Here at Star-Tec Engineering Ltd, we provide a complete range of MOT testing. Whether it’s a Mercedes or a vehicle of any other make or model, our experienced, highly-trained technicians complete the necessary testing to the most demanding standards. Our clients travel to our workshop in Chessington from Epsom, Esher, Leatherhead, Cobham, Kingston and the surrounding Surrey areas because of our reputation for honesty, professionalism and courteousness.
Our personnel share more than 45 years of trade and industry experience, so we understand that the words ‘MOT testing’ aren’t the most popular with drivers. As a legal requirement, however, MOTs play a vital role in maintaining the roadworthiness of vehicles and the overall safety of the roads.
Motorists in Epsom, Esher, Leatherhead, Cobham, Kingston and the wider Surrey area must take their vehicle for MOT testing if it is more than 3 years old, and if their last MOT was undertaken approximately one year ago.
MOT certificates are valid for 12 months. To preserve the anniversary of your certificate, you can book MOT testing up to one calendar month prior to the stated expiration date. By doing so, any time in-hand will be added to the new certificate, preserving the expiration date of the old certificate.
If your MOT testing date is fast approaching, please contact us to book an appointment.
The MOT testing we carry out for motorists in Epsom, Esher, Leatherhead, Cobham, Kingston and the wider Surrey area involves a series of checks on the systems of a vehicle to ensure it meets road safety and emissions standards. MOT testing does not include checks on the engine, clutch or gearbox.
The checks performed by our technicians includes inspection of the following components:
MOT testing takes approximately 45 to 60 minutes to complete. When it comes to an end, we inform our customers whether their vehicle has passed or failed. For our Epsom, Esher, Leatherhead, Cobham and Kingston area clients whose vehicles pass, we present an MOT certificate valid for 12 months (or up to 13 months for those who undergo MOT testing before the expiration date).
MOT certificates are a legal requirement for any driver. Without a valid one, any insurance you may have becomes void, and a new policy can’t be taken out until you have the correct documentation.
For those motorists whose vehicle fails MOT testing, we present a VT30 certificate. This documentation lists the reasons for failure. In order to ensure the safety of our clients, and other road users, in Epsom, Esher, Leatherhead, Cobham, Kingston and the neighbouring Surrey areas, the reasons for failure need to be fixed before the arrangement of a partial retest.
Only when the partial retest has been passed, and an MOT certificate gained, can the vehicle be legally driven again.
For the convenience of our clients, Star-Tec Engineering offers swift repairs on cars that fail MOT testing, minimising inconvenient and frustrating downtime.
For the ongoing safety of roads in Epsom, Esher, Leatherhead, Cobham, Kingston and the entire Surrey area, please ensure that your MOT testing is always carried out promptly and by experienced, qualified professionals.
