Use official website to book MOT - Durkan

The DOE has today issued a reminder to motorists to use the official government website to book a MOT in order to save unnecessary expense.

Environment Minister Mark H Durkan explained: “We have been made aware of a website which has been set up to take MOT bookings, charging customers a service fee of £15.00.

“All customers are advised to only book their MOT tests through NIDirect, the official government website, at where the cost of an MOT is £30.50. There is no service fee involved. Customers can find more motoring related information and services at”

NIDirect officials have alerted Trading Standards Service to the unofficial site which uses the NIDirect name.
