MOT Peterborough

Looking for a reliable MOT service in Peterborough?

When you own a vehicle, it is your responsibility to make sure that you have a valid MOT certificate each year. An MOT certificate shows that your vehicle safe to drive on UK roads, and involves checking that lights, mirrors, seatbelts and other areas are in good condition.

Here at FRM Automotive Ltd, we conduct MOTs and are accredited by a Government chosen Vehicle Operator Services Agency (VOSA). We can carry out MOT class 4 (cars, motor home) Class V (minibus) and Class VII (light vehicles over 3000Kg). Class V (minibus) is used for hire and reward requires an MOT after 1 year. All our mechanics are fully trained and have the very latest diagnostic equipment.

For vehicles over 3 years – MOT Peterborough

Every vehicle over the age of three years from the date of registration must have a valid MOT every year by law, to ensure your vehicle is roadworthy and in safe working order. If your vehicle needs an MOT we can help.

We are an independent garage that can service and maintain new Class 4, 5 and 7s under warranty and this will not affect manufacturers warranties given on vehicles. For more information about our Class, 4, 5 and 7 MOT testing in Peterborough, please visit our dedicated page.
