My (to be) 4 year old IS250 is due an MOT shortly, it still has 2 years Lexus warranty.

Getting the car to Lexus is a bit of a pain but I was wondering what my best option is. There's a local garage I could use.

not had a car needing an MOT for the past 11 years so any advice/experiences would be appreciated.

I use a local garage that was initially recommended by friends as being honest and not likely to rip me off, my advice is to ask friends who have "older" cars

To help prevent a garage trying it on with unecessary work/charges, does your local authority have a test center nearby?

I test station that doesn't carry our repairs is the best option if you don't have a local garage you trust

Good-o, let us know how you get on.

I was seriously tempted to try one a few days ago but instead opted for a local garage. They have a good reputation and it worked out nicely for me.

Our local bus company, Preston Bus, does MOTs but not repairs, as does our local ambulance service garage. I don't know if Police or Fire Service garages do them but given that Ambulance do, I'd say it's worth a call to find out.

Got mine done last week at a local garage (within walking distance of home) - I've used them for several years for several vehicles - £35. (The max price these days is £54.95 - lots of places discount that, but you do need to be aware of those who attempt to con you with unnecessary advisories - no advisories on my certificate)
