MOT

"Be confident with your MOT with M&R"

The MOT is an annual safety check and the purpose of the test is to ensure that your vehicle meets the minimum safety standard set out by the ministry of transport in the road traffic act. 

 

Our dedicated Macclesfield MOT centre is fully certified by the vehicle and operator services agency (VOSA) so you can rest assured that when you book in with M&R Motors, you are sure of a fair test and that standards have been met before a pass certificate is issued. 

 

We can also offer a courtesy MOT reminder letter mailing service, so you won’t forget your MOT next year.
