Hi all fellow drivers in SE1.
Please can you give me some pointers on where to get this MOT done and prcess? I am australian, this is first time for me and i dont realy know what i am doing or where to take it! Due 31st March... yes shaefully i am your typical female car owner! :)
I use the Millennium Garage under the arches in Great Suffolk St. (oppositish the BP petrol station) and have done for several years. They're very friendly and as a woman, do not talk down to you which is a real plus. They've always done a great job and never suggested unnecessary and expensive stuff which I find happens all the time at 'big name' garages.
There is a way of getting extremely lost cost mot by using the garage that a local council uses (or something). Look on the Martin Lewis money saving expert website. I didnt do this because of huge inertia but from experience all of the things that he recommends save masses of money.
good luck if you go ahead with it and let us know how to do it
I also use RW Autos and they've always been great. They explain what's wrong (if anything) without doing it like I'm a stupid girl. Also, my car's passed its MOT the past two times with no problems - I think it's normally a good sign of an honest garage that they don't try to tell you that you need new tyres or something (although you should be able to see the MOT failure paperwork if your car does fail).
