Car Repairs and MOT Tests in Isleworth
Chris and Chris Motors Ltd have been providing MOT tests for Isleworth motorists since 1994. Our garage has invested heavily into the latest MOT testing equipment. We are a modern garage with ultra-modern facilities and equipment which undertakes MOT inspections from Monday through to Friday and on Saturdays by arrangement.
Road users from Isleworth can also use our garage for mechanical car repairs, MOT repairs, accident repairs and a full range of professional services supplied by skilled technicians.
Every MOT inspector on our team undergoes frequent training to ensure they are up to speed with current safety, roadworthiness and emission standards. Your vehicle must meet or exceed these standards to pass MOT tests. The inspection itself is applicable to any vehicles over three years old. MOT tests takes around 45 minutes to complete.
If you’ve travelled to see us from Isleworth and want to wait with your vehicle while it’s being tested, we have a comfortable MOT viewing area you are welcome to use.
If a vehicle meets the requirements, a pass certificate is issued. If it doesn’t, our garage has the facilities to carry out car repairs – often on the same day as the MOT inspection. Free secondary MOT tests can be provided within a 14 day period. We never carry out car repairs until we’ve been given the green light by vehicles owners in Isleworth.
Our garage can undertake MOT tests up to a month in advance of the current expiry date.
MOT Testing | Understanding the Basics
MOT tests are performed using a series of physical and observational checks. These checks determine whether your vehicle will pass or fail the inspection. There are times when our garage may notice something during MOT tests that could become an issue at a later date. We recommend that Isleworth motorists leave their vehicles with us for car repairs.
We’ll already have a good idea of what needs to be done and if we gain your approval quickly, we can get any parts you need ordered. In many cases. Car repairs can be completed on the same day an Isleworth customer failed the MOT inspection.
Below, we’ve listed some of the elements which are checked in MOT tests. You may wish to inspect these elements yourself before you leave your vehicle at our garage.
- VIN and Registration Plate
- Indicators, Front and Back Lights
- Washer, Wiper and Windscreen
- Horn, Seat and Seatbelt
- Fuel System, Exhaust and Emissions
- Doors and Mirrors
- Wheels, Brakes and Tyres
