MOT

ALS Motor Group offer Class 4 & 7 MOT testing from our workshop on Kingstown Industrial Estate in Carlisle, as a DVSA-approved testing station.

An MOT test is a legally required, annual, test of a vehicle’s roadworthiness, safety, and exhaust emissions. Almost all vehicles in the UK which use public roads and are over 3 years old must have a valid MOT test certificate. Vehicles that do not need an MOT are those under 3 years old, goods vehicles powered by electricity and registered before 1st March 2015, tractors, and some classic vehicles (find exemptions here).

ALS Motor Group is well-known in the Carlisle for our MOT testing capability and expertise, including speedy, cost-effective, repair of any issues which cause an MOT fail. MOT tests cover a wide range of vehicle features, including brakes, lights, tyres, steering, and even your registration plate. Something as simple as a dead headlight bulb will result in an MOT fail, but you can rest assured that the team at ALS Motor Group will work hard to ensure your car, van, or motorhome, passes its MOT test with flying colours.
