Your Test & Us

At Birdwell MOT Centre we pride ourselves on being a busy MOT (only) test station. Open 6 days per week, we charge a fixed £35 fee for all tests, whether you are after a small hatchback car test or a 3.5T (class VII) van MOT. The details on the right show how, and why we are popular. Why not give us a try next time you need your MOT test Barnsley, Sheffield, Rotherham?

As is to be expected, we test your vehicle to the DVSA guidelines indiciated in the relevant "MOT Inspection Manual". Your test will ensure your vehicle meets the legal standards and that it is roadworthy and road-legal.

The test does not check the general mechanical condition of the vehicle incuding, but not limited to, the engine, clutch, gearbox or any electrical components or on-board computers. If you need these checking, or need a service, you will need to contact a suitably qualified mechanic.

The diagram below contains an overview of what is included in the test. However, if you want the full information (as provided by DVSA), please click on the image (below) to visit the gov.uk website.
