Here at Masters of Durham we have the facilities to test class 4 vehicles (cars).

Frequently asked questions

How long does the test usually take?

An MOT test will typically take 1 hour to complete. You're more welcome to wait in our service reception while the test is carried out or you can leave your vehicle with us and we will contact you once the test is complete.

When is the earliest I can bring my vehicle in for test?

An MOT can be carried out up to one calendar month prior to the expiry date of the existing MOT certificate, while still preserving the anniversary of the expiry date.

What do you need to bring to an MOT Test?

You only need to bring your vehicle to the test. Using the DVSA database, your tester will find your car and discover all the details needed for the MOT.

Can I drive my vehicle without MOT?

You are only allowed to drive your car when its MOT has expired if you've booked an MOT and are driving to the test centre. If stopped by the police you will need to be able to prove when and where your vehicle is booked in, the police WILL contact the test centre to ensure this information is correct. If you are unable to prove you are on your way to a pre-booked test you could face a fine of up to £1500.
