Looking for an MOT in Thatcham? We’re Thatcham’s premier MOT Test station which means we can carry out MOT tests on class 4 (normal vehicles), and class 7 (up to 3500kg) while you wait, or you can leave your vehicle with us.

The MOT is a legal requirement for all vehicles over 3 years old and checks that your vehicle meets the necessary standards to be on the road. Should you be caught without an MOT you could be prosecuted.
Do I need an MOT?
If your vehicle is over three years old then you’ll need a valid MOT by law. Without one, you could face a fine of £1,000. You’ll also not be able to renew your road tax without an MOT.
Not having an MOT could also invalidate your car insurance, as well as risk having points awarded to your driving licence.*
IMPORTANT * Although we’re currently in a period of lockdown the government has NOT given you an MOT “holiday” and if due your vehicle MUST have a current MOT.
When is my MOT due?
Your vehicle requires an annual MOT test. If you’re unsure when yours is due, get in touch and we’ll find out for you. If we’ve carried out your MOT you’ll automatically receive a reminder a month before your next test is due.
Can I book early?
Of course. We would actually recommend getting your MOT Thatcham booked in early, as it’s another thing off your mind. We can MOT your vehicle one calendar month before the due date without you losing time from the certificate.
