What Happens if I Fail my MOT?

First of all, you can relax – it’s not the end of the world. While in some very specific cases vehicles can be on their “last legs” and it’ll cost more to get the car up to roadworthy standard than to simply replace it, in most situations on the spot car repairs can get you back on the road safely and legally.

The most common causes of MOT failure experienced by motorists in Brixton, Clapham, Streatham, West Norwood and East Dulwich include: lighting and signalling faults (around 30% of total), brake issues (around 9.6% of total), insufficient tread depth or improper load rating on tyres (10% of total), and obscured vision of road due to broken wipers, poorly positioned stickers, cracked windscreens or similar issues (6.6% of total).

If you’re not lucky enough to sail through first try, we’ll ensure the cause for failure is properly explained and shown to you; as an independent car garage, transparency is very important to us. Then we’ll recommend the best course of car repair.
