MOT’s are a legal requirement for all motorists in the UK and have been put in place to ensure vehicles over 3 years old meet road safety and environmental standards. Some vehicles may need to be tested at 1 years old, such as ambulances and taxis. MOT’s are due on an annual basis and must be performed by an approved MOT test centre. At Oakhill Garage, we are authorised through VOSA to carry out MOT’s at our site, for motorists in Leatherhead, Ashtead, Epsom and the wider Surrey region.


We are part of the Autocare Network and Good Garage schemes and maintain high standards at all times.

What does MOT testing involve?


An MOT test takes around 45-60 minutes to complete and involves a series of important checks to ensure your car is in a safe, roadworthy condition. MOT inspections can be booked in advanced as a scheduled appointment, or offered on the day as a while-you-wait service. The quickest way for motorists from Ashtead, Leatherhead, Epsom or elsewhere in the Surrey areas to request an MOT with us is to complete an online booking, call us on 01372 277 725 or by stopping by our garage to speak with a friendly member of our team.


A number of important vehicle components are tested during an MOT, such as:


  • Body/Vehicle Structure
  • Fuel Systems
  • Seatbelts
  • Steering and Suspension
  • Wipers/Washers
  • Windscreen
  • Electrical Wiring
  • Battery
  • Lights
  • Registration Plates
  • Bonnet
  • Tyres and Wheels
  • Brakes
  • Horn
  • Exhaust System
  • Mirrors and Doors
  • Exhaust Emissions
  • Towbar
  • Boot
  • Seats

We undertake MOT tests on all classes of vehicles, including Class 7 (3.5 Tonne) vehicles. In addition to the usual checks completed in a regular MOT, Class 7 MOT’s include an inspection of the tyres to make sure they are suitable for the extra weight required with a commercial vehicle. Do not hesitate to contact us to find out more about MOT’s on commercial vehicles in and around the Leatherhead area to see how we can help.


Car servicing can be arranged to be carried out at the same time as your MOT test.
