What is BMW MOT Protect?
Your first MOT inspection will arrive faster than you think. That’s why we offer BMW MOT Protect, a complimentary cover for all new BMWs. Your BMW’s MOT Protect covers you for any* work that needs completing to pass your first MOT inspection. In the unlikely event your BMW fails its first MOT, you won’t lose out, as repairs, replacements and labour are covered on a long list of key items, from electric and lighting equipment to steering and suspension. We’ll work with you to address any issues promptly and free of charge.
*MOT Protect will cover all items with the exception of the windscreen, wheels, tyres and items replaced as part of routine servicing (e.g. brake disks and pads) modified and/or non-BMW components.
How often do I need to MOT my BMW?
An MOT test is required for vehicles three years or older on an annual basis. If you have a new BMW and are not sure when your MOT is due, the time of registration will give you a date for when you need to get its first MOT test. All vehicles must have a valid MOT certificate, which lasts for 12 months.
When your BMW needs its first MOT
Your BMW will receive thorough tests and checks to make sure that vital parts meet the legal standard in order to make your vehicle roadworthy. Get your BMW MOT test up to a day before the expiry date to keep the same renewal date, or get it up to one month before the current certificate is due to expire to allow time for any possible repairs to be carried out.
As the vehicle’s owner, you are responsible for making sure that your BMW is examined by a trained professional every 12 months. If you fail to provide a valid MOT certificate, your insurance will become invalid and you could be fined up to £1000. It is illegal to drive without a valid MOT certificate and insurance cover.
How long does an MOT take?
You can leave your BMW with us or we can carry out the test while you wait. An MOT generally takes between 45 and 60 minutes, so you’re more than welcome to relax at our BMW Service and MOT centre with a cup of coffee. When booking your MOT, there are a few things to take into consideration:
- Always allow time for repairs, should your BMW fail its MOT test
- If your BMW fails its MOT, the test centre cannot legally let you drive away in your vehicle, unless your current MOT is still valid
- Some test centres may require you to drop off your BMW first thing in the morning
- It is best to plan to be without your car for a day, just in case you should need any repairs
How much does a BMW MOT cost?
Here at Barons & Chandlers BMW, you can get your BMW MOT with MOT Protect for £54.85. In the event that your BMW does fail its MOT, replacement parts and labour will be provided free of charge to enable your car to pass thanks to MOT Protect. Our BMW specialist technicians will always discuss any remedial work with you and will only proceed with your permission. We’ll make sure that your BMW performs exactly like it was designed to, so you can trust the experts.
