Motorbike MOT

MOT tests in England, Scotland, and Wales can only be carried out by DVSA-approved testing stations and CIC Autos MOT Centre Ltd in Gateshead is such a testing station. We are also Gateshead’s leading independent garage for vehicle repairs and maintenance, so any work your car or motorbike needs before or after its MOT test can be done quickly and for a fraction of the cost of a main dealer.

MOT testing stations have this sign visible on the outside of their workshop building:

All vehicles on public roads must have an annual MOT test from three years after first registration, and CIC Autos MOT Centre Ltd perform Class 1, 2 & 4 MOT testing. This includes most cars and light commercial vehicles, including classics and vintage vehicles (with up to 8 passenger seats), motorhomes, campervans, mopeds and motorbikes. We have two testing lanes – one for two-wheeled vehicles, and the other for four-wheeled vehicles.

Moped & Motorbike MOT Testing – Class 1 & 2

  • Class 1 MOTs are required for small motorbikes (mopeds) up to 500cc.
  • Class 2 MOTs are required for all motorbikes above 50cc.

The graphic below shows the component parts and areas of your motorbike which will be inspected during its MOT test.

CIC Autos MOT Centre Ltd can normally accommodate MOT testing for customers who bring their motorbike or car in for an MOT test without booking first. We have a convenient waiting/viewing area with complimentary WiFi and refreshments, or you can book your preferred date/time below.

We charge £30 for a Class 1 or 2 MOT and £50 for a Class 4 MOT test. If your car or motorbike should fail its MOT and need a retest once work has been completed on it any retest is free. With over 40 years of experience, our team of experienced and skilled technicians have the expertise and equipment to perform any remedial work needed to get your motorbike through its MOT.
