Car MOT available at Tavistock Tyres
Using our map to find your nearest Protyre garage is a faster way of finding the right place for your next MOT than typing 'MOT in Tavistock near me' into a search engine. Not only is the Protyre name a guarantee of a quality service, but it means you can conveniently book online, often with just a few hours' notice. In addition to class 4 MOT and servicing for cars, we can also cater for vans, motorcycles and even agricultural vehicles.
An MOT mostly includes checks of safety-related components including the suspension, brakes, seat belts, lights, steering column, exhaust, emissions, mirrors, and horn. It is not a full service and does not include vital mechanical components such as your clutch, gearbox or engine. Although these are not considered safety-critical it is clearly important to have maintenance checks. The longer a fault is left, the more expensive it usually becomes to rectify. Tavistock Tyres - Team Protyre is able to offer local MOTs at a great price, we even offer same day appointments which can be booked via our automated online portal.
Book your MOT early to be safe
The problem with last minute MOTs isn’t that we won’t be able to fit you in, it’s that you might fail and be left with a vehicle that is illegal to drive. You can legally drive away a vehicle with relatively minor fault that is still covered by its previous MOT certificate, but if the new test reveals anything serious, your vehicle is immediately illegal (and unsafe) to drive. By booking your appointment 2 or 3 weeks ahead of time, you can ensure that you have breathing space in which to organise any required repairs.
When you get a new class 4 MOT certificate, it is dated from the date on which your old certificate expired, so you don’t lose those 2 or 3 weeks by booking early.

This is why so many of our clients choose to book an annual full service, often at the same time as their MOT.
Car Servicing available at Tavistock Tyres
The costs of regular servicing are far less than the costs of breakdown recovery and emergency repairs. A full service includes inspection of your electrics, timing belt, brake shoes or drums, alternator, radiator and engine, in addition to routine checks of your oil levels, battery, filters and antifreeze. However, in between major car servicing, it is often wise to have an interim service check. These are cheaper but are designed to pre-empt signs of an impending breakdown. An interim service is particularly wise if you’re doing a high mileage, or planning a long trip. You can also pull into Tavistock Tyres at any time for routine tyre, battery and oil checks.
Why not book your MOT and car service at the same time and save! We only charge £20.00 for an MOT when booked with any car servicing package.
