Renault MOT


​MOT testing​

The annual MOT test is a legal requirement for all vehicles aged three years and older. Failing to hold a valid MOT certificate is both a crime and will invalidate your insurance, meaning you should always ensure that your vehicle is fully up-to-date and know when your next test is due. You can check the expiry of your current MOT certificate by visiting https://www.gov.uk/check-mot-status today. 

What does the MOT test check?

The MOT test takes approximately an hour to complete and is designed to check the overall roadworthiness of your vehicle. Working to a government approved checklist, a member of our team will inspect a host of aspects of your vehicle, including the emissions, lights, oil levels, wiper blades, brakes, and more. Should any component be found to compromise the roadworthiness of your vehicle, your car will fail the test and the issue will need to be remedied prior to a retest.<PR>

At Bennett Renault, we’re delighted to be able to offer a retest policy that makes securing a certificate as easy as possible. If your vehicle fails a test and you leave it with us for any necessary repairs, your model will be retested with no additional fee to be paid. In addition, if you decide to leave Bennett Renault for repairs but return within ten days of the initial failure, you will only be required to take a partial retest and face a smaller fee.<PR>

When to book my car for an MOT?

An annual MOT check is a mandatory test for all cars over 3 years old. Once your car reaches 3 years old it will require its first test. After that, an MOT will be required every 12 months.

What will happen during the MOT?

On the day, our team of trained Renault experts will inspect the bodywork, doors and mirrors, lights and horn, brakes, steering and suspension, tyres and wheels, windscreen, wipers and washer bottle, exhaust fuel and emissions, seats and seatbelts, vehicle identification number, and registration plate of your vehicle.

If your vehicle fails it's MOT test and is left at our dealer to be repaired, there will be no additional fee for a retest. If your vehicle is removed from our Bennett Motor Group Renault dealer for repair and is returned for an MOT retest within 10 working days following the day of the initial failure, only a partial retest is needed and a partial retest fee may be charged.
