MOT Test Blackpool

Book your MOT at our Testing Station in Blackpool

By law ALL UK cars 3 years and older require a Valid MOT Test Certificate.

An MOT is a standard annual test to make sure that your car meets all the legal requirements for road use as set by The Vehicle Inspectorate.

MOT tests can be carried out up to one month before your MOT Certificate expiry date. On passing the MOT you will receive a certificate valid from the date of expiry of your existing MOT which will last for 1 year. Should your vehicle fail the MOT test, as a fully equipped service and repair centre we can undertake whatever is necessary to get your car back on the road, without any additional re-test fee.

Fast Track Motors are also a licensed Class 4 MOT testing centre, which enables us to test light commercial vehicles such as vans and taxis fleets. Call for details and a great price!
