What does our MOT Check Luton entail?
Our technicians will first check the MOT history of your vehicle and then inspect the following components:
Tyres and wheels
It is mandatory for tyres to feature a tread depth of at least 1.6mm – which is the legal minimum to drive in the UK. Our experts will check the same, along with the tyre’s roadworthiness. We will also inspect your car wheels for signs of damages. Bent wheels can hamper car control significantly.
Steering wheel and column
Professionals at Autosave Ltd will conduct tests on your car’s steering column, steering arm, etc. and ensure they are working optimally. Faults in the steering wheel column can lead to diminished car manoeuvrability and make you vulnerable to on-road mishaps.
The condition of shock absorbers is essential for driving comfort and your car’s ability to deal with different road conditions. Therefore, a thorough inspection of your vehicle’s suspension system is also a part of our MOT Check Luton.
Emission levels are a crucial part of an MOT Test Luton. Our professionals will perform tests and check your car’s exhaust emissions. Failure to meet the legal standards will lead to MOT test failure.
Your car’s braking system needs to work optimally to pass an MOT Luton. Worn out brakes and increased braking distance are dangerous and therefore result in MOT failure.
Headlights and brake lights
Our experts will also check whether your vehicle’s various lights, including headlamps, brake lights, indicators, etc., are functioning correctly. They are also a crucial part of your on-road driving safety.
Seats and seatbelts
Moving on with the checks for MOT in Luton, our experts will then inspect seatbelt condition and functional levels.
Other checks included in our MOT
- General body condition
- Fuel tank
- Wipers and windscreen, and several other vehicle components
MOT certification that we provide
VT20: We issue this certificate when all essential vehicle components meet DVSA regulated standards and conditions for roadworthiness. It is also referred to as an MOT pass certificate.
VT30: If a vehicle does not meet certain road safety standards, we issue a VT30 certificate with all details about the failing components and associated dangers
Classification of issues identified during MOT Luton
The following classifications of issues are based on severity:
- Dangerous (Results in an MOT fail)
- Major (Results in an MOT fail)
- Minor & Advisories (Do not affect the pass or fail of an MOT)
You can opt for our post-MOT checks & repairs in case of an MOT failure. Afterwards we will carry out a partial re-test. If done within 10 working days, this test is free of charge.
Unless your previous MOT certificate is still valid, you will be no longer allowed to drive the vehicle until all repairs have been carried out and the partial re-test has been done.
