Default Trike Mot Stations

I get my Trike mot,d at GATE GARAGE in Caldewgate Carlisle Cumbria they are pretty thorough though. Now I have found a far better MOT station in Lockerbie.which I will be using in the future..

Default mot

I get my mot from Worcester and District Motor Co , Kidderminster ,DY11 7YL
They are fare but do the job right.

So if the basics are right and the trikes safe to be on the road you will get a pass. If it fails you get the advice you need to bring it up to the standard
required, should you need it.

RE-THINK,
THE GUY AT GATE GARAGE IN CARLISLE IS A TWAT HE WANTED TO FAIL MY BUSA COZ THE NUMBER PLATE FONT HAD A SLIGHT SHADOW EFFECT EVEN ALTHOUGH THE SIZE WAS RIGHT ETC, I SAID I WOULD GET A PLATE FITTED AS SOON AS I GET AWAY FROM WORK IN THE SAME AFTERNOON AS I HAD TRAVELLED 20mls TO THE GARAGE IN THE PISSING RAIN AND HE SAID NO SO I SAID I DID,NT WANT HIM TO GO ANY FURTHER WITH THE MOT AND I TOOK THE TRIKE HOME, (AT LEAST HE DID,NT GET PAID FOR A FAILURE HE HE)

SO IVE FOUND A REALLY DECENT GUY IN LOCKERBIE WHO IS FAR MORE SENSIBLE AND DOES,NT KEEP TELLING YOU HOW BRILLIANT HE IS AND THAT HE IS THE ONLY ONE IN THE AREA WHO CAN MOT TRIKES YAWN YAWN.IVE INFORMED ALL MY TRIKING MATES OF THIS NEW BLOKE AND THEY ALL NOW USE HIM.

Nocking MOT stations for not letting thing go like number plates, is in my mind
shit. the mot guy is piggy in the middle. If they pass a substandard unit and its an inspection/standards check on the establishment bang goes his licence. Be sensible if a simple thing like a number plate dont comply. Put a compliant one on for the test and dont insult the bloke. What is changed after the test dose not damage his living.

Finchampstead MOT Centre,
Unit F
Weller Drive
Wokingham
RG40 4 QZ

01189 733465

Took my trike here today, I was like an expectant father as I was unsure as to what would happen (1st time Ive had to put a trike thro).
The guy there was very helpful and informative and only pulled me up on stuff I guessed he would (frayed handbrake cable/wheels out of arches) but only put them down as advisory.
He was happy for me to have a look underneath etc while it was up on the ramps and found a wheel hub nut a little loose and tightened it there and then fitting a new R clip for free and giving me a matching one for the other side.

Pretty sensible chap at this testing station.

Medland Motors
63 Edge Lane
Liverpool
L7 2PD

M62 into Liverpool, continue on the dual carriageway (Edge Lane) towards the city. After about three miles there is a Texaco petrol station on your right, Medland motors is behind it.
