Does it really matter which MOT in Macclesfield testing centre you take your car to? VOSA requires the same standards from each testing centre and the same requirements for the tester. The only way we can be sure of that consistency is for VOSA to conduct inspections of every MOT testing centre every year at least. That’s a lot of worker hours which translates into a lot of money. It’s just not possible. So, it is conceivable that your car could pass at one testing centre but fail at another. Since an MOT is a requirement and you have to pay for it, you should expect that any roadworthy failings will be noted. If your car passes, your confidence in the safe condition of your car should be justified. Since that is not always the outcome, choose your MOT testing centre as carefully as you choose your mechanic.
