How Likely Is It That My Car Will Fail The Test?

When it comes to MOT testing, failure rates are generally quite low; in fact, most cars will actually pass their MOT at the first time of asking. There are of course many factors that can influence whether or not a car will pass the MOT, some of these include vehicle age, mileage and of course, condition.

However, by carrying out some simple checks prior to your MOT test you can help to give your car a better chance to pass, please see our guide on what you can do here.

No hidden extras

Your MOT test will be carried out under the strict guidelines that are laid down by the Ministry of Transport and as such will only ever fail due to not conforming to these guidelines; any work that may be required to pass the

MOT will be detailed clearly on a failure notice. Furthermore, for all MOT Middlesbrough requirements we will provide a competitive quotation for the remedial work and we will even re-test your vehicle free of charge once we have carried out the repairs.


Since we are a VOSA authorised testing station, you can be assured that the work will be carried out to the highest standards; we have never and we will never ask you to complete any work that isn’t strictly necessary to get your car to pass the MOT test. It has taken us many years to build our reputation and we will never risk losing it by asking you to have any work done that isn’t actually needed.

If you have taken the opportunity to follow our tips in preparing your car for its MOT test and it fails then at least you can rest in the knowledge that you will have done as much as possible, and it is now the time for our professional technicians to take over.
