MOT Testing Explained


We provide MOT testing for motorists in Dorking, Leatherhead, Reigate and the Mole Valley area.


MOT testing is a legal requirement for any car 3 years old or over and must be carried out every 12 months. Minibuses, however, require MOT testing from 1 year old and every year thereafter.


Any reputable MOT garage, such as Station View Garage, comes with DVSA accreditation. This means our equipment and tools, as well as our personnel, meet government standards for carrying out MOT testing.


At Station View Garage, MOT testing takes between 45 and 60 minutes to complete. Our modern facilities, tools and equipment allow us to carry out MOT testing on the following domestic and commercial vehicles:


  • Class 4 – Cars and Light Vans
  • Class 5 – Light Minibuses up to 3,500kg
  • Class 7 – Commercial Vehicles up to 3,500kg
  • Campervans and Motorhomes up to 5,500kg (class varies depending on size)


As a fully equipped MOT garage in Dorking, we welcome any kind of minibus, campervan or motorhome as long as it doesn’t exceed the stated 5,500kg limit.


Our MOT testing currently extends to models of:


  • Autocruise
  • Autorail
  • Autosleeper
  • Bessacar
  • Burstner
  • Eldiss
  • Fleetwood
  • Highlander
  • Highwayman
  • Hymer
  • Knaus
  • Trigano


When the test at our MOT garage is complete, the vehicle either passes or fails. If MOT testing is passed, we issue an MOT certificate as evidence of this. Should a vehicle fail, however, we issue a VT30 certificate that outlines the reasons for the failure.


We encourage our Dorking, Leatherhead, Reigate and Mole Valley area customers to fix any issues with the vehicle as soon as possible. If problems related to a failed MOT are fixed at our MOT garage within 10 days, a partial retesting will suffice. If the issues are left longer than 10 days, another full MOT testing needs to be carried out.



Vehicle Repairs Explained


We carry out a wide-range of vehicle repairs in Dorking, Leatherhead, Reigate and the Mole Valley area.


With such a wide scope of possibility, it’s impossible to cover specific vehicle repairs individually. Whether it’s a grinding clutch, spongy brakes, wheel alignment or an exhaust replacement, our Dorking-based technicians always fully explain any required repairs and agree all costs before work begins.


Station View Garage specialises in BMW/Mini, Land Rover, VW Audi Group, Peugeot, Citroen and Renault models. We fit original-standard parts that match the specifications of the manufacturer to ensure a continued smooth performance.


We understand the frustration and inconvenience that come with vehicle repairs, so we aim to have our customers’ cars roadworthy again as soon as possible.
