Boasting many medieval heritage buildings, Southampton hosts some of the longest surviving stretches of medieval walls in England.

It’s also home to a multitude of museums, including the Tudor House and Southampton Maritime museums. The SeaCity Museum is located in the west wing of the Civic Centre and focuses on the city’s trading history and the famous ocean-going passenger liner, The Titanic.

The Guildhall (currently branded The O2 Guildhall) has played host to a mass of musical talent in its time: Pink Floyd, David Bowie, The Killers, Amy Winehouse and Lostprophets have all played here, as well as the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Southampton Philharmonic Choir.

What's an MOT?

The MOT test is how the government checks your vehicle meets national safety and environmental standards. Your car is first tested three years post-registration, then annually, and driving a vehicle without a valid MOT could mean a fine of up to £1,000.

The most common reasons for failing your MOT including lighting and signalling, suspension, brakes and tyres. And nearly a quarter of diesel vehicles reportedly fail their MOTs due to the stricter guidelines on diesel emissions.

MOT time can feel nerve-racking, especially if you rely on your vehicle heavily for work or family reasons. But it doesn’t have to be. At Fixter, we make the process hassle-free with our straightforward, no-nonsense UK-wide service.

How often an MOT needs to be done?

Your car is first tested three years post-registration, then annually, and be aware that driving a vehicle without a valid MOT could mean a fine of up to £1,000.

How an MOT works?

Here’s what our friendly, top-quality service offers:

  • Free collection and delivery of your motor to and from the garage at times to suit you, meaning you won’t need to deal with the garage yourself, or hang around while the MOT is being done.

  • Our upfront, transparent pricing beats most of the competition and local garages hands down, and there are no hidden costs – prices are always well below the UK national maximum for an MOT of nearly £55.

  • A year-long warranty on all parts and labour.

  • Parts are manufacturer-equivalent only.
