Motorcycle MOT in Bedford

Everyone who uses a Motorcycle on the road must keep it in a roadworthy condition. The MOT test checks that Motorcyclers meet road safety and environmental standards. The first MOT test for a Motorcycle is required when it’s three years old. 

The MOT certificate confirms that at the time of the test, without dismantling it, the Motorcycle met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. It doesn’t mean that the Motorcycle is roadworthy for the length of time the certificate is valid. The MOT certificate is also no guarantee of the general mechanical condition of your Motorcycle. The test doesn’t cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox.

We have designated test bays where we conduct the test, using a range of equipment that meets the required specification for Motorcycle MOT testing. The standard test procedures are laid out in an inspection manual that the test station should make available on request. If your Motorcycle has failed the test, you’ll be given a failure document with reference to this manual. You can watch the test from a designated viewing area but you are not allowed to interrupt the tester while he is working. Book your Motorcycle MoT in Bedford today.

It is your responsibility to ensure your Motorcycle is examined every 12 months. Without a current MOT certificate, you will be unable to ride your motorcycle lawfully on a public highway or renew your road fund licence. Recent computerisation of the MOT Testing system by DVSA means police and mobile camera units can now check remotely to see if your motorcycle has a current MOT.

The penalty for not having a valid MOT certificate could be a fine. Also if the vehicle is involved in an accident you may be asked to produce your certificate. An insurance claim could be affected by the absence of your MOT.

John Worth

Have used this place for years. Always great polite service and very well priced. Also very honest and not trying to up-sell work that doesn't need doing.

Jonathan Miller

Very happy with my visit today, MOT concluded with some action required, and they were happy to help but not in a pushy way. Price was good and certainly no feeling of being ripped off like other places in Bedford. Happy to recommend and visit again.
