The MOT test covers:
- Steering (including suspension),
- Tyres and Wheels,
- Seat Belts,
- Body Structure and
- General Items including Exhaust, Fuel and Emissions plus Drivers View of the Road.
The MOT test does not cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox. Maintenance that is necessary for the reliable and efficient operation of the vehicle, but not its safety, forms part of a service inspection that is recommended by manufacturers.
An MOT test certificate confirms that at the time of test, the vehicle has met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards. However, it does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate.
GSF Motorworks Ltd is a full service workshop and can provide for all your vehicle’s needs.
VOSA MOT Test
“MOT” is the abbreviation for “Ministry of Transport”. This respective department has four strategic objectives, one out of which is to strengthen the safety and security of transportation throughout the UK. The Ministry of Transport test, in short: the MOT-test, is an annual test of vehicle safety, roadworthiness aspects and exhaust emissions required in Great Britain for most vehicles over three years old used on any way defined as a road in the Road Traffic Act 1988; it does not apply only to highways but includes other places available for public use which are not highways.
I took my BMW M5 to GSF for some general cosmetic repairs as after owning the car for the past ten years from new, I have reluctantly decided to sell it. From the outset, the team were on the ball, attentive and very professional. The service advisor, Michelle, is a delight, She is always laughing but never seems to drop the ball. She is also very articulate and has an attention to detail. The main assessor there is a guy called VIP. Clearly very experienced , he missed nothing and knows his cars and each model. The quote to make good was extremely competitive and the quality of the work was perfect. I would recommend them to anyone. In case anyone thinks this is not an independent review. please contact me.
Went for a general service in my Polo. A bit far away from my home in Old Street, but fair in pricing and fast.
Couldn’t give enough stars ! They helped me out at the last minute and were so helpful. Definitely using them for all my car work in the future. Roberto was amazing. Thank you.
I had a great experience with GSF. They were very helpful and friendly and fitted me in very quickly. The work which they have done is fantastic and if I ever have a problem with my car again I will be sure to return to GSF. I would also highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of any car help. Thanks to the team for doing such a great job on my car, she looks brand new 🙂
Very Happy with the service. Was there a couple of weeks ago for some bodywork Will use them again for my mot and service
From start to finish, GSF provided an excellent experience. Comment relates to service/ MOT of Audi A3. All the staff (including initial call, car pick-up and servicing) were courteous, helpful and knowledgeable. As well as this excellent customer service, the price was reasonable and the turnaround quick.
Great service, very good communication. We get our (ageing) Audi A4 serviced here. Thanks guys
I dropped off my car to have the tracking reset and asked Roberto at GSF to also look at a couple of other issues that were affecting our car. They did all the work efficiently and fixed all the problems. The great news was that they only charged me for the tracking job, which was very reasonable. I would highly recommend them and would use GSF again.
GSF did a fantastic repair to my BMW Z4. You would never know that the bumper had been replaced and sprayed to match the existing colour. Great costumer care and the excellent valet was added bonus.
I have been using GSF for years. Would highly recommend them to anyone.
I was recommended this Garage who by a close friend. As new customer they immediately gave me a good feeling of competence and knowledge about my vehicle (Renault). Major server was completed without issue using good quality fluids and they pointed out (and fixed) some safety issues my previous garage had missed. The tracking was adjusted perfectly and the car drives perfectly now. Overall Very happy and will return when the next service is due. Thanks a lot GSF !!
Found this garage to be very helpful and also extremely professional. They did a great job on my Range Rover from a simple service to diagnosing a fault with my alternator. But the best bit of it all is the price competitive and also the labour charge is alot less than any main stream garages plus the work is 100% bang on, so will be using them again for my wife’s Mercedes.
I went to GSF after moving to South Kensington to service my BMW 3-series. The staff were friendly and car-literate. Best of all they tell you when you can have your car back and actually stick to it. Previous experiences with other garages promising it will be ready in one more day etc are just a nightmare. I am going to make GSF my regular garage.
Great service. People were very helpful and polite. The car looked good as new and cost a fraction of what main dealer was quoting. Turnaround time was really quick too.
This is hands down the best garage I have ever been to. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend… and often do unprompted. Love these guys.
Many people told me that repairing of the clutch will take a whole day and that’s the main reason why I really appreciate the efforts of these guys. They managed to repair it for about 5 hours and I was more than pleased by the job done. Thank you guys !
