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.
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.

Volkswagen (often shortened to VW) is a German automobile manufacturer founded in 1937 by the German Labour Front, a Nazi labour union.
Volkswagen is the flagship marque of the Volkswagen Group, who in turn is majority owned by Porsche. They own and operate a vast number of cars under other brand names—at the time of writing, they have 342 subsidiary companies.
Possibly its most well-known model of the current generation, the VW Golf, was the 2nd best selling car of 2018, behind the Ford Fiesta, which consistently takes the top spot year after year.
The Golf’s 64k registrations in 2018 added to the vast tally of 3.4million Volkswagen cars on the road today.
VW cars achieve consistently strong reviews and are highly respected by critics and drivers alike. They are renowned for investing more money into research and development than almost any other marque and distributing their wealth of motoring knowledge across the many partner brands under the VW Group umbrella.
A classic of its time, originally named the Volkswagen Type 1, it soon became nicknamed the Beetle due to its unique shape, and subsequently the bug. The unique looking car was designed by Ferdinand Porsche for Adolf Hitler, who wanted a cheap and simple mass-produced car to travel around his country’s new road network.
The new model Beetle, originally launched to celebrate the original classic in 1997, and with an updated successor in 2011, was designed around the VW Jetta platform sharing much of its build with the Jetta and Golf. VW announced in 2018 that the Beetle would finally be removed from production in July 2019.
Volkswagen ranked 17th place out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018. Sister companies Skoda and Seat appeared higher up the ranks at 7th and 10th respectively, while executive brand Audi a few places further down the list at joint 20th.
Various recalls have been made on VW models throughout their motoring history. The following are a list of the most recent in the UK and Europe.
The material used for the rear coil springs may be inadequate
The suspension damper forks are defective and could break
The predetermined break point in the cushion for the side airbags in on the wrong side
On vehicles with a rear drum brake, the operational wear of the brake lining and use-related settlement of the drum brake may result in a loss of pre-tension on parking brake cables
A seat belt latch may not have been sufficiently secured to the rear, right-hand seat
The fitting for the headrest may have been incorrectly welded to the backrest
An incorrect adhesive bond between the upper and lower parts of the rear spoiler may have been used
Moisture can reach the LED module of the sunroof’s ambient lighting which may cause a short-circuit
