Cool fictional story bro.
Lol they’ll be running their business at a loss doing that, wonder how they’ll make up the difference?

To be a private hire driver in and around London you have to get 1 Mot for a brand new car. Then 2 a year after first year,that’s every 6 months. The car must be under 5 years old when you first get it plated, and you can use it till it’s 10 years old.
black cabs are the same but can use till they are 15 years old. So I’m not a liar just more informed on this subject.
due to preparing & plating over 100 PCO vehicles for 4/5 cab offices.
A friend of mine who is a mini cab driver.
Took his brand new car, with 3 miles on the clock to a kwikfit for a £19.99 MOT.
It failed.
He walked round the corner to the dealer that supplied the car for a little chat.
After the dealer had a word with kwikfit, It passed.
Very strange.
Cheap Mot = Large repair bills.

Why would you friend take their brand new car for an MOT?! New cars are exempt from an MOT test for the first 3 years.

This is ATS Euromaster - they are a well reputed organisation.

Fictional ?.
What is fictional.
London mini cabs run by the Pco have to have an Mot even new cars. After 1 year old they have to have 2 a year.
My partner and I have used Groupon vouchers for ATS MOTs for the last two years and always passed without issue. This is a bargain as I’ve always paid around £16/£17.
Check out the new rules coming out in May regarding mots. I think you’ll be quite shocked by what you find

but what was included in the chat between your friend and the dealer and then the dealer and kwik fit. i must say i find this very odd that all it took was a chat between those involved to pass the MOT which was initially failed

It was just petty issue, Washer jet pattern not perfect,Rear washer not working, It was just not used before so pipe was empty.
Still wanted to fail the car. Just petty.

Assuming bigwheels is talking about the mini cab itself then it'll be because taxis need to be MOT'd every year from new.

So the car failed because your friend drove a car unfit for the road due to it's maintenance been ignored. He was so poor at making it fit for the road he couldnt even top the washer up to keep the screen clean.
I get the story now.

Jolly good.
ATS will be paying 50% in fees to groupon to advertise this. They are making a loss for every car they MOT at £9.99.

They will make this up by you needing tyres, brake pads and other consumables. I’d rather take my car to a local family run garage personally.
Don't trust ATS after they fitted two cheaper brand tyres to my vehicle , than the ones I had ordered and paid for. Sorted it eventually but had to re order the correct tyres and fit the following week, Manager quite rude and unhelpful, Head office uninterested , overall alot if hassle and inconveince.
For £9.99 you can almost guarantee they'll find something to fail a motor on.
I bought two of these Groupon / ATS vouchers when they were on sale for £19.99 a month or two ago. Was quoted £701 by the Glasgow Garscube Rd branch to replace the exhaust and other suspension work on my 2010 Corsa. I took it away without getting the work done and considered selling it for scrap before a friend persuaded me to take it to another garage for a second opinion. They quoted me £350 for the same work, including the cost of a new MOT. Lesson learned, won't be setting foot in ATS again. I contacted Groupon and they agreed to refund me for the second voucher I refused to use, and gave me some credit for the first voucher after I explained how these charlatans tried to fleece me. Trust me, whatever saving you make on the cut-price MOT will be made back many times over by ATS on your final repair bill.
They filled air con gas last year for my car without checking leak in it. After few weeks of arguments and reports got my money back. Not going to use them ever again.

Strangly it seem almost everyone who posted on HUKD in this thread seemed to shake their heads in disbelief when they read the post about a supposed mates car failing its MOT after a year, then then discovered the idiot had never even checked the water level for his wipers which is a most basic of tasks.

Wow! Where I live I don't think they're allowed out unless at least one headlight is broken and no one knows whether the indicators work or not! I think they get MoTs from their 'uncle's' garage.

I don't think that's actually possible.

Certainly the vast majority of AC 'regas' machines have to go through a pressure test before filling up the system.
£9.99 for an MOT which requires 45mins of labour

common guys, be sensible and pay extra to avoid non needed repairs

Use Google and probably a phone call to look into your local test center to find out. I will share that mine is the standard MOT rate which has saved me alot in repairs
Will be interesting to see what happens my old dears 2014 car has only done 90 miles in the last year after its last MOT its in mint condition serviced it myself - if it fails then it is a ripoff for sure!

So, £54 or more? They'd need to be good then.

Its pretty simple for me, they are 100% impartial they dont do the repairs they have no vested interest in failing you it is not a dodgy MOT from a mate that isnt safe and its not a dodgy MOT from a garage that wants to make money on repairs. Garages selling for less are after the repair work some will do a loss leader but be genuine but many wont.

My 12 year old car was failing every time on minor things (including needing the DVLA to explain the specification to one garage). Since changing it passed every time, on its previous and last MOT it passed with the test center but the technician said it was so close that the brake pads were a hairs length over the minimum and would need doing in maybe a couple weeks... most other garages that would be a fail and get some work in. I did that and a few other bits at home and saved the fee and a bunch more.

Yes it was the dealers fault NOT the fault of ATS Euromaster who's tester was absolutely correct in failing the vehicle.

So it was dealers fault, sounds like MOT tester was just doing his job.

Yes, I understand all of that, it's just a pity it costs well over £50 to get one of these 'proper' MoTs.
