Belle Vue Motorcycle Service – MOT
Belle Vue Motors is a fully authorised DVSA (formerly VOSA) MOT test centre.
We can test all makes of bikes (class 1 and 2 motorcycles) at our Honda dealership.
Don’t forget, we are open 6 days a week. (Monday through to Saturday)
Everyone who uses a vehicle on the road is required to keep it in a roadworthy condition. This is checked in the interest of road safety and the environment by the test we call the MOT. The first test is required once the motorcycle is three years old and every year thereafter.
The MOT looks at some important items on your motorcycle to see that it meets key legal requirements when it is tested. You should be aware that the MOT certificate is not a guarantee of the general mechanical condition of a vehicle.
Below you will find a detailed description of what is involved in the UK MOT test for motorcycles.
Having a good knowledge of the MOT test procedures will help you prepare your motorcycle for its MOT test.

Most of these failures can be prevented by carrying out some basic checks of your machine before you bring it to test.
