    How do I get an MOT repair?

    Your first step is to find a mechanic or car garage that you can rely on to carry out any repairs to a high standard, and on time.

    To do this, a good first port of call is your friends and family. Chances are, lots of them will already have dealt with some of the local garages, and so they can give you recommendations on which to approach.

    Failing this, take a look online. When looking at each garage, keep an eye on their:

    • History
    • Customer ratings
    • Testimonials
    • Qualifications
    • Insurance

    Once you’ve found the perfect Essex mechanic for you, give them a call and let them know what you need. They’ll be able to tell you from there when you’ll need to bring your car in, how long the repair will take, and probably how much it will cost too.

    Why do I need to get an MOT repair?

    Put simply, you’ll need to carry out any necessary MOT repairs so that you can pass your cars MOT. This is important, as if your car fails its MOT, you won’t be able to drive it out on the road.
    MOT’s are carried out in order to ensure as much as possible that the cars on the road are safe to drive, and aren’t likely to cause an accident due to a mechanical failure.
    That’s why it’s vital you pass your MOT test if you want to use your car, and carrying out MOT repairs gives you the best chance of doing this.


    Can I carry out repairs myself?

    Legally yes, you can. However, having a professional mechanic carry out the repairs for you means that you’re much less likely to fail your MOT test. Plus, many insurances or warranties can be voided if you incorrectly repair your car yourself.

    How much do MOT repairs cost?

    This will depend on the type of repairs you need doing. Small jobs such as replacing a worn down tyre could cost you as little as £20, whereas bigger, more complicated jobs could be in the hundreds of pounds, if not thousands. Speak to your mechanic before any repairs are done and they should be able to give you an idea about cost.
