An Important Message From Our CEO

COVID-19 Update

Following the Governments announcement on Monday evening directing everyone to stay at home, we are closing our businesses effective immediately. This includes both our Sales and Aftersales departments.

Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our colleagues and you, our customer. As a team we want to continue to offer you the highest possible level of customer care that we can under what are very difficult circumstances.

If you do have any questions please visit our website and you will be able to contact us through here, although please bear with us as we are experiencing high levels of customer queries at present.

We will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and update our website as the position develops. Please check this on a regular basis for any notification of reopening.

In these uncertain times, we would like to thank you for your custom and trust we can continue to support you with all your motoring needs.

Take care of yourself and your families and we look forward to opening our doors to you in what we hope is the not too distant future.

MOT Updates:

From 30 March 2020, MOT due dates for cars, motorcycles and light vans will be extended by 6 months.

This is being done to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

What you need to do

You do not need to do anything to extend your vehicle’s MOT expiry date if it’s on or after 30 March 2020. However, you must keep your vehicle safe to drive.

Your vehicle will be automatically given a 6-month MOT exemption. This will extend your current MOT expiry date by 6 months.

Example: Your vehicle’s MOT was due to expire on 3 April 2020.

This will automatically be extended to 3 October 2020. You will need to get your MOT by this date.

If your vehicle’s first MOT is due

Your vehicle will be automatically given a 6-month MOT exemption from the date its first MOT was due.

If your first MOT was due before 30 March 2020 and your vehicle did not pass

Your vehicle will not get an extension to its MOT due date.

Your vehicle will need to pass an MOT before you can drive it again.

The Department for Transport (DfT) is working with insurers and the police to make sure you are not unfairly penalised for not being able to get an MOT.
