What Happens If the MOT Finds a Problem?

After your MOT we’ll talk you through any problems found and give you a quote for repairs and retesting.

We carry out repairs onsite to help your HGV pass its test or if it needs a retest. Our workshops also stock a comprehensive range of parts.

Whilst your trucks and trailers are on site take advantage of our other maintenance services.
