MOT providers in Winchester UK area
« on: 06 August, 2020, 05:40:46 PM »
Hi - I need to get the bike MOT'd. As this is my first bike I don't have a favoured MOT centre. Can anyone recommend a decent no bulls**t MOT test and general bike service outfit near Winchester, Hants, UK ?

Cheers.

Just have a ride around and check a few out. Rule out the main dealers with their eat your fish n chips off their workshop floors and avoid the independents with their you'd rather not soil the soles of your boots on their workshop floors. Take a punt on something in between. Remember a dealer is a dealer whether they be a main dealer or an independent they're all out to complete whatever job their doing in the least amount of time and if a corner can be cut as sure as eggs are eggs it will be. Once you become a recognisable repeat customer you'll feel more comfortable with them, its all about familiarity.

edit: If they're not offering MOT's likely is they're not qualified - look elsewhere

Thanks Art. I,m no spring chicken and I've been around this block with cars but never a bike so was hoping to zero in on a few options. But, sage advise and wryly put so thanks. :123:
