MD Racing are certified to carry out MOTs on-site. We can also take bookings at short notice if required. Just give us a ring and we'll book you into the next available motorcycle MOT slot.
As VOSA are keen to point out, the MOT test does not cover the condition or serviceability of your motorbike's engine, clutch or gearbox. So if your motorbike is due a scheduled service (beit it an annual or major motorcycle service), or if you believe you may have a problem with your bike, we can carry out any servicing or diagnosis when you're booked in for an MOT. Saves you a return visit.
If it makes it easier, you can leave your motorbike with us at the garage all day whilst you head off to work. Alternatively, we can book your MOT for a particular time slot and do it while you wait - and flick through a few of our bike mags to find out what your next pride and joy might be!
We only charge £29.65 for a motorcycle MOT. The time slots start from 8.30am and run every half an hour until 5.30pm (weekdays) or 12.30pm (Saturdays).
Why not run through our handy motorcycle MOT checklist below so you know what we, as the MOT tester, will be checking.
There are some vitally important components to your motorcycle that an MOT tester needs to check in order to ensure they meet minimum legal requirements at the time of the MOT test. This ensures your bike is safe to ride to protect not only yourself, but all of the other road users. If you're worried about anything on your motorbike in particular, let us know before the MOT test. We will be able to tell you VOSA's guidance on the issue and / or apply a safe fix to your motorbike so you can ride away with peace of mind.
