Leicester MOT centre now taking bookings

As we wrote earlier in the year, VFR Motors took over the Charge and Start MOT centre back in June.

It hasn’t been a smooth journey! We’ve had a few speed bumps that slowed down the transfer of ownership. But we’re happy to say everything is now ticking over beautifully.

DVSA connected

Our system is fully connected to the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) system.

VFR Motors is a DVSA connected MOT centre

This means that the DVSA get live date from our system. As we complete each stage of your MOT test, the data is recorded instantly in the government system.

Before this sort if digital wizardry, we used to enter all the data on paper and submit manually. This could take days or weeks!

Now, when we hit the pass or fail button, it is simultaneously available on the official tracking systems. The MOT pass or fail is also registered on the DVLA vehicle tax system.

The downside: a failed MOT is now also instant and the car fails on that day. Any remaining time on the existing MOT is no longer valid.

Two fully qualified registered MOT testers

We’re proud to say we now have two fully qualified registered MOT testers in house. Our own David Hands recently passed the MOT tester exam and practical. He passed the college course in August and took the practical exam in October.

And of course Paul, who registered as an MOT tester many years ago. Customers who brought their vehicles in for MOT with Charge and Start will know Paul well. Paul continues his MOT work as part of the VFR Motors team.
