    Default pre-MOT

    My MOT isn't due until 3rd Feb but i'm thinking to taking it in early, to give me time to fix all the bits it'll fail on. What's the earliest i can take it in before it affects the original test date? I.E. I want next years test date to be 3rd Feb.

    We advise our customers not to do a pre MOT as its a waste of their money.

    You could fix all the problems and when it goes in again it gets picked up on other stuff.

    I bet most garages prefer owners not to do an MOT early - the less time you have to get failure items sorted, the less likely you are to shop around and get a good price, or wait for a dry weekend and fix it your self.

    I hear ya buddy. It's going in next week for its MOT, period. Just like you say, there's albeit a slim chance of a dry day to do the work. It's not having a pre-MOT. I'm not daft, the garage will probably try and charge me for stuff i don't need anyway so i may as well have 7 days to check and get it sorted.
