MOT Ferndown

The penalty for not having an up to date MOT certificate could be a fine. Also if the vehicle is involved in an accident you may be asked to produce your MOT certificate and an insurance claim could be affected by the absence of your MOT, especially in the case of injury.

We have full modern workshop facilities and our wealth of experience in specialising in general repairs, servicing and engine diagnostics means that if there is a problem with your MOT we're best placed to get it sorted.

If your vehicle requires work to help it pass its MOT test then rest assured that we can do the work to the highest standard and usually have you on the road the same day. All repairs carried out at Knights Autos come with standard manufacturer’s guarantees.

During the MOT test Knights Autos’ tester will conduct an inspection and a comprehensive series of checks around your vehicle, including the interior, exterior, under the bonnet and under the vehicle. The result of each check is recorded- if the vehicle passes a VT20 ‘pass’ certificate is issued. If the vehicle fails to meet the required standard a VT30 ‘failure’ document is issued. Items that are not quite a failure, but worthy of a mention to you so you can keep an eye on them, are brought to your attention as ‘advisory’ items.

The Legal Stuff

If your vehicle is 3 years or older you are required by law to have an annual safety check, the Ministry of Transport test, commonly known as the MOT Test. The purpose of the MOT test is to ensure the vehicle meets the minimum safety level required by law.

It is your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is examined every 12 months. Without a current MOT certificate you will be unable to drive your vehicle lawfully or renew your road fund license. Recent computerisation of the MOT testing system by VOSA means police and mobile camera units can now check remotely to see if your vehicle has a current MOT.

Knights Autos provide MOTs to customers throughout Ferndown, Wimborne, West Moors, Verwood, Colehill, Longham, Bear Cross, Walford, Furzhill, Canford Magna, Hampreston, West Parley, Three Legged Cross and throughout Dorset and beyond.
