Our MOT Test Cambridge

We are a trustworthy testing centre for MOT Cambridge.

Here is a sneak peek at our MOT checklist:

Our experienced team will go through your vehicle’s previous MOT test Cambridge and begin inspecting car components like the following:

Suspension And Steering

During this inspection, a detailed diagnosis of the suspension components and the steering column is done.

We will inspect the front and rear suspension to ensure that shock absorbers are secure and don't leak. Our tester will "bounce" your vehicle to check whether shock absorbers dampen the springs adequately.

Our tester will ensure that the steering wheel and column are in good condition and fixed properly and that there isn't excessive "free play" in the system. We will also inspect steering bearings for wear, and check all bolts, clamps, gaiters, and universal joints.

In case of power steering, our expert will ensure that the minimum power steering fluid level is in the reservoir and will test the operation of power steering with the engine running. We will also check the attachment of the steering rack or steering box, both concerning the tightness of nuts and bolts, and structural cracking or corrosion of the vehicle chassis where it is attached.

Wheels and Tyres

During our MOT Cambridge, we check your tyre’s tread depth and ensure that they are suitable for your vehicle. The tread depth must be at least 1.6 mm throughout the central three-quarters of the tread width. Our tester will also look for cuts larger than 25 mm, and bulges, lumps, tears, tread separation, or exposure of the cord. If your tyres are close to the legal limit, you may receive an advisory that you need new rubber soon.

Our tester will also check whether tyres on each axle are of the same size or not. They will turn the wheels from lock to lock while the car remains on specialised swivel plates. We will check that the tyres and wheels do not affect the vehicle's structure, or any brake pipes or hoses.

Apart from these two crucial components, our MOT test Cambridge also includes the following:

  • Lights
  • Brakes
  • Mirrors
  • Number plates
  • Windshield wipers
  • Fluids, etc.

Depending on the test result, you will receive any one of the following MOT certificates:

VT20: When your car passes the MOT Cambridge; valid for 1 year.

VT30: When your car fails the MOT test.

If you receive a VT30 (fail) certificate, you need to resolve the issues denoted in the report within 10 working days.
