If you have an impending MOT check in Peterhead, bring your car to our service station. West Road Customs is one of the most trusted MOT test centres for class 4 vehicles in this region.

For all vehicles above 3 years of age, the MOT is a mandatory test that a car owner needs to take for proving its roadworthiness. It is conducted under the guidelines provided by the DVSA. The test checks various aspects of a car to ascertain that they are in their proper working conditions, and therefore, not a threat to anyone on the road.

Without an MOT certificate, your car will be deemed illegal on the British roads. You’ll be liable to fines and penalty points against your license.

MOT checkpoints

We have a team of experienced technicians who are well-versed in the ins and outs of this test and perform it accordingly. There are two types of MOT that we perform.

Class 4 MOT for passenger cars and goods vehicles up to 3,000kg in gross weight.

So, if you are looking for your next MOT test destination, we are the perfect place to come to. Although the MOT check in Peterhead is a comprehensive test, there are a few areas which our technicians pay particular attention to. These parts are the reason for almost half the MOT failures in the UK.

As a car owner, you should be aware of these and take proper care of them before coming in for your test to increase your chances of clearing the test at the first attempt.

Tyres

We check the tread depth, which should be above 1.6 mm. There shouldn’t be any physical damage to the tyre body. Also, complying with the new rules that came into effect in 2018, tyres should be properly inflated.

Lights

We check all the lights in your vehicle, including tail lights, VIN lights and dashboard lights.

Driver’s view of the road

There shouldn’t be any cracks on the windshield or any mirrors, especially on the driver’s side.

Brakes, suspension and battery

We also check the condition of all these essential parts for any potential malfunction.

How much will it cost?

The exact amount depends on a lot of variables including the make and model of your car. However, the DVSA has set the maximum limit that any garage, including ours, can charge for an MOT in Peterhead. The number stands at £54.85 for Class 4 MOT. Our price slabs are considerably lesser than the maximum amount.
