Your local council has a place which does all the MOTs for its scores of vehicles. Because they are subject to the same requirements as Fred's MOTs, they have to be accessible to the public.

 

The key is that they only do MOTs and therefore aren't interested in repairs. Funnily and spookily enough, the pass rate at these places is much much better than your average garage. Go figure, as the Americans say.

That is a really useful tip. Thanks

It may be worth checking with your local bus depot or ambulance station too, especially if you drive a large van or wagon. Locally, both of these offer an MOT (but no repair) service.

I only mouth my opinion, please look elsewhere for sensible advice! :)

Quick question, If you take you car to a council place and it fails, whose to say the garage you take it too wont fail it on something else on the re-test after doing the work or do the councils offer a free re-test
