MOT Check | Darlington & Northallerton | RMB Dacia

Dacia MOT Checks

Whether we like it or not, MOT testing is a fact of motoring life – and an essential one. Vehicles that are three years old and more need an MOT test once a year – it’s the law.

Aside from the safety implications, MOT testing saves money in the long run by identifying issues that can be rectified. Rather than leaving an inefficient or defective car to deteriorate further, regular MOT tests ensure that it cheaper to maintain and avoid the need to pay an unexpected repair bill.

If it’s time to have your Dacia tested, you’ve come to the right place. All of our testers are DVSA-trained; the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency enforces the highest standards when it comes to the MOT scheme.

When to book my car for an MOT?

An annual MOT check is a mandatory test for all cars over 3 years old. Once your car reaches 3 years old it will require its first test. After that, an MOT will be required every 12 months. To book your car’s MOT, complete our simple online form. Alternatively you can phone or visit our Northallerton or Darlington dealerships, each open seven days a week.

What will happen during the MOT?

On the day, our team of Dacia trained experts will inspect:

  • Bodywork,
  • Doors and mirrors,
  • Lights and horn,
  • Brakes, steering and suspension,
  • Tyres and wheels,
  • Windscreen, wipers and washer bottle,
  • Exhaust fuel and emissions,
  • Seats and seatbelts,
  • Vehicle identification number, and
  • Registration plate of your vehicle.

Our expert technicians only ever use authentic Dacia parts when completing any maintenance and repair work.
