MOT Test cover

Exclusive to Sytner Mercedes-Benz

Designed for additional peace of mind

MOT Testing with Sytner Mercedes-Benz

Once your Mercedes-Benz has reached 3 years old, you are required by law to have an MOT test carried out every year.

By taking your car to a Sytner Mercedes-Benz Retailer, you can be sure that all work is carried out by a trained Mercedes-Benz technician.

During the MOT test, your approved tester checks that your car meets minimum acceptable road safety and environmental standards. We'll check a wide range of your car's components, such as vehicle structure, exhaust emissions, seat belts, brakes, lights, your windscreen, and more.

Remember, an MOT test is a legal requirement, and if you drive your vehicle without one it can invalidate your insurance.

MOT Test cover

The Sytner Mercedes-Benz MOT Test Cover has been designed to make sure you enjoy using your Mercedes-Benz with maximum additional peace of mind.

MOT Test cover protects the vehicle against the cost of repairing, replacing or altering various parts of the covered vehicle if cited on the Notification of refusal to issue a Certificate (VT30), as being the reason for the failure of the MOT test after the start of the cover.*
