MOT’s

Last year, Lancing Commercial carried out over 1,500 MOTs at our purpose-built MOT test and service bays.

We are MOTs for Class 4 and Class 5 light plus Class 7 vehicles and we also carry out MOT pre-check, preparation and presentation for VOSA tests for commercial vehicles weighing over 3.5 tonnes.
We offer while you wait MOTs and repairs, and customers can request an MOT online  or call us on 01903 753852 to arrange.

Our 20,000 sq. ft. premises on Lancing Business Park offers plenty of parking and a customer waiting room.

  • Motorhome testing for most UK manufacturers (including Hymer), but we don’t MOT twin/tag rear axle motorhomes.  A-class Dethleffs with large coach type mirrors unfortunately are too wide for our lift
  • Free retests within the allowed period
  • We’ll always try our best on minor failures such as bulbs and headlight alignment to repair them at the end of the test : PRS “Pass with Rectification at Station,” but this will always be subject to the tester’s view and time available.

Please be aware we are NOT an Authorised Test Facility (ATF) for HGV MOT purposes. The nearest ATF to us is Rossetts Commercials, tel: 01903 223400.

MOT Repairs and Failures

Our modern commercial bodyshop and dedicated service bays allow us to carry out MOT repairs and diagnostics onsite quickly and cost-effectively, so that you can get back on the road swiftly.

If your vehicle fails an MOT, we’ll work with you to find the best solution to minimise the time your vehicle is off the road.

As an independent commercial garage, we have the flexibility and knowledge to provide impartial advice and detailed quotes based on hourly rates, rather than “off-the-shelf” pricing often used by main dealers.

And, because we’re independently owned, we have no allegiance to particular manufacturers and can quickly source the best and most cost-effective spares and parts.

Unsure what MOT you need?

The MOT rules changed in May 2018.  This has primarily affected the test class of some vehicles and emission  limits on diesels.

If you are unsure of how the changes affect your vehicle’s MOT, call us today on 01903 753852 and we’ll be delighted to help. 

Alternatively, visit the gov.uk website to find out more about MOT rule changes.
