We are an approved MOT Test Centre and provide Motorcycle and Scooter MOT's at our workshop for both class 1 and class 2.


If your motorbike MOT has expired you can ride your bike without an MOT only to an approved testing station and only if it is pre-booked.


What does a motorcycle MOT include?

We have listed below a guide to what you need to know about your motorcycle's MOT.

Please note this list is not exhaustive and the MOT test does change on a regular basis.


The motorcycle parts inspected during an MOT are...



Lights

All your lights, brake lights and indicators must work. A red reflector to the rear of your bike is required and you must have a functioning horn.


Fuel

Your bike must not have a fuel leak from anywhere.


Frame and Body

No loose parts or missing engine bolts. Footrests must be fitted and secure and if there is a pillion seat there must be a second set as well. Corrosion must not affect the structure of the motorcycle.


Suspension and Steering

Nothing should prevent smooth rotation of the moving parts. This includes cables and worn head stock or wheel bearings. Forks or rear shocks must not leak and should be firmly attached and filled with the correct amount of oil.




Registration Plate

Must be a standard size and reflective with no damage and must fit securely.


Exhaust

Exhausts must not leak or be too loud, or both.


Brakes

Brakes need to work with a decent amount of brake material on the backing plate. Grooved or worn disks or drums will fail.


Wheel Alignment

Wheels should be aligned, plus your chain and sprockets must be safe and usable.


Tyres and Wheels

Mopeds need clearly visible tread on both tyres. Motorcycles must have at least 1mm. Tyres must have no bulges or cracks in the side wall or cuts over 25mm and everything must be seated correctly.
