Grubby car? Mechanics can Refuse you an MOT
Whilst mechanics have the right to refuse to test a car if it is dirty, at many garages if the car is refused because it’s dirty the MOT just won’t take place, so you won’t lose out altogether. If, on the other hand the garage failed the MOT for that reason alone, many garages allow for a 10 day period for a retest at no extra cost.
It was reported that last year, a further 4,650 failed their MOT because drivers had failed to top up their screenwash. With car MOT prices currently capped at £54.85, it’s a costly failure which could easily be avoided with a quick car inspection.
