At Brook Road Garage in Wimborne Minster, we have an MOT test station to carry out class 4 MOTs. We have the capabilities to MOT test cars, quad bikes, small vans, taxis, ambulances and minibuses. Our MOT tester has years of experience inspecting vehicles and making sure they’re fit to pass. When you book in for an MOT test we’ll follow the strict guidelines set out by the DVSA to make sure that your car is up to a roadworthy standard.
We take an hour to carry out the actual test. It’s a rigorous and extensive inspection which includes safety, mechanical, electrical and general bodywork checks. We’ll look at your seatbelts, steering wheel, windscreen, interior and exterior condition of the vehicle, engine, brakes, exhaust, tyres and gearbox. At the end of the test, we’ll provide you with a pass or fail outcome. If you fail, then don’t panic as we’re able to help get you back on the road. We’ll let you know the reasons that your car failed and will give you a quote for the work that’s required. When we conduct this work, it will bring your car to a pass level so you can receive your MOT certificate. We will always let you know a cost and timescale with a breakdown of the work that is required and will never start work without your approval.
It’s often more convenient for drivers to book their car in for an MOT and service at the same time. You can do this via our online booking system and take advantage of some great rates.
We’re pleased to be able to offer drivers all levels of servicing at Brook Road Garage – interim, full and major. If you’re not sure which service your car needs, then we’ll check on our system and make sure we’re following manufacturer’s specifications.
An interim service is recommended every six months or 6,000 miles. This is ideal for someone driving a lot of miles, or city driving. This service level includes oil, fluid and filter changes, tyre and brake checks.
A full service should be done annually or every 12,000 miles. This is commonly done at the same time as your MOT to make sure your vehicle is roadworthy. This service will allow us to check your battery, gearbox as well as all the checks conducted in an interim service.
A major service is carried out every two years or 24,000 miles. This is the most comprehensive servicing your vehicle can have and we’ll do an in-depth check of your vehicle. A major service includes headlight alignment and spark plug checks.
With all car and van services we carry out, we’ll always test drive your vehicle to make sure it’s in working order and stamp your service log book.
It’s very easy to book your car or van in for a service or MOT test centre with Brook Road Garage. We take appointments over the phone and through our handy online booking system. This system will let you easily check what availability we have to find a time that suits you and will also give you an instant quote for the work.
