    St Helens MOT Centre
    St.Helens, Merseyside council MOT centre is missing from the list on the article:

    The MOT station, based at the Hardshaw Brook depot in Parr Street, is open Monday to Friday, 7:30am -4:00pm.

    Tel: 01744 676753.

    The test costs 40 for both cars (class 4) and light commercial vehicles (class 7) and if a vehicle fails and a retest is needed, there will be no charge for a retest.

    South East London "council MOT tester"

    Deptford, London
    193-197 Edward Place, Deptford, London, SE8 5HD

    0208 691 9827

    I'm planning to take my car to the Deptford branch as it nearest to me. I used to get a local chap to do it but I think as it's test only I should bite the bullet & take it myself (plus I'm not working currently so have time & need to save as much s as poss).
