MOT repair costs continue to rise

Recent data has shown that the cost of repairing a vehicle which fails its MOT has nearly doubled over the last year and a half.
MOT repair costs continue to rise

The RAC has highlighted figures from Halfords Autocentre, showing the average cost for necessary repairs to be £143 per motorist.  The figure 18 months ago was just £82.

An MOT indicates a vehicle’s roadworthiness, and it is a legal requirement to drive with an up-to-date MOT.

Further findings from the research revealed that 23% of those surveyed said they go into their MOT blindly, simply hoping it will pass, while just under a fifth take a “cursory glance around the car” before the test.

A massive 40% of vehicles failed their MOTs last year, which is up by 3% on 2009.

The rising cost of MOT repairs, coupled with increasing numbers of failures, will be unwelcome news for drivers, who must already find the money for car insurance, and many also look to breakdown cover for reassuring peace of mind, which is another expense.
