I can't believe some of the paranoia on this thread it's beyond tin foil hat. I had my MOT done at ATS using this offer and I have one advisory that my rear fog light bulb was slightly pink. Oddly no other repair bills, because I look after and maintain my car. Who'd have thought... No one particularly likes spending money on a constantly depreciating asset... if you don't like it .... there's plenty of busses. Some of the MOT is left to individual judgement as there are no specifics set, this can lead to some testers saying it's ok and some not eg for corrosion, excessive corrosion will see you fail an MOT but there are no specifics on what excessive looks like. There is no guarantee that your council MOT man isn't having a bad day and just fails your car..... because Monday. It's not the testers responsibility to fix the bits on your car during the test it's your responsibility to bring it to the tester in an order that you are confident it will pass. If your car fails and you think it's wrong you're welcome to challenge it with the tester. But I fear half of you on here couldn't tell the difference between a brake pad and a custard cream. As for whoever was complaining about fleet costs, sorry but no one on a fleet basis will have a 'repair' done on their car it will always be a replacement like for like genuine part, which aren't cheap.Why risk it? if you're dishing out company cars it's not to Sandra who puts the labels on your chicken sandwich. it's for people who have a higher cost benefit to the business. If your sales directors exhaust falls off it's not worth the business risk to say don't replace it stick a weld on it and hope it holds because the first person who will be getting it in the neck is the fleet coordinator for cheaping out on repairs vs your sales director not selling stuff. It's best practice and covers everyones ass.
It's a set process, motorcycles are the same. If it gets processed too quickly then it gets flagged as dodgy practice. I find it impossible to believe that you can inspect a car correctly in 15 mins. here's the structure: https://www.mot-testing.service.gov.uk/documents/manuals/m4i00000101.htm
MOT25 and the other code mentioned in here to get it for 7.49 dont seem to be working anymore, but hello15 works to bring it to 8.49
What a bunch of ridiculous comments, if you've never experienced ATS, stop damaging this community of legitimate reviewers. If you've got something legitimate to say, say it, if not, keep quiet and let experienced ATS users comment on this post. My own experience with ATS, my car failed on Co2 test, and they told me to go blast it on the M road, and bring it back so they can hook up the car and re-test Co2 when the car's hot, and it passed. Friendly team and no probs.
