Tickenham Garage is a VOSA Approved Testing Station. We complete MOT’s for customers in Tickenham, Nailsea, Clevedon & Portishead & many of the surrounding areas.

An MOT test is on all vehicles over 3 years old, every 12 months. During the test, important parts on your vehicle will be checked to make sure they meet the legal standards.  Our team will then provide the feedback after the test is complete as to whether there is any advisory work required or if the vehicle has failed, what needs to be completed to ensure that it passes at re-test.

You can, of course, watch the test from our viewing area but you are not allowed to interrupt the tester or distract them. You can also sit in our reception area and enjoy a cup of coffee!

I would like to praise you on the service that you gave my daughter when she bought her car in for an MOT recently. As a female, she felt that other garages took advantage of her and had previously over charged. I would like to thank Thomas specifically for talking her through the process and the costs involved. My wife and I will definitely be recommending you to all our friends and family.
