How Do We Conduct Class 4 MOT Test Bridgend?

When you bring your vehicle to us for its annual MOT assessment, we begin with checking its MOT history. Next, we examine the crucial vehicle components to assess their functionality. Here are some of the components included in our inspection list:


Proper exhaust functioning ensures that your vehicle meets the environmental standards. Thus, exhaust inspection is one of the crucial factors while assessing your vehicle's roadworthiness. Our experts inspect the exhaust components like oxygen sensors, catalytic converter, exhaust manifold, etc., to check if they are functioning optimally. An emission test must also be carried out.


A functional suspension system offers comfortable, bump-free rides to enhance your driving experience. It is essential to maintain the functionality of the suspension system to clear the MOT assessment successfully. While performing the assessment, we will inspect suspension components like springs, struts, shock absorbers, etc.


Testers check the health of the vehicle's tyres. Driving on excessive or uneven tyres is not at all safe, thus it will be detected. If the tyre treads depth doesn’t match the legal limit, there is a risk of a road accident. The minimum tread depth for a car is 1.6 mm, beyond this, that tyre is useless. Then, the only solution is to replace such tyres. The tester will also look to see if there are any large bulges, cracks or wrinkles on the inner and outer edges of the tyre.


MOT testing by the DVSA also includes a light test. So our testers will also detect if the lights and indicators are working properly or not. It checks whether the lights are in their places or not and how’s their brightness level. Lights play a big role when you are driving.

Apart from these, we will also inspect the following components:

  • Wheels
  • Brakes
  • Seatbelts
  • General Body condition
  • Doors And Locks
  • Number plates
  • Mirrors
  • Wiper Blades And Windshield,

And several other parts.

Once we finished the inspection, we will note down the results. If any faults were found, they will be classified as minor, major, and dangerous. In case of zero or minor issues, we will certify your vehicle with a VT20 certificate, but for major and dangerous issues, you will receive a VT30 certificate.

All faults must be rectified, and the vehicle must undergo a partial re-test to receive a VT20.
