在英國為愛車做MOT? 各地政府的MOT檢測中心有多好 大多數人不知道!

car-35079_640

曾經我一到汽車該做MOT之前就會緊張, 根本沒察覺到哪裡會有問題的時候, 簡直每次都得花七八百鎊才能把車拿回來,也真不知附近這個修車行,是不是因為小女子不懂車而隨便給我找出點毛病修啊。 明明我曾經老掉牙的福特在別處做MOT時都一次過的。 所以,找一個可信的地方做MOT還是很重要的一件事。

為找到一個可以安心做MOT的地方,本文所要介紹的是由各地地方政府運營的MOT中心。

很多英國當地政府(Local Councils)有他們自己的MOT檢測站,為他們自己的車輛,如巴士或貨車做MOT,根據法律規定,這些檢測中心必須向公眾開放。由於他們一般只做測試,不做維修,所以沒有任何動機去找到任何不存在的故障達到賺錢的目的。

而 且地方政府MOT檢測站的員工也歡迎公眾,因為在地方政府普遍縮減開支的情況下,越多公眾使用便越能確保他們的工作位置。 所以一般這些MOT檢測站的公眾反饋都很好,要麼總是能通過測試,或與其它做MOT的修車廠比較需要更少的維修,而且地方政府的MOT檢測站的工作質量 往往是最好的,他們嚴格執行安全測試。

網上曾有這樣一個例子,有一個人在當地一家車廠做MOT時,被告知他的車需要花700鎊維修,他又 把車送到當地政府檢測中心,結果是無需做任何維修 就通過了,他於是把那個車廠舉報到當地的貿易標準部門(Trading Standards department),該部門把車從新測試了一次,結果又通過了MOT測試,於是他寫信給車商,以該車廠「不遵守道路交通法」(non- compliance with the Road Traffic Act)為理由要求退還他的MOT檢測費,結果車廠乖乖地退了款。

下面我們把所有收集到的英國各地當地政府經營的不做維修的MOT檢測站列表如下,您可以在您所在的地區找到離您最近的:

北愛爾蘭

在北愛爾蘭,所有的MOT檢測站都是政府辦的,都不進行維修,並有一個固定的MOT檢測費,並有一些不同的規定(例如,第一次MOT是新車四年後才需要做)。您可以從 NI Direct 網站找到更詳細的信息和離您最近的檢測站。

也有一些私人車廠僅做MOT不做維修,那麼同樣的邏輯也同樣適用。當然也有許多修車廠既做MOT也做維修,但完全是誠實和值得信任的,如果你附近有這樣的修車廠,當然是最好的。

複檢的費用

如果你的車沒有通過MOT,經過修復後,它需要被重新檢測。複檢可免費或優惠,取決於你的車第一次檢測的地方。如果你的車是在做MOT的同一個地方被修好的,在10天之內是免費複檢,如果是在其它地方修好的,通常在第二天的工作日結束時交回MOT測試中心重檢也是免費的。

如果MOT是在當地政府檢測站做的,修復是在別處做的,如果10天內回到當地政府的檢測中心做局部複檢,複檢費是半價,這個規則不僅適用於政府檢測站,實際上適用於所有檢測站。每個整MOT允許有一個局部複檢。
