    You can't wait for a spot anymore.

    Yeah? I didn't write you get one, right?

    (Could be that they changed that a while ago. Wait time was 6 weeks or so last December. It would be a usefull suggestion to try to make a booking 3-4 month before your MOT ends, I think MOT must not be older then 3 month.)

    They did change the rules about waiting for a free spot this year.

    Is there generally a substantial waiting time for MOT tests?

    If you're willing to pay a bit more and go to the big boys you can get an MOT done within a week still. I imagine Dah Chong Hong can have you back on the road within a week. I just had mine done in a week through my new mechanic.

    My old mechanic reckoned 2 months....bye!

    If the vehicle license has expired on the vehicle, some of the TD official vehicle testing centres are running a " priority " booking for cars that have expired, that they'll book for the next Sunday ( usually ).

    But then again, the license of my car was about to run out in December this year, I booked the appointment two weeks ago and got my MOT and certificate last Saturday. I could have had it done the Saturday before ( I was there on the Monday ) but it wasnt convenient for me so I asked for a later spot. As far as I know, based on my own experience ( 3 cars ) this year, the long waits are no longer an issue.

    Find out which official TD vehicle testing centres are running 7 day work weeks ( you can get this info from the transport dept website) these are the ones that have the Sunday priority for vehicles that have expired licenses/roadtax etc.
