Car MOT Service

MOTAt Bicester Tyre and Exhausts we provide an independent VOSA approved vehicle MOT testing environment for both cars and vans.

If your car is more than 3 years old it is a legal requirement that it passes an MOT test once per year to ensure that it meets at least the minimum road safety and environmental standards.
