MOT testing from VOSA-approved specialists in Crawley, Horsham and surrounding areas

The Copthorne Motor Company operate as a VOSA-approved MOT testing station. We undertake MOTs in Crawley and Horsham on passenger cars, light commercial vehicles and shuttle buses in a fully equipped and professional environment and all parts of the surrounding West Sussex area. Motorists with a vehicle over 3 years old have a legal obligation to present it for an MOT inspection each year. The vehicle must meet specific roadworthiness, safety and environmental standards to achieve a pass.

We have state-of-the-art equipment at our MOT testing station with computer technology that connects directly to a national database. Before the next MOT is due, we send out a reminder to existing customers in the Crawley and Horsham areas that advise them on the need to book an appointment for their next test. Driving a vehicle without an MOT certificate could see the driver fined up to £1000.

We can undertake MOTs up to one month before the scheduled expiry date. Visit our testing station in Crawley during this period and your new MOT certificate will expire exactly one year after the expiry date of the old certificate. Submit your vehicle for an MOT any earlier and the certificate will expire exactly one year later. This means that the vehicle owner ultimately loses out. If your car fails the MOT test, we provide free retesting if you come back to us with the vehicle in full working order within a specified timeframe.

MOT testing in Crawley and Horsham covers a wide range of important checks and every inspection is undertaken by VOSA-trained personnel. Here, we list the main areas of the inspection. We strongly recommend that customers in the Crawley and Horsham areas have their vehicle inspected before a test to give it the best possible chance of passing.
