MOT tests for private motor vehicles and motorcycles

We are very sorry but until further notice we are not able to facilitate MOT tests for private motor vehicles and motorcycles. All our available resources have been dedicated to managing the Councils own vehicle fleet. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

We have our own VOSA approved MOT test station, offering totally impartial tests to the general public and businesses for the following vehicle types:

  • Class I & II (motorbikes) - £25
  • Class IV (cars) - £40
  • Class VII (vehicles between 3000kg and 3500kg Gross Vehicle Weight) - £45.

Our facility based at Wellington Street is a non-repair testing station where we employ eight VOSA approved qualified testers.  Free re-tests are available if your vehicle is returned within 10 working days.

We also carry out private hire and hackney carriage testing.

We are open Monday to Friday between 7.30am - 4.30pm.
