JANUARY 2021 UPDATE
MOT extensions have now ended which means you must book an MOT as usual. You can double check your MOT due date here.
Because all of the extended MOTs will now become due in the next few months there will be a 100% increase in demand for MOTs between now and 31st January 2021.
We strongly advise you to get booked in using our online booking system so that you don’t get caught out later on with low MOT appointment availablilty.
You can book as far in advance as you like and the booking secures your slot permanently.
We can arrange a Hands Free Handover Pick Up and Drop Off service for your vehicle if you are unable to leave home.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
If your vehicle age is 3 years or older you are required by law to have an annual safety check, the ministry of transport test, commonly known as the MOT Test.
The purpose of an MOT test is to ensure the vehicle meets the minimum safety level required by law.
At Gainsford Hall Workshop we use the latest specification fully automated test lane, meaning your MOT test is carried out to the highest possible standard.
Whether you would like to tie your MOT test in with your regular service, or require just an MOT, please contact us and we’ll be happy to arrange an appointment to suit your needs.

Gainsford Hall; Chris Darren and the rest of the team will not let you down. Whatever motor work you need they are a great starting point! They will help and advise and if the job is not right for them, they will hand you off to another quality service team that they work with regularly. There is genuine care for heir customers at Gainsford Hall, nothing is too much trouble snd they talk to you to make suer you understand exactly what they know anymore importantly, what they think! I have used them for Little Citroen's. Little Peugeots, Bigger Peugeots, Land Rover Freelander 2 and my 2011 Defender 110, they also do servicing and MOTs which for some reason don't pop up win the Google Services list. They also don't charge the earth and simply do what they say, if there are problems, they sort them. It's really all you want from a motor workshop, without any of the sharp intakes of breath before announcing big prices in the language of gobbledygook!
