Our MOT Station is COVID-19 secure
CNB MOTs are remaining OPEN throughout the COVID-19 outbreak in order to help provide an essential service to both key workers and non-key workers.
Last updated: 9th February 2021
We're keeping open to ensure your vehicle is safely maintained
We're all currently facing an uncertain time as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. On the 5th January 2021, Prime Minister, Borris Johnson announced that much of the UK would be faced with a national lockdown as a result of rising COVID-19 cases. As part of this measure, the public is being asked to 'stay at home' and businesses and venues have been ordered to close.
We know this means you're less likely to be needing your vehicle if you're able to work from home. This is great news, the safety of you and friends and family is the most important thing. However, for those who are unable to work from home, CNB MOTs are proud to remain open throughout lockdown. The Government are yet to disclose a detailed list of which businesses must close but we are confident that MOT Stations will remain open, much like the first lockdown. This will enable all key workers to be able to continue to travel safely by private vehicle where possible.
Customers: Please follow the measures
If you have symptoms of COVID-19:
Please DO NOT visit us.
If you have already a booking, please give us a call and we'll be able to reschedule without any charges.
Do not ask a family member from the same household to take your car instead, as you may have come into contact with each other.

Please comply with the Government guidelines and our signs in Reception, if you are visiting us during the outbreak:

We recommend a maximum of TWO persons in the Reception room, in order to maintain a 2 metres distance.

CNB MOTs are not obliged to display the NHS QR code but have volunteered to do so.
