Whether you're a resident or a business with a fleet of vehicles, our professional and expert team can provide independent and transparent MOTs.
By using the Southampton City Council MOT testing service you can have peace of mind that you'll receive a truly fair and unbiased test. That is our promise.
We have no vested interest in failing vehicles because we don't carry out repairs in our workshop. Once you've had your impartial MOT results, you can then visit another garage safe in the knowledge that any repairs listed are truly necessary. We can also provide you with a prompt failure re-test.
We bring our wealth of knowledge and experience from the work we carry out on the council's fleet of over 400 vehicles. The range of vehicles we can accomodate includes: Class 4, Class 5 and Class 7 vehicles; cars, minibuses and light commercial vehicles.
There is a comfortable waiting area in main reception with TV screens, which allow you to watch your MOT service in action.
To book an MOT please call us on 023 8083 4363.
Tests are conducted Monday to Thursday 8am to 3pm, and Friday 8am to 2pm.
Payment for the test can be by credit or debit card, cheque or cash.
