What is an MOT and Why do I need one?

An MOT check (or MOT)  is a thorough and in-depth examination of your car, carried out yearly. To keep your BMW running smoothly as possible and to avoid any potential unseen issues, you’ll need to book your BMW in once a year for an MOT. Your MOT will be undertaken by specialised BMW-trained technicians with state of the art workshops and diagnostic equipment to give your car the most thorough inspection possible.

If you own a new BMW, you should book your car in for an MOT at the end of the first three years, after that you’ll be required to book your car in every year.

The standard MOT inspection consists of checking over 150 safety and emissions related systems on your vehicle, including lights, steering, brakes and suspension. This not only  ensures your BMW meets legal requirements but ensures you’ll always have the ultimate driving experience

The standard inspection of over 150 safety and emissions related systems, including lights, steering, brakes and suspension, ensures your BMW meets legal requirements, as well as helping preserve the driving experience you have come to enjoy. 

Does my MOT have to be done by Peter Vardy BMW?  

Absolutely not. There's no requirement that says you have to bring your car back to any BMW dealership to have an MOT carried out on it.

No one knows your BMW and will be able to look after it quite like we will. Our specialist BMW trained technicians have state of the art diagnostic equipment and will only use Genuine BMW parts to undertake any repairs, ensuring the integrity of your vehicle is maintained.
