Booking an MOT with Miles Garage

MOT Testing to suit your day

Please make sure you book your MOT well in advance of the expiry date. Call a us on 01892 525 331 to book an MOT test date and time that suits your schedule. Then just drop the vehicle into us on the day and then spend a few hours in the centre of historic Tunbridge Wells (we are just around the corner from the High Street and the Pantiles) or jump the train to London (The station is five minute walk if that).

The MOT test can be completed up to one month before the expiry date of your current MOT certificate without losing any of the time remaining. Remember we will need your vehicle registration in order to book you in, so please make sure you have it handy when you call.

If you can never remember when your MOT test is due we have an MOT Reminder service that can help. We will send you an email or call you nearer the time to remind you to get your MOT booked in plenty of time before it expires.

MOT Failure - what next?

If your vehicle is shown to be unsafe and fails its MOT we will call to advise you straight away, as many of the issues that cause a failure can be addressed there and then. If we can't sort it for you on the day we'll issue you with test report called a VT30. This comprehensive MOT test report lists all failure points that need to be addressed.

Most of the time we can order and install any required parts and have it passed and ready for you next day. We also have courtesy cars that may well be available as an overnight replacement.

Please be aware that you can only drive your vehicle without a valid MOT certificate if you are taking it to an MOT centre to get the vehicle tested or retested. We will perform a FREE MOT retest for any of the failed points that we have corrected for you.
