If your Lexus is over three years old, an MOT test is required to ensure that your car is both roadworthy and compliant with safety and environmental standards set by the Ministry of Transport.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN AN MOT?
By taking your car to your nearest Lexus Centre for an MOT you can be assured of the best results for you and your car. From the exemplary customer service intrinsic to Lexus, to the skilled technicians performing your MOT Check, we will ensure that you are back on the road quickly and with absolute confidence.
An MOT Check* is a comprehensive check to establish that a vehicle meets the legal standards required to drive on the road, however it excludes the condition of the engine, clutch and gearbox. An MOT certificate from any Lexus Centre is provided at a fixed price, so there's no need to shop around.
The assessment includes a thorough inspection of your car's lights, steering, suspension, battery, fuel system, emissions, brakes, wheels and tyres. If your vehicle fails its MOT Test for any reason, our expert technicians will conduct any repairs with the quality of Lexus genuine parts.
*MOT not applicable in the Channel Islands or Isle of Man.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY MOT CHECK?

Lexus Carlisle is likely to have the necessary parts in stock, but in the unlikely event that we do not, our Same Day Service will ensure that you are not inconvenienced and off the road for long.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CAR SERVICE AND AN MOT CHECK?
An MOT check is an annual legal requirement for all vehicles over 3 years old. This checks whether your vehicle is roadworthy to the essential standard. This is a visual test and does not take anything apart; even your car’s wheels will stay on during this check. It does not mean that your vehicle is running to a high standard necessarily, but only that it is safe to drive for you and other road users.
WHY DO I NEED REGULAR SERVICING AS WELL AS AN MOT?
A service is essential to tell you whether your car is in good condition, get the best performance and to optimize the longevity of your car. A Lexus service is a thorough inspection of your car from every angle including lights, engine, brakes and suspension. With dedicated knowledge of every model in the Lexus range, an inspection by our trained technicians will give you ultimate peace of mind for the road ahead.
