Motest is open, to help NHS staff and other key workers & businesses maintain their vehicle safety

"We must ensure those on the frontline of helping the nation combat COVID-19 are able to do so - Safety is key, which is why garages will remain open for essential repair work."

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps

Which is why we are open, and ready to help with discounts to say THANK YOU

The above discounts aren't shown on the website. Simply make a booking as usual, and upon arrival at our branch, let our staff know that you work for the NHS or are a key worker and your discount will be applied without fuss.

This program is available from Mon - Fri (9am-4pm) at the following branches;

Aldershot, Bexhill**, Bracknell, Brighton**, Camberley**, Eastleigh, Epsom, Farnham, Hemel, Hillingdon, Lewes**, Reading, Tonbridge**, Swindon, Worthing**

Naturally the safety of customers and staff is paramount so we have strict practices in place, on protection, handling keys, credit cards only, distancing and our reception is closed off. All we would ask is that the cars interiors are tidy and clear of any drinks, foodstuffs and general detritus.

Obviously staying open is all subject to change but we hope that this service can be offered to those who need it for the foreseeable future.

If you are not a key worker, please don't make unnecessary trips to our garage - only seek our help if the requirement is critical

*Class 7 testing at Eastleigh, Epsom, Farnham, Swindon, Tonbridge branches only

** Also open Saturday mornings until 1.00pm
