The MOT looks at some important items on your car to see that they meet key legal requirements at the time of test. British law stipulates that all vehicles over 3 years old that are driven or kept on a public highway have one. Here at Forest Gate we aim to make this essential test as cheap, easy and hassle free for you as possible.


Standard Vehicle MOT’s (Class 4) have a RRP of £54.80, but here at Forest Gate we don’t want you to pay that, we have created some very special internet special offers (for retail customers only) that are only available by calling 01536 400111 .
