Confirmation that establishes your vehicle's roadworthiness is essential for driving legally across the UK and many other countries. Also, the associated checks for issuing these certificates help ensure the car is safe for its passengers, drivers and other road users.
The mandatory inspection is called the MOT test. At Campbells Tyres & Exhausts, we carry out MOT Redcar following all regulations. We are authorised by the DVSA to conduct this inspection and thereby allowed to issue a VT20 or VT30 certificate.
A Quick Rundown Of MOT Tests
MOT, or the Ministry Of Transport, has mandated an annual safety test for nearly all vehicles over 3 years old.
During this test, the certified testers inspect your vehicle's braking performance, emission levels, and certain safety aspects like the seatbelts, lights, mirrors, and overall body- and tyre condition, to name only a few. The inspection takes about 45 minutes.
Please note: Certain mechanical parts like your vehicle's engine, clutch and gearbox are excluded from the standard MOT checklist. To ensure their smooth functionality, we advise you to contact us to book a separate Pre-MOT check.

Key Components Checked During An MOT Redcar
When you arrive on the scheduled date, our technicians first go through your vehicle's previous MOT history. If we notice any previous issues, we may suggest a specific service for the given component.
After that, the below-mentioned parts will be checked thoroughly:
- Exterior components like the doors, bonnet, fuel lid
- Windows and windscreen
- Seats and seatbelts
- Headlights and indicators
- Exhaust plus emissions
- Suspension, and several more
Depending on the test results of the MOT test Redcar Marske and Saltburn, our testers will issue either of the three safety statuses:
This condition points to the need for certain minute repairs, which may enhance driveability and comfort. The presence of minor issues does not lead to an MOT failure. A VT20 (pass) certificate will still be issued. Any minor faults will be recorded and checked again at the next MOT test.
Major problems in any one or more components, as mentioned above, will result in an MOT failure. It is imperative to opt for the necessary repairs and replacements as soon as possible in case of major issues.
It is the worst status that questions your vehicle's on-road safety. Also, it may refer to intolerable emission levels that would need immediate professional attention so that you can continue driving legally.
Major- and Dangerous faults will automatically result in MOT failure. A VT30 report will be issued.
After a VT30 had been issued, driving as well as parking the vehicle on public roads is no longer allowed. If ignored, it results in hefty fines. Also, insurance companies will no longer cover in case of accidents and damage.
The faults must be rectified, and the repaired/changed sections must be re-tested before a VT20 can be issued.
In case of an MOT failure, our team can help you with any required repairs, and we can certainly also carry out the required partial re-test.
