What time does my vehicle have to be dropped off for a Drop & Go MOT?

If you have booked a Drop & Go appointment, please drop off your vehicle before 8am. If it is out of hours please leave your keys using our key deposit facility. We will contact you when your MOT is complete & you are welcome to pickup your vehicle. Unfortunately, this service is unavailable at our Deptford branch due to parking restrictions.

There are no available appointments for Drop & Go MOTs, does this mean you are fully booked?​

Our Drop and Go MOT appointments are limited, so if your are unable to find an appointment for this type of booking, please try to book a standard Weekday or Sunday MOT. ​

What is the drive-thru service?

Due to new, local parking restrictions outside our Deptford site, it’s no longer possible to park on the surrounding roads.  We always recommend booking your MOT online for the most efficient service.  Our new ‘drive-thru’ service allows you to stay in your vehicle during the duration of your MOT test.  You can drive in and out and pass your MOT all within 30 minutes!
