Garage Services, MOT Testing - Guildford, Surrey

Sutton Green Garage - MOT

We utilise modern technology for both the Servicing and our MOT testing. We also have a MOT viewing area available should you wish to view your vehicle being tested - please just ask when you book your MOT.


If you have a car that is more than 3 years old it will need an MOT test each year to ensure that it meets at least the minimum road safety and environmental standards. Your vehicles MOT may be carried out within thirty days of the expiry date of your current certificate. On passing the MOT test the unexpired time will then be added to the new certificate.
