MOT Pulborough Testing Centres
Any car older than three years from the date of registration needs an MOT test. From there, it must be retested every year to ensure the vehicle is roadworthy. Our MOT Pulborough testing centre is DVSA-approved and can help with your MOT test, car services, tyres and free safety checks among others.
While an MOT is a legal requirement, a car service is not but the one is impossible without the other. If your car fails the MOT, you need to book a service to address the issues to ensure that your car is roadworthy and not a risk to you, your family and other road users.

Failed MOTs And Car Servicing
If your car fails an MOT, the garage or testing station will inform you of the necessary repairs. From there, you have several options according to the MOT failure rules.
First, you can leave your car with the garage and ask them to carry out the repairs. The time everything takes will depend on how many faults they identified and severity of each. In some cases the car may be repaired and re-tested later the same day.
The vehicle can also have a partial retest that will cover only the faults that have been repaired. More serious repairs may take longer but if they are carried out within 10 days of the original MOT, a partial retest is fine. You could get a retest at a different garage but you will likely have to pay in full for the second test.

Which Tyres Are Right For My Car?
Considering the number of tyre brands on the market today, it can be challenging to find the right ones for your car. Some important factors to keep in mind when buying tyres include tyre size, weight requirements, how often you will drive and the type of conditions. We recommend buying tyres according to your personal needs and the time of year.
Remember, good quality tyres will last longer and help improve fuel efficiency especially when coupled with good driving habits. Drivers often forget how important tyres are and to refresh your memory, here are FOUR vital functions:
- Providing grip for braking and acceleration
- Responsible for steering and directional control
- Supporting the weight of the vehicle, its occupants and any additional loads
- Act as shock absorbers for road vibrations

What Our Customers Say About Elite Garages Pulborough
Excellent, professional service. Very pleased, thank you – Paul Arundale
I have had to deal with this branch on several occasions due to Potholes and broken tyres. The manager and his staff have always done everything they can to get me back onto the road quickly. This car has no spare wheel nor space to put one. I am truly grateful to them for their polite and helpful service. I would not consider going anywhere else for my tyre requirements – Frank Illston
Excellent service, from my first telephone conversation to the tyres being fitted, quick and economical service – Duncan McKenzie
Had my first MOT with Elite at the weekend, and they were extremely friendly, efficient and helpful. Highly recommended – Jacqueline Mansfield
