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: 28th April 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. 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, your friends and your family is the most important thing.

For those who are unable to work from home, CNB MOTs are proud to have remained open through the previous and any future lockdowns. 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 follow the latest guidelines provided by the Government. 

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

  • Please ​wear a face-mask before entering our Reception.

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

  • If there are already two persons in the Reception, please wait outside and make yourself known to a member of staff.
