    MOT Garage Recommendations

    Hi,

    Had a bit of a search but it threw nothing up.

    I am looking for recommendations of MOT garages around Eastleigh/Southampton that will do a decent job of my '66 F100
    i.e. not fail it on something it shouldn't (or pass it on something it should!)

    Looking for something reasonably close by - as it doesn't currently have an MOT so I'm not sure how many miles "I'm driving it to the test centre" covers.


    Thanks for any suggestions
    Dean

    LEEMAC garage in Havant ! i know its a bit of a journey but im sure that the law allows you to book an MOT anywhere as long as you go straight there and back !! Lee is not the type of guy who would fail it on a wiper blade or bulb being blown etc etc he has owned some nice classics in his time . super big MOT area and you can watch it up close being done
