Before you take your vehicle for its annual Mot test, consider doing pre MOT check. Technician of Modlen Garage can check your car quick and easy to give she the best chance of passing the test – saving you time and money.

About 1.5 million vehicles fail their MOT due to simple things such as: incorrect bulbs colour, empty windscreen washer fluid reservoir, too little tyre tread, or worn wiper blades. It’s possible to anticipate most of these issues during a quick check of your car. If you do find any faults that you’re unable to easily rectify yourself, you can contact Modlen Garage so they can complete the work required before the test is carried out.

You can have a look at MOT Checklist below – taking a couple of minutes to identify problems before an MOT test.
