Book MOT Stoke On Trent with DC Vehicle Repairs

MOT is a mandatory safety test regulated by DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) that all vehicles more than 3 years old must undergo every year. It is essential to opt for an MOT check to determine whether your car meets all driving safety and environmental standards. Driving a vehicle with an expired MOT certificate (except for travelling to the MOT centre) can attract multiple legal troubles and heavy fines.

Our MOT checklist

Our MOT testers carefully follow the complete guidelines set by the DVSA when conducting MOT in Stoke on Trent. Would you like to know which components of your vehicles we will inspect? See below:

Exhaust system

All parts related to exhaust and emission are tested to know whether they meet road safety and environmental standards. Therefore, we examine all the notable parts of your vehicle’s exhaust system, such as the oxygen sensor, exhaust pipes, etc.

Tyres and wheels

Tyres need to function properly and be kept in good health for safe driving, so tyre and wheel alignment are tested.

Suspension system

The suspension system should always be in good condition because our safety depends a lot on it. We inspect all parts associated with the suspension system to find out if there is a problem with any of your cars.

In addition to the above details, our MOT Test Stock on Trent also includes the following inspections:

  • Seatbelts
  • Windscreen
  • Braking system
  • Internal and external lights
  • Body structure

Once the checks are complete, our team will determine whether your car has passed the test and issue an MOT certificate accordingly. If it passes the test, we will provide the VT20 certificate. This certificate will validate the roadworthiness of your car for one year. However, if it fails the test, we issue a VT30 certificate. Our professionals will clearly explain the reasons and suggest a future course of action. You can opt for post-MOT repairs from our facility, after which we will conduct a partial re-test at a reduced charge. However, you need to take the re-test within 10 working days of the actual MOT date.

Types of issues

In case of MOT failure, the VT30 certificate enlists all the issues found in your vehicle. These issues are of the following types:


Issues that fall under the dangerous category will lead to MOT failure. These issues can massively impact your vehicle’s engine performance and compromise driving safety and comfort.
