Great service! I was really impressed with the communication I got, the speed of service and general ease of the process of getting my car serviced and MOT'd. Good to know I don't need to find a new place to take my car anymore!

Your MOT is due three years after the date in which you registered the vehicle. You don’t need an MOT in the first three years of the car being on the road. Thereafter an MOT test is due annually.
Your MOT is a test to ensure your vehicle meets the standards set out by the DVSA. It will check window wipers, driver visibility (windscreen and mirrors), horn, seat belts, seats, exhaust, fuel system & emissions, bodywork, including doors, brakes, wheels & tyres, vehicle identification number (VIN), registration plate, lights, signalling equipment, steering and suspension.
Your MOT will expire 12 months after your last MOT. If your MOT expires, your insurance will no longer be valid.
If your vehicle fails its MOT, then you will be informed what repairs need to happen to make sure it passes and can be back on the road safely. We offer a free retest if you vehicle fails its MOT.

I have a 20 year old BMW that had a brake problem. I thought it might be terminal - too expensive to repair. Not at all! Holocene did a very affordable repair job and completed the work in a day which was great. I thought that their dealings with me were very professional, and I liked the fact that the garage itself was immaculate, this is the sign of a business that cares.
Fantastic service, quick to answer the phone, always ready to help. I was really pleased with the MOT, and my car was returned beautifully clean inside and out. It was my first time using them and will be again in the future, thank you so much!
Took my Range there after I had an accident and another garage did a really bad job. Not just did Holocene fix the job but went above and beyond with the service. I had constant updates on my car and when I picked it up it literally had that brand new showroom finish and feel. Excellent quality work for a great price! Would definitely recommend for car repairs. Thank you Holocene!
