JT Autocare performs Class IV MOT testing from dedicated premises in Maidenhead. MOT garages and testing centres have to gain approval from the DVSA (Driver Vehicle and Standards Agency), a regulatory trade and industry body that over sees MOT testing across multiple classes and categories. The first thing a company like our own needs to join the other 23,000 MOT garages in the UK is, of course, suitable premises.
Our workshop in Maidenhead meets the criteria specified by the DVSA and, like all MOT garages are obliged to do, we also have approved equipment for the Class IV category and our own authorised examiners. An authorised examiner (AE) is often considered to be an individual, but can also be a business partnership or a company.
Vehicle owners in Maidenhead with cars aged three years or over have a mandatory obligation to use MOT garages for annual testing. The MOT test is a series of checks relating to vehicle safety, roadworthiness and emission standards. Vehicles must comply with all elements contained within the checklist to qualify for the MOT pass certificate.
Should any vehicle fail an inspection, the owner is responsible for having repairs undertaken. Most motorists leave their cars at the MOT garages they have used for inspections because they automatically qualify for a free retest. Our own workshop in Maidenhead performs car repairs and provides a cost-saving free retesting service.
Another specification for MOT garages is to have computer equipment and an internet connection in place. This allows our own Maidenhead workshop to connect to a nationwide database which stores MOT testing records. This particular facility alerts us to forthcoming test dates for previous customers, which we forward to them for consideration.
Like all MOT garages in Maidenhead and the UK, JT Autocare performs annual inspections up to one calendar month before the scheduled test date. This gives Berkshire motorists an opportunity to have 13 full months of MOT certification, and helps our company to retain a satisfied customer base which uses us for all of the testing and inspection requirements.
