MOTS in Dunfermline

Osborne Motors is a fully licenced MOT test centre and our experienced mechanics can test all makes and models of petrol and diesel vehicles. Your vehicle is required by law to be inspected every year, failure to do so can result in a £1,000 fine and would also invalidate your insurance policy.

What is inspected during an MOT?

An MOT inspection takes around 45 minutes-1 hour and you are welcome to wait whilst our mechanics complete the inspection, or come back later at a time that suits you. 

The areas of your vehicle that will be inspected are:

  • Electrical equipment, including lights
  • Steering
  • Tyres
  • Suspension
  • Brakes
  • Seat belts and seats
  • Exhaust and emissions
  • Mirrors, wipers and windscreen
  • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

 

What can I do before an MOT inspection?

There are lots of things you can do to ensure your car goes in for its inspection in the best possible condition, from cleaning your car inside and out, checking the lights and replacing any faulty bulbs, to ensuring that your tyre tread is within the legal limit.  For our tips on keeping your car in great condition all year round and saving money on your MOT, check our blog post.

What happens next?

If your vehicle passes its MOT with no faults we will issue you with a VT20 document to confirm that it is roadworthy; this will be valid for one year from the date of issue.  We might make recommendations that you should correct some minor faults in the future but your vehicle would still be legally roadworthy in this case.

If your vehicle fails its MOT we will issue a VT30 form to record this.  If the faults are major but not dangerous, and your previous MOT is still within the last month of its validity, you may technically still be able to drive your vehicle but we can advise on this at the time.  

Our experienced mechanics can talk through any faults found, explain what is required to correct them, and provide a competitive estimate of the costs to do so.
