Electric Car MOTs Chepstow

Just like regular petrol and diesel cars, electric cars and vehicles require an MOT test annually after they are 3 years old.

However, due to the high voltage battery and charging point found within electric cars, the process is different and should not be completed without specialist training and equipment. Because of this, electric car drivers are often forced to use dealerships which are usually expensive and lack a personal service.

At Autocare Centre Chepstow, we offer a complete electric vehicle MOT service and offer a free retest if any remedial work is carried out with us. Call us today on 01291 627 137 to book your MOT.

  • How Often Does an Electric Car Need An MOT?

  • What is Involved in an Electric Car MOT?

    Your electric car is logged onto the official MOT test system. Unlike regular vehicles however, electric cars have no transmission fluids, engine oil or emissions and so skip these steps in the MOT process. The following checks are then carried out:


    • All lights are tested to ensure optimum visibility.
    • safety features such as windscreen wipers, seatbelts and chips in the windscreen are checked.
    • The steering system, suspension and tyres are checked for damage.
    • A brake test is carried out to determine whether the brake pads need repairing/replacing.
    • The electrical systems of the car including its battery health and electric motor will be checked to make sure they are operating safely.
