The autocentre expects business to accelerate after its premises, equipment and technicians were certified to carry out MOT testing by the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
The certification means the autocentre is now able to offer most levels of MOT testing to local motorists, including levels three and four, covering all private vehicles. Confirmation comes at an important time for Quick Lane, as MOT enquiries typically spike in March and September each year. This coincides with annual new vehicle registrations.
David Kennedy, operations manager at Quick Lane Bracknell, commented: “We’ve been encouraged by the levels of business we have already done in Bracknell, the majority of which has come from passing trade on the estate. Our ability to service all makes and model of vehicle both conveniently and professionally, coupled with our mission to offer a fair exchange to every motorist, is making us popular in the local area.
“Our seven-bay facility is the result of a significant financial investment in Bracknell and MOT certification will play a key role in our future growth plans.”
As Quick Lane prepares for a busy period in early 2020, it is urging local motorists not to leave their MOT to the last minute, as this can prove problematic in March when test centres are historically busy.
David Kennedy continued: “Some drivers don’t realise that they can have their car tested up to a month before their MOT expires and still keep the same anniversary. It is worth considering bringing a vehicle in earlier to ensure it gets its MOT on time. During quiet periods, it’s even possible to book an MOT on the same day.“
