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.

MOT & VEHICLE HEALTH CHECK
If your car is over three years old, four years in Northern Ireland, your local Lexus Centre can arrange and carry out an MOT* to ensure it’s roadworthy and complies with safety and environmental requirements.
*MOT not applicable in the Channel Islands or Isle of Man.
HOW DO I BOOK AN MOT CHECK?
Contact your local Lexus Centre to arrange an MOT check, where our trained technicians know your Lexus better than anyone and will aim to get you certified as quickly as possible.
HOW LONG DOES AN MOT CHECK TAKE?
An MOT check takes approximately one hour. If you choose to wait at your local Lexus Centre, you can be sure that you will experience the highest standards of hospitality while your vehicle is prepared. You also have the option of leaving your vehicle with us for a portion of time, and you can collect it whenever is most convenient for you. If your vehicle requires additional attention, our trained Lexus technicians will keep you updated through your chosen method of communication.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY MOT CHECK?
An MOT is a test of whether your car is roadworthy and therefore it does not require specialist knowledge to check the fundamental criteria before your MOT.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY CAR HAS FAILED AN MOT CHECK?
If your car fails its MOT check, our priority will be to inform you and rectify the problems as quickly as possible. Your local Lexus Centre 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.
