Check to see if your local council does MOT's they are the fairest, no repairs carried out.

lmfao!! genuine garages test to the correct standards and don't test to make money out of customers, if your car needs work! it needs work ! if it doesn't ! it doesn't! end of really
best find a garage to trust and at least if it does need work they can correct it for you sensibly with less inconveniance to yourself!

Council mot centres, they do the taxi mot's
they also do private cars, they never do repairs and as already said they cant fail to get word as they don't do repairs, only tests

I wonder how many genuine garages there are nowadays , especially in this present economic climate . Garages are out to make money and they have the monopoly as most folk dont service there own cars and you have to have an MOT . I've heard of some horror storys from friends and on the TV of garages ripping people off.
The last few years at the garage I HAD* been using had items on the advisory paper one year , but not the year after . The items were not part of the MOT and were not changed . They were probably hoping I was just going to say .........go ahead and change the parts amd of course make some money.

* I wont use the garage anymore , as I got 2 new front tyres , but they had taken the rear wheels off by mistake and didn't fasten the wheel nuts tightly [ all 8 of them ]. They then changed the front tyres and left it at that .On taking the car away had I not heard the knocking there would have been one hell of an accident .
I wont trust them anymore .

do u know what u are talking about lol
how can u be sure the garage u go to is genuine? how can u be sure the work they say u need, u actually need?
if i go to a place THAT JUST DOES MOT they wont rip u off with needless repairs as they only do mots they have no reason to fail you because even if your car needs repairs they dont do them so the money wont go to them anyway!

I was worried that the garages would try screw me this year with my MOT to make extra money. This year since moving back home from Uni I got mine done at the local F1 Autocentre for £24.95 and it passed. They were pretty honest and said the front tyres are nearly on the limit and I should get them sorted in the next month but no pressure to buy from them.

Last year however in Birmingham I got my MOT done at the Peugeot garage on Digbeth highstreet for a bargain price of £19.99 and it passed no problems. I guess I was willing to go for the cheapest price being a student but also because I lived near the garage and my car had a service about 3 months earlier from Renault so I knew it would pass and the garage obviously needed the business.
You could always see if they are doing any deals again... http://www.robinsandday.co.uk/birmingham_central

I wouldn't rely on a pure MOT company passing you because that's all they do. Its either going to pass or fail and they have to follow the test guidelines and not turn a blind eye. If they fail you then you'll probably have to get the work done somewhere else and then pay again for it to be retested.
