MOT Sunderland

When that time of year comes around and your vehicle requires its MOT, do not hesitate to get in touch with Penshaw Car Centre, a quality repair and servicing garage that has served the local community since 1980. In 1986, we became a fully-fledged MOT testing station and ever since then we have been carrying out first class MOT tests in Sunderland.

Our MOT testers are all fully accredited by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency and are both qualified and highly experienced. Today our authorised MOT testers can carry out all manner of repairs and refitting work.

MOT Tests while you wait

Having completed MOTs in Sunderland on a daily basis for over 30 years, we understand from experience that time is of the essence for motorists. Whilst we complete a prompt and efficient MOT test in Sunderland, our customers can choose either to stay on site whilst we complete the test or alternatively you can leave your vehicle with us and we will get in contact when we’re done, minimising any disruption to your day.

We cover a comprehensive checklist to any vehicle we service, including:

  • Suspension
  • Clutch repair
  • Brakes
  • Gearbox replacements
  • Exhaust repairs
  • Steering problems

Some problems become more apparent with age, and certainly in our experience older makes and models of cars can be troublesome for their owners. Whatever the circumstances, and no matter whether the car has been repaired by us or by another garage, we offer a free MOT re-test in Sunderland to any car that requires it, whilst we endeavour to fix any vehicle that fails their MOT test to a roadworthy standard within a short timeframe.

Quality MOT Sunderland

In addition to cars and light vans Penshaw Car Centre has been testing motorbikes and scooters since 1995, and our specialist mechanics have serviced all manner of vehicles in the past, giving us the experience and technical know-how to correctly assess the condition of any vehicle that comes into our garage. This, together with our extensive stock of replacement and spare parts, means that we can diagnose and fix your vehicle up to a passable condition in no time at all, with friendly personal service as standard.

We believe that finding a quality MOT testing garage shouldn’t be a difficult task. All MOTs in Sunderland we carry out are of the highest standard, and are always available at a time that suits your schedule.
