Abbey Auto Repairs is a fully approved MOT and service centre in Netley, Southampton. We serve customers in and around Southampton providing quality servicing and approved MOT testing. We work on any make or model of vehicle as well as being able to MOT and service cars, vans and motorbikes too.
We are able to provide Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), previously known as VOSA, approved MOT tests. Our testers are all highly trained, professional and experienced in MOT testing vehicles. The MOT test ensures that your car or van stays legal and safe to drive. We do this by checking components such as your exhaust, tyres and under the bonnet as well as testing safety components such as your horns, mirrors and lights. For an exact breakdown of what’s included in an MOT test, check out the government website for details. We ensure that your car stays safe and we guarantee that your vehicle is in the right hands when you come to us. Upon passing your MOT test, your vehicle will be issued with an MOT test certificate and a new test date for next year.
At Abbey Auto Repairs, we are also able to provide motorcycle MOT tests. We check they meet the legal standards required. A motorbike MOT, however, doesn’t fully check the general mechanical condition of your bike including your engine, clutch and gearbox. What is checked is your tyres, frame, wheel alignment, throttle and drive chain and sprocket. Along with this, your brakes, steering and clutch level are checked as well as the fuel system, seat condition and horn. We have a great team with all the latest training in motorcycle MOT testing so you know your car is in good hands.
If you fail your MOT, we happily prepare a no-obligation quote for any repairs that are needed to get you through the test. We offer your car to be retested within 10 working days of your last MOT. We won’t do the repairs without your approval, of course, but we aim to get you through your MOT as soon as we can and get you back on the roads. Our dedicated MOT bay ensures we can provide MOT testing regularly for our customers.
