Motorcycle MOT Cheltenham

If your bike is due for a motorcycle MOT in Cheltenham, bring it to my independent workshop today. Once your motorcycle reaches 3 years old, it will need an MOT test and one every 12 months thereafter. This test ensures that your bike is legally roadworthy and in the best condition possible, so do not delay and get in touch with me today. I am a skilled and experienced technician who will thoroughly inspect your motorcycle using the latest equipment, and if I discover any issues, I can repair any faults at competitive rates. For more information, get in touch with me today on 01242 263111

Test Fees, Retests and Appeals

As classified by the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency, I provide MOT Tests for Class 1 & 2 vehicles: motorcycles and motorcycles with a side car. Current test fees are:

  • Class 1 & 2: £29.65
  • Motorcycle with sidecar: £37.50

Retests (re-examinations): I offer retests if the vehicle is brought back to the same test station and retested before the end of the next working day on one or more of the following items only (no additional fee: partial re-examination):

  • Access panels.
  • Battery.
  • Brake pedal anti-slip.
  • Doors (including hinges, catches and pillars).
  • Dropsides.
  • Electrical wiring.
  • Fuel filler cap.
  • Headlamp cleaning or levelling devices (not requiring a headlamp aim check).
  • Horn.
  • Lamps (exuding headlamp aim).
  • Main beam ‘tell-tale’.
  • Mirrors.
  • Rear reflectors.

  • Sharp edges or projections.
  • Tyre pressure monitoring system.
  • Vehicle identification number (VIN).
  • Windscreen and glass.

If the vehicle is left at the testing station for repair and is retested before the end of 10 working days following the day of the initial failure, then only a partial retest is needed for which no fee may be charged.

If the vehicle is removed from the testing station for repair and is returned for retest within 10 working days following the day of the initial failure, then only a partial retest is needed, and a partial retest fee may be charged. Only one partial re-examination is permissible per full examination.

  • In any other case full re-examination: Full Fee.
  • Appeal test fee: Full Fee.

Visit An Independent Workshop

For your MOT, why not visit an independent workshop in your local area? At Gas Junky Motorcycles I am proud to offer a professional yet personal service where I get to know my customers and their bikes. I want everyone who visits the workshop to feel part of the family and feel reassured that they are leaving their bike in the best hands. In addition, as the workshop is independent, I can also offer very competitive prices on all of my services.

I am also extremely lucky to be situated next door to Botanica Coffee Kitchen, one of Cheltenham’s finest cafés.  So why not relax and enjoy a cup of dark roast or a bite of something very tasty while you’re waiting for your MOT to be completed?
