Great place with friendly staff and great customer service. The waiting area is the best I’ve seen anywhere. Some of the expensive car dealerships I’ve been too could learn a lot from these guys. I will arrange all my service needs with these guys from now on.

Do I need an MOT?

Every motorcycle or scooter requires an annual MOT once it is 3 years old. The MOT stands for Ministry of Transport. You can follow this link to check to see if you need an MOT by entering your registration number.

The motorcycle MOT carries out safety checks on your motorcycle or scooter to ensure it is roadworthy, safe to use and not a danger to other road users. An MOT does not check any servicing requirements, it is solely to check the safety & legal requirements test to ensure the safety of the motorcycle or scooter.

What does the mOT check?

The motorcycle MOT checks the roadworthiness of your motorcycle or scooter. The tester will check your headlights brakelights and indicators. Your front and rear wheel and steering bearings, your number plate and exhaust legality, your tyre and wheel condition, brake pad condition, suspension health and more.

Common Motorcycle MOT Failures

common-motorcycle-mot-failures

The most common reasons for a motorcycle or scooter to fail their MOT are listed in the chart above.

The most common reason is Lighting and Signalling, where a misaligned headlight or a blown bulb will cause a failure.

Brakes are the next most common reason, with worn pads being the main culprit but poorly performing brakes, a worn disc or a cracked disc will also fail.

Steering and Suspension is the next most common reason for failure. This can be worn wheel bearings or head race bearings, leaking dampers or not enough – or too much – movement in other areas.

Another common failure is for Wheels and Tyres. This can be for obvious things like worn tyres but also cracked or corroded rims. A bike can also fail if tyres are fitted with the wrong speed rating or if there is evidence the tyre is rubbing on another component which can happen when fitting wider tyres.

Other areas a bike might fail on include an illegal number plate or non-road legal exhaust, a badly worn drive system, like a worn chain or sprockets and a multitude of other areas, all covered in our pre-MOT healthcheck.
