"Be confident with your MOT whit M&R"

If your vehicle is 3 years old or more then you are required by law to have an MOT.

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 for an MOT with M&R Motors you are sure of a fair test and that the satisfactory standards have been met before a pass certificate is issued. We offer a courtesy MOT reminder letter mailing service so you won’t forget your MOT next year.
