R B Autocare – MOT and Servicing

Poole MOT test and service centre

The MOT test

A Ministry of Transport (MOT) test is an annual assessment of a vehicle’s exhaust emissions, road worthiness, and vehicle safety. It is required by law in the UK for vehicles that are three years or older. You can renew your MOT up to one month before it is set to expire. MOT checks and testing can be carried out by garages that have been officially certified by the Driver Vehicle Safety Agency (DVSA), formally known as the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA).

MOT checks include the assessment of each part of a vehicle, including the windscreen, VIN, horn, lighting, wheels and tyres, brakes, mirrors, seats and seat belts, bodywork, suspension, fuel and emissions.

Vehicle servicing – cars and vans

Servicing your car is one of the simplest ways to ensure that it continues to run efficiently. In order for your car to be reliable, it needs to be maintained. A full-service history can also aid in the car’s resale value.

We provide our customers with a standard service which is recommended annually or every 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. We can also offer a more comprehensive service which is advised every 20,000 miles or every two years, whichever comes first. All our servicing includes full brake inspections, tyre inspections and engine oil change. The main goal is to leave it in a condition that is suitable till the next service. The comprehensive service includes wheel alignment and balance checks, fuel change, air filter change, and spark plug changes.
