MOT testing is required by law on all vehicles in the UK that are 3 years old or more. The annual inspection follows strict criteria set out by the DVSA that determines if your car is fit for purpose and in roadworthy condition. To find out if your vehicle has a valid MOT and when your next MOT test is due, visit the GOV.UK website and enter your vehicle registration number.
We can MOT or service any make of car and within our highly trained team of technicians we have extensive experience in most brands including BMW, Mercedes, Audi, VW and many more.

Tips to help pass your MOT 1st time.
At MOT Henley on Thames, we want you to pass first time so we put together a helpful checklist of things you can
check yourself before taking your car in for its MOT test.
Your lights need to all be in good working order. This includes your headlights, sidelights, indicators, brake lights and not forgetting your vehicle registration light.
Your tyres should be properly inflated (check your vehicle handbook for correct tyre pressures or use our tyre pressure checker) and have at least 1.6mm of tread around the whole tyre.
Your wipers and washers should be in a suitable condition to give you a clear view of the road ahead. If your wipers are splitting or your washer feed is blocked, this will require attention prior to your MOT.
Engine oil levels
Check your oil levels. Remove your dipstick from the engine and give it a wipe. Put it back in the engine and pull it out again. Your oil level should be between the minimum and maximum marks (check your vehicle manual for specific instructions). Make sure your car is parked on an even level when doing this.
Make sure your braking system is in good working condition. If the car pulls to one side when you apply the brakes, this may suggest a problem that requires further attention before you take your MOT.
