How do we conduct MOT tests?

The auto experts at our garage check all the components of your car for a faultless MOT. Firstly, our team will MOT check history to identify any previously flagged issues. Then, we will conduct several tests to ensure your car performs optimally.

Here are some of the essential checks included in our MOT check Mansfield:

  • Exhaust system
  • Lights
  • Seats and seat belts
  • Braking system
  • Tyres and wheels
  • Number plates
  • Horns
  • Suspension system, etc.

After we identify all the problem areas in your vehicle, we segregate them into the following categories:

  • Dangerous
  • Major
  • Minor

Your car will pass the MOT Mansfield if it has Minor issues or advisories. On the other hand, in the case of Major or Dangerous faults, the vehicle will fail the test.

Below are some of the primary causes of MOT failures in the UK.


Faulty brakes are a leading cause of MOT failure in the United Kingdom. Therefore, you must always pay attention to signs of a failing brake, like a soft or spongy brake pedal, your car swerving from one side to another, or an increased braking distance.

Tyre condition and pressure

If your car’s tyres have lesser than 1.6mm of tread depth, inaccurate pressure, bulges, cuts, or other signs of damage, the vehicle will fail its MOT test Mansfield.

Malfunctioning windscreen wipers

Data suggest that 6.6% of MOT failures are due to malfunctioning windscreen wipers. You can avoid such issues by checking that your car’s windscreen wipers and washers are in optimal working condition. Furthermore, you must ensure that your view of the road remains unobstructed.

MOT pass, fail and partial retest

If your car has zero or Minor issues, it can successfully clear the MOT assessment. However, our experts strongly suggest fixing these problems soon, as they can lead to further complications if left unattended. Alternatively, the presence of Major and Dangerous issues in your car deems it unsuccessful in this assessment, as it cannot meet the safety standards outlined by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.

According to UK laws, you cannot drive your vehicle with a VT30 certificate.

Should your vehicle fail the test, we will issue a ‘refusal of an MOT Mansfield test certificate’ or a VT30 certificate stating details of the faults that require repairs. Now, you can easily book a partial retest with us within ten working days of the original test. We recommend you get the necessary post-MOT repairing done at our garage before the partial retest.
