You can now book and pay for all vehicle test appointments. You can access this system at your convenience, 24 hours a day to book and pay for compliance tests and private MOTs. Please read the following information.
The council's Vehicle Management Services (VMS), based at Turnpike House in Eccles, are delighted to offer you the chance to receive a vehicle MOT test for just £40.
All our mechanics are fully trained to provide you with an excellent and professional service.
All work is carried out to the highest of standards (identification and proof of ownership will be required on arrival).
All MOTs are on a pre-booked basis, so please book well in advance to secure your booking reservation. You will also need to bring along your log book on the date of the test.
The VMS testing garage is located at:
631 Eccles New Road
Opening times are Monday to Friday 7.45am to 3.30pm.
To book and pay for a test slot, you will need to register for an account. Some of you will already have access to the system for other appointment types we offer.
If you already have access, when you log in, you will simply have more options available to you.
If you don't have access yet you will need to register for an account and create a username and password. It is important that you remember this user name and password, as you will use this every time you want to book an appointment at VMS.
Once you are logged in to the book and pay system, you will choose the type of test you require, choose a convenient date and time, answer some questions about the vehicle you want to book in and pay the required fee. You will receive a confirmation email along with a payment receipt.
Alternatively you can call 0161 925 1042.
