We are a DVSA-approved Rugby MOT Centre offering prompt vehicular services, including MOT Rugby for different types of vehicles. While abiding by the UK government rules, our technicians carry out all essential checks according to the updated legal guidelines. Also, our facility is adequately equipped with all the advanced equipment, which helps our technicians deliver timely MOT test results.

What is an MOT test?

The MOT test is a mandatory safety check for vehicles over three years old on UK roads. Currently, the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) regulates this test, which prescribes guidelines and rules to check a vehicle's adherence to environmental safety standards and roadworthiness.

The MOT check is mandatory once every year. Failure to do so can result in severe penalties.

Components tested during an MOT Rugby

Listed below are a few of the vital vehicular components that our technicians check in an MOT:

Exhaust emissions

The exhaust emission check ensures the emission levels lie within the government-prescribed limit.

The exhaust system components will be checked separately to ensure all parts are in complete working order.

Seats and Seatbelts

Inspection of seats confirms:

  • Secure fitting of every seat and ensure it's possible to fix seat backs in the upright position
  • Whether or not the driver seat is adjustable
  • No damage to the belts and clips

Load Security

Inspection of the vehicle to ascertain the boot or tailgate closes tight.

Besides these, we also check a car's

  • windscreen and windows
  • mirrors
  • steering
  • horn
  • suspension system
  • braking system
  • doors
  • lights
  • tyres and wheels
  • and many other vehicle components.

Certificates we offer after an MOT Rugby

After an MOT test Rugby, we will issue one of these two certificates based on the test results:

VT20 Certificate

If a car passes an MOT in one go, we issue a so-called VT20 certificate, which validates its roadworthiness for a period of one year.

In case minor faults are found, the vehicle will still pass the test, but they will be listed on a so-called advisory note. These faults should be taken care of as soon as possible.

VT30 Certificate

If your vehicle fails the MOT Rugby, we provide a VT30 certificate, which explains the reasons for the failure in detail.

Categorisation of failures detected in an MOT Check Rugby

The failures detected during an MOT test are classified as:

  • Dangerous
  • Major

In case any Major or Dangerous faults are found during the MOT inspection, it will not pass the MOT Rugby test.

Without a valid MOT certificate, car owners are no longer allowed to drive- or park on public roads.

Car insurance policies are no longer valid.

Dangerous and Major faults must be taken care of immediately.

Here at Binley Woods Service Centre Rugby, we not only carry out MOT tests, but we also offer cost-effective MOT repairs to help resolve all issues affecting the road safety standards of a vehicle in the minimum time possible.

Our experts will explain to you precisely what needs to be done, provide you with a non-obligatory estimate of the costs involved, and answer all the questions you might have. We want to make sure our customers can make an informed decision.

Once all issues are resolved, a partial re-test must be carried out.

Only then a VT20 certificate can be issued.

Please note: In case you are wondering whether your car will pass its next MOT, you can bring it to us for a Pre-MOT Check.
