Further to the Oil change from £18.00 thread

Thought Id add in this one, for those that want a cheaper MOT and dont want to go to Halfords and dont have easy access to a council test centre (nearest one to me is miles from home) yet I have 2 nationals and 3 halfords within 4 miles.

There will be haters and if you have a car in poor condition you may get advisorys, there may be some branches who cheat
but having earned my trust with their oil change, I will be using them for my MOT when its due next month

Is meant to be for Google + account holders but enter the code and it works

Motor trader here, do more mot's then have hot dinners - What he said is spot on, trust me you would rather pay £50 and have a more honest person do your mot, its always testers discression on a lot of things, bushes, suspension components etc, they can find fault and create work for them on anything believe me...


Used deals like this at national in the past with no real problem. Anyone got any evidence of the allegations?

maybe the mods should take care that slanderous comments aren't made on this thread (or libellous or whatever it is...)

Always use a trusted and recommended MOT tester. Some years ago, knowing my car was in excellent condition, having recently been serviced and checked by an experienced mechanic, I thought I'd take advantage of a very cheap offer advertised by a garage I spotted whilst driving. I reasoned there was no point in paying double for the certificate as the car was fine. They found lots of expensive work "needed" doing, including welding. I took the car to a trusted garage who did the 'necessary' work. They told me they could see nothing that needed welding and showed me the underside of the car which was absolutely fine. Always go by personal recommendation to an MOT tester with a good reputation.

so you knew it was "in excellent condition" had had it serviced and checked and they missed necessary mot work not telling you of any advisorys ?

id be more inclined not to be happy with the first lot for not telling me at that point...

and you took it to a different place again to get the work done, not your experienced mechanic...

Fairest and safest place for an MOT is a local council test centre.

Yes, use a council run MOT centre. They've no vested interest to fail you.

The following guide includes a full list of over 100 UK council test centres. Also helps if you click on the region you live in on the map included in the guide as this appears to pull up more test centres.

'Half price' MOTs available in thousands of places. Nothing special here!

I can't get my head round why people still use these kind of garages for MOTs when there are better more honest options. Fools and their money.

All you have to ask yourself is why would they want to lose money in carrying out an mot at below cost?

No such thing as a free lunch.

because they hope to build customer base for other work when it is needed ?

Ive had an oil change from them, ill use them for my mot, ill have another oil change from them in 6k miles and recommend them to others to do the same
thats is why

I have no doubt my car will pass without advisor's... and its 9 years old

It'll probably differ depending on which one you go to. Some maybe fine others will con you, imo its too much of a risk to take. Best to stick with local recommended garages
