Did you know MOT test demand is set to soar over the next three months?
The need for vehicles to go through the DVLA MOT inspection will be over 60% higher in September, October and November because more than half of the nation’s vehicle owners deferred having an MOT’s during lockdown. This increase will see requests for MOT appointments soar as these new expiry dates will be added to the usual number of cars already due an MOT during these months.
With this in mind, we are urging all drivers to get their car MOT booked as soon as they can, to ensure you are not left unable to secure a test prior to your MOT expiry date. Driving your car with an expired MOT will cost you in the form of a fine and also points added to your licence!
We have MOT appointments available now and we are urging you to “Beat the Rush” and get your MOT carried out as soon as possible. If you get your MOT done now, you can be sure your vehicle is roadworthy – and you’ll beat the rush later in the year.
Don’t worry about getting your car MOT completed earlier than its renewal date. You can get your test done up to a month (minus a day) early, and still retain your existing renewal date. Vehicles are more likely to fail the MOT the longer it has been since their last test, so even if your renewal date is over month away it should be a consideration to have the MOT done now.
As well as making sure your vehicle is safe to hit the road, we can make sure your bank balance is healthy too. Not only can you spread the cost of your MOT inspection using our Payment Assist programme, but any repairs that are required to make your car roadworthy can also be added to the balance, ensuring that you don’t need to hand over a lump sum at a time when you may well be trying to balance things financially after a few months of being unable to get to work.
Here’s how the Payment Assist programme works…
Upon completion of the MOT and any necessary repairs, you pay only 25% of the bill on the day you collect your vehicle, you can then spread the remaining balance over the next three months with NO added interest, so as an example:
The total cost of repairs/services = £400.00
– 1st Payment in branch 1st September = £100.00
– 2nd Payment of £100.00 is taken by direct debit on 1st October
– 3rd Payment of £100.00 is taken by direct debit on 1st November
– 4th Payment 0f £100.00 is taken by direct debit on 1st December
So with a little help from us, you can be back on the road this autumn, with a car you know is safe to be on the road, without leaving your bank balance in the red.
