A Dedicated MOT Test Centre

Having an annual MoT test carried out is, of course, a legal requirement but it is not always easy to find a car diagnostic specialist which goes above and beyond the service you would normally expect of a typical MoT centre. However, at Kinleys MoT garage, this is exactly what we provide. Our friendly and professional team will not simply carry out your MoT but provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision about what action to take – if any is needed, that is. No MoT garage in Southampton can match us for approachability or expertise. What’s more, we only use original equipment quality parts, where needed, to safeguard your car manufacturer’s warranty.
