Book Your MOT At Elite Garages Brighton

Annual MOTs are legally required on most vehicles that are older than three years. All vehicles using public roads must be roadworthy and our MOT Brighton testing centre can help you achieve that.

While car owners complain about doing an MOT every year, it forms an integral part of vehicle and road safety. In fact, MOTs have been around since 1960 when it was first introduced. The reasoning behind it wasn’t random but rather an attempt to reduce the number of car accidents across Britain.

Many of these accidents were a direct result of owners not maintaining their cars properly. To increase road safety, it was declared that all cars had to undergo an annual mandatory test. Examiners would inspect the interior and exterior of the vehicle to identify any potential faults that could lead to a dangerous system failure.

What Does An MOT Test Include?

It’s not a myth that an unroadworthy is extremely dangerous as there are several things that could go wrong. Faulty components like worn tyres, brakes or steering can cause serious problems. An MOT is the best way to ensure that you, your passengers and other road users remain safe. Here are some of the most common components that examiners check during the test at our MOT Brighton centre.

  • Headlights and Indicators
  • Brake Lights
  • Number Plate
  • Wheels and Tyres
  • Windscreen/Wipers/Wash level
  • Fuel and Engine Levels
  • Doors
  • Vehicle Structure
  • Seats and Seatbelts
  • Horn
  • Warning Lights
  • Mirrors
  • Suspension
  • Exhaust System

The MOT Brighton testing centre has all the latest equipment as well as DVSA-approved examiners. Remember, an MOT is only a visual check and does not include a car service. Examiners will inspect your vehicle for faults and only make suggestions or recommendations on any required repairs. It is up to you to book a service which you can conveniently do at Elite Garages Brighton.

What Happens If I Fail My MOT?

Upon completion of the MOT test, you will either receive a certificate for a Pass or Fail. Pass and our examiners will give you a VT20 MOT certificate and if you fail, we will offer advice on the faults and indicate any repair work.

We can MOT class 4 vehicles which includes cars, small commercial vehicles and taxis. If you fail your test, not to worry as MOT Brighton offers FREE retesting within 10 working days. Speaking of repairs, we will never carry out any work without your prior consent.

What Customers Say About Our MOT Brighton Centre

Very impressed by the service I had. We were going on holiday the next day, I dropped in just to check a minor clicking noise, it turned out the suspension was seriously damaged. The guys at Elite pulled out all stops to fix the problem by the end of the day so we could go on holiday as planned. It was touch and go if they could do this- we’re really grateful that they put 100% in to help us. Thank you!


I took my Audi A3 in on Friday as my main beam bulb had blown. The bulb was replaced and I was on my way in less than five minutes. Very happy. I have been to this garage a couple of times and have always been happy with the service. The men who work there are also friendly and professional. Highly recommend. 10/10


MOT Brighton review

No complaints. I called in the morning with a slow puncture. An appointment was organised for the afternoon. It was repaired quickly and wasn’t expensive. Very friendly and helpful fitter. I’ll be going back for some new tyres soon!


MOT Brighton

Used them recently for a service and MOT on our ordinary hatchback. Good communication, included me in the decision-making process where appropriate, prices seem reasonable, work was all done in a very timely manner and they were very nice. I’ll be back next year.


MOT Brighton review

Definitely 5* I called up today as my car started misfiring. Most garages shut early on a Saturday but they’re open until 4. He said he could look at it as soon as I got there my car was fixed within an hour. And the cost I was surprised I thought it would be more but I’m very impressed xx
