If every year you dread when the time rolls round to get your MOTs up to date, you’re probably using the wrong garage! MOT testing should be a simple, straightforward and painless process – and if you happen to fail, a clear avenue to making the grade should be presented. At Hersham Service Centre, based in Walton-on-Thames and covering all surrounding locales: from Cobham to Esher, East Molesey to West Molesey and over to Weybridge – this is our mission.
Whereas main dealers and larger garages have a factory line style approach to MOTs, ushering you in and out and often making you feel unwelcome, we take the opposite approach. It’s our aim to make you feel at home, and 100% clear on the ins and outs of the MOT testing procedure. Transparency is a big part of why motorists in Cobham, Esher, East Molesey, West Molesey and Weybridge visit us every year to sort out their MOTs.
If your vehicle is over three years old, it is legally required to undergo annual testing to ensure it is safe for the road. MOTs, which must be carried out at a licenced testing centre like our own, involve dozens of checks to the various components that make up your vehicle. Regular car servicing will increase the likelihood you pass first time.
It usually takes under an hour, often more toward the 45 minute mark. Driving a vehicle without an up to date MOT can lead to Cobham, Esher, East Molesey, West Molesey and Weybridge motorists receiving hefty fines and points on their licence. So beware!
A Hersham Service Centre mechanic will run you through the results of the test, carefully explaining the reasons why you failed. We will then suggest avenues to proceed: usually particular car repairs or general car servicing. While a big reason for our unrivalled reputation around the Cobham, Esher, East Molesey, West Molesey and Weybridge areas is our straightforward honesty, you are obviously free at any point to get a second opinion.
Once the issue has been dealt with, we will arrange a re-test at a time convenient for you; depending on the nature of the issue rectified, this might be doable right away on the spot! We want to make it quick and easy to get back on the road, but ensure that you and your fellow motorists are safe in doing so.
