Once your Mercedes is 3 years old, an annual MOT is a legal requirement. This work must be undertaken by a registered VOSA tester.
Your Mercedes must be in a roadworthy condition to be driven and you must ensure that you hold a valid MOT certificate. You must also have a valid MOT test certificate to obtain vehicle tax, so it's absolutely necessary that you have an MOT completed on your Mercedes within the correct timeframe.
The earliest date at which you can present your Mercedes for testing will be printed on your current test certificate. We run full, comprehensive MOT tests that are in line with all legal requirements. Your Mercedes MOT will check:
- Lamps, reflectors and electrical equipment
- Steering and suspension
- Tyres and road wheels
- Seat belts
- Body, structure and general items
- Exhaust, fuel and emissions
- Driver's view of the road

Mercedes MOT FAQS
How often do I need to MOT my Mercedes?
If your car is over 3 years old, you will need to book it in for an MOT every year to ensure it is safe to drive. This must be done before the MOT expiration date each year.
My car failed it's MOT - can I book it in again?
If your Mercedes vehicle has previously failed it's MOT, you can book your car in for a repeat MOT after the fixes and repairs have been completed that caused the initial failure. We can offer repair services if this still needs to be completed.
Will my car pass it's MOT with a warning light?
Warning lights indicate that there is something wrong with your vehicle and as a result, mean that your vehicle will not pass its MOT if a light is illuminated.
What are the most common Mercedes MOT failures?
MOTs are designed to ensure that your Mercedes is safe to drive. Common failures you might face include incorrect headlamp alignment, poor brake performance, insufficient tyre depth, faulty lights, broken registration place lamps and worn windscreen wipers. There are many other problems that may cause failure, however, we are on hand to help you fix the issues before and following your MOT.
How long does a Mercedes MOT take?
On average, an MOT test will take between 45 minutes and an hour. We can discuss the approximate time with you prior to your appointment and give you an approximate time for pick-up when you drop your car off for its test.
How can I prepare for my MOT?
The best way to prepare for your MOT is regular maintenance throughout the year. We can provide servicing and repairs as needed, however you should also be checking your lights, tyres, fluid levels, brakes and registration plates regularly. These are all crucial to safe driving, so should be checked on a very regular basis, as well as before your upcoming MOT.

2nd Service on the 2018 E220cdi. A problem did arise as they sometimes do, however its the Customer Service you receive to rectify these upsets which counts. The guy I dealt with went out of his way with his own time and effort to resolve it, and in doing so has secured a long-term relationship with me in future business.
Took my ml 420 with oil leak, great blokes took time to talk over the problem and was in contact every step of the way when the work was being done . Great service great team and great blokes would recommend ddr to everyone with a merc .
Thank you again lads .
Our regular mechanic couldn't resolve the problem we had with our automatic gearbox on our Mercedes. If you get any messages on your dashboard use this garage they will resolve the problem. Very impressed with the level and care of service, would recommend without a doubt. Excellent!
A massive thank you to the person I dealt with and his mechanic who took the time to road test my car to check out the auto box that I had concerns with. They totally put my mind at rest with their experience and advice and as usual, I went home happy with peace of mind.
I had problems with the gearbox on my car dropping out of gear and going into park. Went on line to look for a suitable place to take it to and came across DDR’s website. Read the reviews which were very positive and drove to there site in Ashtead. After discussing the problem with them and a test drive being carried out it was arranged for me to bring the car in. Left the car and later in the day received a call to say that they were unable to duplicate the problem and suggested that I drive it more and see if the problem reoccurs. On collecting the car I asked how much I owed and the reply was”nothing as we did not fix anything”. I know of other garages that charge £60:00 to plug in the test box. Also, I was virtually leaving them a blank cheque as they could have come back and say, “Oh you need a new transmission”.
I will definitely go back to them and recommend them to anyone I know that needs good honest service. Thanks guys.
Having experienced abysmal service from a Mercedes main dealer in Surrey, I was very cautious and concerned where I’d take my E250 to next. DDR Surrey was recommended to me by a friend and I have to say that every aspect of the service I received was exemplary.
They listen to the problem I reported and managed to book the car in without too much delay. The fault was identified and subsequently reported to me with the price of repair which included parts and labour. The job incurred more time than originally expected but the price remained the same.
The politeness and professionalism from the DDR team is something that other works shops should strive towards. I will definitely be using DDR Surrey in future. Highly recommended!!
Having purchased a 2003 Convertible CLK from a trader as a present for my mother's 70th birthday I wanted a Mercedes specialist, DDR, to check it over for full peace of mind.
Initially, I was going to have the car fully serviced as I thought it had a slight misfire. Instead, on speaking with the team at DDR, they recommended that they do a full check/diagnosis and then discuss elements that actually needed doing.
It turned out that it was actually a replacement gearbox mount that needed replacing and that removed the occasional engine vibration. Of course they picked up on a few other elements which I am sure other garages would have missed.
All in all an excellent service with everything explained to me in detail - very transparent and at a reasonable price. MB main dealers could learn something from the team at DDR.
Needless to say, the car was perfect when I got back and my mother was delighted. She has already pledged to have it serviced with DDR given my feedback about them.
Thank you to the team.
Delighted to find Daniel. Have driven Mercs for 30 years and this was the best service ever.Everything explained beforehand and the car collected and returned looking immaculate and it did not break the bank.Already recommending to friends

Having to arrange serving and bespoke repairs on my E320, I was introduced to DDR by a fellow engineer,followed by two personal recommendations of the first class service and attention to detail,
Indeed the recommendation and praise by others is well deserved followed by my own for works completed to a 1st class standard,reporting on repairs, maintenance,serving in a clear understandable manner.
To say I am very very happy with service is an understatement.
