  • Our teams continue to be stringent around hygiene and cleaning regimes including thorough, frequent handwashing.
  • We have also increased our cleaning measures on our MOT site, particularly for those areas touched regularly by team members and customers.
  • We are being extra vigilant on personal space and exercising social distancing as much as possible.

Please do not attend if either you or anyone in your household is symptomatic or you are in self-isolation or quarantine. Please call to re-arrange your appointment. You will not be charged for non-attendance in these circumstances.
