Choose the experts at Brayley Kia for your Kia MOT test

Brayley Kia is an official main dealer for Kia, so we have all the necessary and most up-to-date testing and diagnostics equipment to look after your Kia. In addition to being Kia-trained technicians, our MOT testers have all met or surpassed the requirements laid down by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). The DVSA demands that our MOT testers are all qualified mechanics with a minimum of four years’ experience. They must then train as MOT testers, undergo a stringent test, then attend further training and a re-assessment every year. With so much Kia expertise at your fingertips, it makes good sense to think about having your Kia MOT done at the same time as your annual service, so please contact us at any of our Brayley Kia dealerships in Oxford, Enfield and Harpenden to book your car in.

Your MOT test guide

MOT tests began in 1960 and, since then, there have been several changes to the testing regime, so it now covers more components and is much stricter in many areas. On 20th May 2018, the most recent changes were made to the MOT test, but don’t worry, at Brayleys we are fully up to date on the new test and what it means for you and your Kia. Just remember that once your car reaches the third anniversary of its registration, it must have a valid MOT certificate or you risk being fined up to £1,000.

The MOT test covers a huge array of items and checks, but there are no tests on the engine, gearbox or clutch. When it comes to safety, you are responsible for making sure that there are no safety issues with your car every time you drive it – all the MOT test does is give you a snapshot of certain areas at the time of the test.

MOT tests comprise the following:

  • Body, vehicle structure and general items
  • Fuel system, exhaust system and emissions
  • Steering, suspension, tyres and wheels
  • Battery and visible electrical wiring
  • Brakes
  • Seats and seatbelts
  • Security and operation of doors, bonnet and boot lid or tailgate
  • Lights
  • Windscreen condition
  • Horn
  • Registration plates and VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
  • Any tow bar fitted to your car

What if my car fails its MOT test?

Regular servicing at your local Brayley Kia will make sure your Kia is always at its best. However, in the unlikely event of an issue being discovered during your Kia’s MOT test, we’ll advise you whether this is a minor, major or dangerous defect. If we find any minor defects, this doesn’t mean an MOT fail. However, both major and dangerous defects will certainly result in a fail. We’ll be happy to let you have an estimate for the work required to remedy the defect and, on completion, we can either carry out a full or partial retest – we’ll advise you which will be required and the associated conditions. Minor defects and anything else for which we may issue you with an advisory note won’t result in a fail, but could cause you problems in due course, so we would suggest getting your car booked in with us as soon as possible, so they can be dealt with. At Brayley Kia, we are Kia specialists as well as MOT testing experts. This combination of skills and knowledge is very reasonably priced – our Kia MOT cost is only £54.85. For any questions about your Kia, your Kia MOT test and booking your MOT and service together, please just get in touch with our friendly Kia servicing team.
