Why choose Lloyd MINI for your MOT?

Bringing your MINI to one of our MINI Approved Centres for servicing, parts and repairs can have more benefits than you might think.

Complimentary Visual Health Check

We will provide a complimentary check of your vehicle's components, carried out by one of our manufacturer trained technicians.

MINI Trained Technicians

Should your MOT test reveal any additional work required, it will be carried out to MINI standards by factory-trained technicians, using only manufacturer-approved processes and equipment.

Genuine MINI Parts

Any additional work that is required will be completed using only Genuine MINI Parts, to help maintain your vehicle's resale value.

What will be checked on your MOT test?

Brakes

Check they are working correctly and aren't overheating. The brake fluid level should also be checked, as this can become low due to an overuse of regenerative braking - which recharges the battery.

Tyres

Must be in a roadworthy condition with enough tread depth, no cuts or bulges and the correct type of tyre for the vehicle. This test is particularly important for frequent drivers as the condition of your tyres can affect efficiency.

Wheels

Ensure there are no cracks or splits in the wheels (or tyre rims) and that all nuts and bolts are secure.

Bodywork

Look for any signs of corrosion, rust or damage to lights, mirrors and number plates.

Battery condition

You will need to prove that your battery can store enough power to start the vehicle and run at least four headlamps.

Charging equipment

If you have an electric or plug-in hyberid vehicle, we will check the charging port for damage or leaks as this could cause an electrical fault.

Lights

All vehicle lights are tested from hazard lights, to brake lights, and headlights - ensuring they are the right brightness and not causing danger to other drivers on the road.

Seatbelt

One of the key safety features we take for granted. So important in fact that if any part of the seat belt is faulty or damaged it could contribute to failing your MOT.

Windscreen

Safety checks including looking out for cracks in the screen itself, as well as testing that the windscreen wipers are in good working order.

Steering

Testing both the wheel and tyre suspension to ensure the car’s steering is in good condition. 

MINI MOT Protect

First MOT test just around the corner? Thanks to your complimentary MINI MOT Protect, you won’t be losing any sleep over the test. In the unlikely event that your car fails to pass the first time around, MINI MOT Protect will cover the cost of replacement and labour on a range of components including brakes, suspension, electrical, fuel system and more.
