MOT Testing in Southampton | Class IV Inspection Services

Call Salek’s Motors today and book in for MOT testing at a modern workshop in the Southampton area with dedicated inspection bays. We perform inspections in the Class IV category and offer a fair, impartial service that checks different safety and roadworthiness aspects on your vehicle. All MOTs meet the current testing criteria set by VOSA

Our garage has dedicated bays which help appointments run to time and fit in with the needs of walk-in customers from Southampton and the surrounding Hampshire area.

MOT testing is a mandatory requirement in the UK on all cars aged three years or over. It is an offence to drive without an MOT certificate and, in addition to invalidating the terms of an insurance policy, non-compliance could see the owner fined up to £1,000.00. It is always a more prudent, ethical and responsible choice to arrange MOTs ahead of an expiry date.

Salek’s Motors helps in this regard by sending out reminders to existing customers in the Southampton area well in advance of the next due MOT inspection. Book in early and we can test your own vehicle up to one full month before the current certificate expires.

Please read the testimonials of some of our previous customers, many of whom use us as a preferred choice for Class IV MOT testing on all of their family vehicles.


What is an MOT Test?

MOT testing combines dozen of checks on for your car to cover the lights, mirrors, wipers, seat belts, wind screen and exhaust system. The UK has more than 21,000 approved centres. All workshops performing MOTs, including those in Southampton and Hampshire, display an official blue sign consisting of three white triangles – two to the top and one at the bottom.

All items in the MOT test relate to safety, roadworthiness and emissions. The inspection doesn’t cover the performance of the engine, the gearbox or the transmission system.

Typically, an MOT takes 45 minutes to complete. Should your car fail the test and you’d like to leave it at our garage in Southampton for any subsequent repairs, we’ll do everything possible to finish the required work on the same day and to perform a free re-test. You can only drive away from an MOT testing centre after a failure if you still have a current certificate, or if you are taking your car to another garage to have repair work undertaken.

We invite customers to relax in a comfortable viewing area and to watch our inspectors perform MOTs while enjoying a complimentary tea or coffee. If you would rather leave your vehicle at our Southampton workshop before going to work and then pick it up again on the way home, this won’t be a problem and we’ll do everything we can to accommodate you.

Should your car need repairs after failing an MOT test, we promise to seek your approval for them and will never start any work until we have an agreement to do so.
