MOT Testing in Marlborough


Axford Garage Services in Marlborough, Wiltshire are a DVSA approved MOT Test Centre and can carry out Class 4 MOT Tests and Class 7 MOT Tests on site here at Smiths Yard, Axford. We are an appointment only MOT Test Centre and unfortunately cannot accept ‘walk-ins’.


  • Class 4 - up to 3,000kg DGW (cars, 4x4 and light commercials).

  • Class 7 - over 3,000kg up to 3,500kg DGW.


Customers can either wait during their MOT Test in our waiting area or drop and leave, whichever is more convenient. MOT Tests take approximately 1 hour. We also have a courtesy car which you can request at the time of booking, if available.

The DVSA has now digitalised the MOT Test, which means once a test is completed (either a pass or a fail) this updates the DVLA immediately. To check the MOT history of your vehicle or print a duplicate MOT Test Certificate, you can visit and will be asked to enter the 11 digit code from your V5C


Here at Axford Garage Services we can provide you with an MOT reminder, by SMS or email, free of charge, should you wish to ‘opt-in’ to our yearly reminder service, please make this known to your service advisor.


Did you know? You can present your MOT up to 1 month (less 1 day) early and you will still keep the same renewal date. You can present your MOT earlier than this, but the new expiry date will be 1 year (less 1 day) from the date of test.

If you MOT has expired (run out) it means that you must not drive your vehicle on the roads, with the exception of:

  • Taking it to the MOT Test Centre for its MOT Test/Re-test

  • Taking it to/from a Garage for MOT repairs


You can be prosecuted or fined up to £1,000.00 if caught driving without a valid MOT.

Please note that an MOT Test is a safety check to make sure your vehicle meets the legal standards at time of MOT Test and does not relate to vehicle servicing in anyway. The MOT Test does not cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox and road wheels are not removed during a test.


Vehicle parts that are tested can be found in the MOT guide and inspection manuals, which can be found online at


All our MOT Test equipment is approved and calibrated in line with the DVSA Testing Standards
