MOT.

I've booked an MOT tomorrow and unusually, it won't be combined with a service this time because it's not due. I was wondering how much of the MOT fee stays with the workshop. Anyone know? I'm guessing the MOT takes about 30 minutes, is that right?

Good Luck

I once booked a bike in for an MOT near Chesterfield.  It was in for over 3 hours.

bike mot test

Shouldn't take long... I've never been at the test station for more than about half an hour.... including having a cuppa and a natter.  Good luck with the test.   :smile


ps....  make sure everything works before you go,.... nothing more annoying than finding the bloody horn doesn't work, or you've got a light out.  :winkie:

MOT.

Thanks. 45 minutes for the MOT while I took a walk along the river. The R1 passed with two new tyres (BT-023 replacing the Pirelli Diablos). My Falco boots gave me blisters.

MOT

The MOT is different here, it's done in a test centre specifically set up for MOT and PSV tests, not in a garage. You book in for a test and must arrive on time or you lose your fee and don't get your vehicle tested. Your vehicle should be clean and roadworthy to get your cert, no work is carried out on the vehicle at the centre, just an examination. A bike usually takes no longer than about 5-10 minutes, a car takes about 20 minutes.


You don't get a cup of tea :upset:

No tea?

Here, the test centres are just that.  Test Centres.  (No work carried out)

Pay, join the queue, yours gets done in turn.

But - they do sell beer in the vending machines :shock::wacko:
