At R&G Autocare, we carry out MOT testing for a sizeable number of Lancing and surrounding areas and West Sussex motorists every year. Our company also provides MOT repairs and free MOT retesting if a vehicle has been unfortunate enough to have failed the inspection first time around. We believe our garage should always provide genuine value-for-money with all services, including MOT rests. R&G Autocare can test cars or vans while you wait.
Your vehicle could have failed the MOT for any number of reasons, from your vehicle identification number (VIN) being incorrect to the steering and suspension being faulty. Common issues for MOT failure also include damaged wipers and washer bottles, or seatbelts not working properly. Emissions are a common factor with older vehicles.
We carry out a no-fuss service to highlight any issues and, with your approval, we can carry out any MOT repairs needed to help you pass the test. Our workshop is based in Lancing and surrounding areas, which makes it easily accessible from most locations in the surrounding West Sussex area. Details on how to call us can be found on the ‘Contact Us’ page of this website.
Our inspectors have many decades of combined MOT experience and we carry out all tests in accordance with Ministry of Transport guidelines. MOT tests can be carried out up to a month before they are due. Road users in Lancing and surrounding areas and West Sussex should always be aware that without a valid MOT, their road tax and insurance could be rendered invalid.
The history of the MOT goes back to 1960 when the Ministry of Transport brought in the test to keep the increasing amount of cars on the road safe and legal. Since those early days when you only needed to submit your vehicle once every ten years, inspection periods have shortened significantly. MOT tests have been administered every 12 months since 1983.
We are a DVSA approved testing centre and our garage in Lancing and surrounding areas neighbours Worthing and Shoreham-by-Sea. Our workshop has an extensively equipped MOT testing area fitted with the latest technology, including impressive computerised equipment that links us to a nationwide database so we can send you out prompt annual reminders.
We understand that many of our Lancing and surrounding areas customers will feel frustrated if their car fails the MOT test. R&G Autocare are on hand to provide MOT repairs under such circumstances. On most vehicles, we can undertake MOT repairs and any related work on the same day but if the work is more extensive, we’ll book you in at the earliest possible opportunity.
MOT repairs are provided at competitive prices and our rates are amongst the best to be found in and around the Lancing and surrounding areas and West Sussex areas. R&G Autocare assist customers by sending out MOT reminders well in advance of a forthcoming MOT test. This means you’ll never end up driving your vehicle unknowingly without a full and valid MOT certificate.
