Buying an MOT Business: The Basics

The Ministry of Transport test, or MoT test, has been in existence for more than 50 years; every year, more than 30 million cars in the UK are subjected to an annual MOT, and it’s big business for the thousands of MOT garages that operate across the nation.

When you buy an existing MOT garage, you can buy the MOT testing equipment, premises and the shares of the company, but you cannot buy the Authorised Examiner (or AE) status that’s required to legally carry out MOT tests; AE status cannot be transferred to a new owner upon the sale of a business, and must be applied for afresh. You can learn more about this on the GOV.UK website

When considering the purchase of an MOT garage, check what kind of MOTs the garage is set up to carry out. 

  1. Can it handle all kinds of vehicles, or is it equipped to MOT family cars or commercial vehicles? 
  2. How old is the testing equipment, and is it owned outright or has it been secured on a hire-purchase arrangement? 
  3. How big is the customer list, and what is the churn rate (ie the number of new customers using the garage versus the number of customers leaving the garage to purchase their MOT elsewhere)? 
  4. What does the local competition charge? Are the other MOT garages in the area specialising in different vehicle types, or is everyone competing for the same business?

If you are an experienced MOT tester, and if you have held senior positions in garages in the past, you may be able to increase the number of retained customers and increase your profits.

In order to generate significant income from your MOT garage, you might want to offer a series of peripheral products that complement the core MOT business. Check if the business you’re buying is already set up to sell shock absorbers, spark plugs and other small parts that might cause a car to fail their MOT, and find out if the current team can carry out a full service at the same time as an MOT, allowing you to sell combined service packages to your clients: the more you can up-sell your customers while they’re on the forecourt, the more money you can take and the better your chances of success.
