Are you looking for MOT IV for your vehicle?

You will be subjected to hefty penalties if caught driving without a VT20 (valid MOT certificate) anywhere in the UK. In case of an accident, you would more likely not be covered by your insurance either.

Do you know that passing an MOT Hemel Hempstead has now become a lot easier than before?

Once you have discovered the offerings of VP Autoservices, all your searches for ‘MOT centres near me' will end. Our MOT testers follow all the protocols affirmed by the DVSA to determine the roadworthiness of a vehicle.

We conduct MOT checks Hemel Hempstead for all Class 4 vehicles. You are most welcome to wait until our certified testers have completed all the necessary inspections; otherwise, just leave your vehicle on-site and pick it up at a time at your convenience.

For bookings or if you have any questions, please call us on 01442 268163. You can also book a testing appointment using the booking section on this website.

Components inspected during the MOT

As a certified, DVSA-approved workshop, we thoroughly check all necessary components like:

  • Brakes
  • Lights
  • Car body condition
  • Exhaust and emission system
  • Fuel system
  • Horn
  • Steering
  • Suspension
  • Mirrors
  • Tyres
  • Wheels
  • Windscreen and wipers, and several other parts

It must be noted no parts are dismantled while conducting the MOT. It is strictly a visual inspection and a separate emission test where our certified testers point out faulty sightings that may cause danger if not repaired.

Here is why you should go for a Pre-MOT Check-up or Service

To avoid the hassle of failing the MOT test the first time, having to get repairs done and then getting the vehicle partially re-tested, opt for a lighter version of the test in the form of pre-MOT service. It covers all the necessary checks. If any faults are found, they can be quickly repaired, and parts can be changed if necessary. This way, your car will pass its MOT in one go.

If you wish to gather further information about this process, reach out to us. Call us, send us an email, or come directly to our workshop.

Facts Regarding MOT That You Must Know

You must bring your vehicle annually for an MOT inspection once its registration has turned over 3 years old. Though we thoroughly check the potential malfunctions, certain parts like the vehicle's gearbox, engine and clutch system remain unattended during an MOT.

VT20 Certificate: This indicates an MOT pass.

A vehicle will still pass its MOT in case of minor faults, but a so-called advisory note will be issued, and the faults will be noted in the MOT system. These minor faults should be rectified as soon as possible.

VT30 Certificate: This means a failed MOT.

You get the VT30 certificate in case of “Major Defects” and “Dangerous Defects”. The vehicle must no longer be driven. It is also not allowed to park on public roads. Only after the necessary repairs mentioned on the VT30 have been carried out and the vehicle has been partially retested within 10 working days a VT20 certificate can be issued. Its validity stays intact for one year.

Please do not worry too much.
