First Port of Call for Car Servicing, MOT Testing & Car Repairs in Isleworth | Chris and Chris Motors

Alongside the car repairs, car servicing and engine diagnostics services that we’ve been providing Isleworth residents for over two and a half decades now, we’re known for our MOT testing. While it might seem hard to imagine how MOT testing can influence the reputation of a car garage like our own, believe us when we say it’s not hard to get wrong. Some garages schedule in appointments that aren’t strictly adhered to, or are slow and lazy in their manner of testing. Others have poor quality facilities that are uncomfortable to wait in, while others can even be unscrupulous and dishonest in their approach – e.g by identifying non-issues as problems, or charging too much.

Chris and Chris Motors ensures its MOT testing is handled to an equally high standard as our car repairs, car servicing and engine diagnostics. Our fully trained and qualified MOT inspectors provide fair, honest and fully transparent feedback on the results of MOT testing. Isleworth motorists that fail the initial test and choose to undergo car repairs at our garage, will be able to receive a free secondary test to confirm that the remedial work has resulted in the green light and certification.

So drop off your vehicle or enjoy a tea or coffee in our comfy waiting area, and ensure that you keep on top of your legal obligations. Driving without an MOT can result in hefty fines and points on your licence.

MOT Testing- What You Need to Know

A number of hands-on and observational tests and inspections make up the MOT testing checklist. These include checks to:

  • Registration Plate
  • Indicators
  • Front Lights
  • Back Lights
  • Washer
  • Wiper
  • Windscreen
  • Horn
  • Seatbelt
  • Seat
  • Fuel System
  • Emission Levels
  • Exhaust Condition
  • Mirrors
  • Doors
  • Wheels
  • Tyres
  • Brakes

Keep in mind that not all automotive issues need to be rectified in order to pass MOT testing. So we may recommend car repairs, car servicing or further engine diagnostics (not subject to the MOT) should we identify a minor issue that, while not urgent, could cause trouble down the line; these are however, totally optional. In regards to essential car repairs that are required before a Pass can be issued, Chris and Chris Motors will never go ahead with car repairs without your permission. You are totally entitled to seek out a secondary quote for such works – though we’re confident that with our competitive approach to pricing, you’ll struggle to find a cheaper car garage in the Isleworth area!

The inspection takes around 45 minutes, and can be booked up to a month before your certification expires. This won’t “knock off” the total time you’re road legal, as the certification can run concurrently for up to 13 months.
