MOT CHECKS WITH FORD SERVICE

If your car is over three years old, it will need an annual Ministry of Transport (MOT) check, to ensure it meets the relevant legal road safety and environmental standards. When your vehicle’s compulsory test is due, one of the best places to bring it is to an approved Ford Dealer.

You can book a MOT on its own or combined with a service. By booking your MOT and servicing with Ford, you will benefit from convenient appointment bookings. You will also get the added peace of mind that all work is carried out by Ford trained experts, using genuine Ford-approved parts.
