Keith Faulds Motor Engineer is a certified MOT testing Station in Dumfries. An MOT is an annual test of vehicle safety and roadworthiness aspects required by law in the UK, for most vehicles over three years old.
The MOT certificate confirms that at the time of the test, without dismantling it, the vehicle met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. Any vehicle that is over three years old is required to have a valid MOT test certificate renewed annually.

When does my car need an MOT?
Everyone who uses a vehicle on the road must keep it in a roadworthy condition. The MOT test checks that vehicles meet road safety and environmental standards. The first MOT test for a vehicle is required when it’s three years old.
What’s not covered in my MOT?
The MOT certificate confirms that at the time of the test, without dismantling it, the vehicle met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. It doesn’t mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the length of time the certificate is valid. The MOT certificate is also no guarantee of the general mechanical condition of your vehicle. The test doesn’t cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox.
Why choose Faulds for my MOT?
Faulds is a certified MOT testing station and Authorised Examiner (AE) meaning we are verified by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
What’s the difference between an MOT and a service?
An MOT is a mandatory test of your vehicle’s roadworthiness; a service follows detailed guidelines, set out by the vehicle manufacturer, and is designed to keep your car in peak condition throughout the year.
Broken spring late Friday. Back on the road just after lunch on Saturday. Well done and thanks to Keith and the team. Much appreciated squeezing me in.D. Shannon
Brilliant straightforward experience. Class 7 mot for van. Great staff, great clean garage, nice waiting area. Will be back next year.G. Scott
First class service, popped in today with a friend who is visiting and had a problem with her car. They told us to leave the car and they would try and get time to look at it. An hour later they called to say they’d fixed the problem. Thank you so much.L Davies
