I understand that, in order to meet this standard, in some cases, the National Car Testing Service (NCTS) holds requests on a waiting list until a suitable slot is found.

Driver & Vehicle Agency (DVA) offers tests on a voluntary basis, but only at the request of the vehicle owner.Looking for a reliable and honest MOT test centre in Oxford?
