Cheap Mot,s don't always turn out to be cheap, they are cheap to get you in and then try to get work from it. Try Ray Street, 0151 639 9976. 35 no retest fee, a very fair and honest bloke. Old Gorsey lane, dock Rd Wallasey.

Village charged a costumer of mine 45 to fit a headlight bulb in an old Corsa, told her they had to remove the headlight to do it. Outrageous !

Mike Hurst did my MOT about 4 Months ago and charged 45 with no retest fee.
Just make sure that your car does not have any minor defaults as they will spot them and fail you on them!
They failed me on Tiny splits on Front Window wiper's, Registration plate light bulb (needed changing) and high Emissions.
To be fair tho, they are thorough and passed the car the next day within 10 minutes after i had sorted some new wipers, bulb and threw a bottle of cataclean in the tank and gave the car a good rag on the New Ferry bypass a few times.

I was daft enough to get the Nissan dealer on Woodchurch road to do mine, he called me to say it would fail as I have a break-light bulb out (also told me I had the centre break-light bulb out but this was not a fail) . I told him to go ahead and change them .... fool that I am. The bulbs cost 1.75 each (plus VAT) the only problem being their minimum labour charge for work done is 1/2 an hour PER JOB so they charged me 16.00 (plus VAT) per bulb, it therefore cost me 45.00 + for two bulbs. They lost a customer that day.

That's sharp practice. It seems to me that the "job" was to change two bulbs. However, their labour rates seem ridiculously low for a main dealer, 32 per hour + VAT = 38.40. My local main dealers charge more than double that. Using your figures, the total bill should have been 42.60, not 45.00+

got mine done at uplands, manor drive today, 47 with no retest fee. Passed my 15 year old car with no faults or advisories, but I suppose I did swap out most of the suspension on it last year.

Tried going to cheaper places but they usually end up costing you more in silly little extras like wiper blades (that they like to sell you).
