most competitively priced testing centres in the Newton Abbey/Torbay area.

MOT for all makes & models

Our state of the art systems and procedures – as well as the expertise of our personnel – allow us to provide services for all makes and models of vehicle. We take pride in offering both excellent customer care and great value for money, and our customers receive a free re-test within ten days for any car that fails to meet the requirements on its initial assessment.

We work hard, however, to ensure that this is rarely required. With pre-MOT inspections, annual assessments of minimum standards and current emissions compliance, as well as the option to undertake tests up to 28 days in advance, we ensure your car is in optimum condition prior to every inspection.

Full and thorough MOT assessment

All MOT vehicle inspections check the condition and performance of each of your car’s most important functions. Every assessment will ensure that:

  • the condition of doors and body work are at an acceptable level for assessment;
  • the brake system is safe and responsive;
  • wheels and tyres are free from damage and excess wear, and that they are properly fitted.
  • your vehicle’s exhaust and emissions levels;
    the steering and suspension are responsive and well maintained;
  • your windscreen is free from damage and weak points, and that wipers and washer bottles are functioning correctly;
  • seats are safe and in good condition, and that seatbelts are fitted and operate correctly;
  • your car horn is working correctly and that lights and mirrors are undamaged;
  • the fuel system is safe and efficient;
  • your vehicle identification number (VIN) matches the vehicle registration plates.
