Vauxhall MOT Test Insurance launched

Vauxhall’s MOT Test Insurance covers owners’ cars from being put off-the-road immediately if they aren’t able to pay their repair bills straight away.

Vauxhall’s MOT Test Insurance is able to cover the cost of repairs and replacement parts up to the value of £750. This includes labour and VAT.

Vauxhall says it has launched this scheme so that failing an MOT becomes more of a minor disruption than a life-changing event if drivers aren’t able to pay their bill straight away, and their car has to be put off-road.

Vauxhall’s MOT Test Insurance package is available for up to three years, costing £75, £85 or £95 for 12, 24 and 36-month policies respectively.

The policy will be available for most Vauxhall models and car-derived vans up to seven years old, and that have less than 70,000 miles on the odometer. If the car or van is sold then the policy can be transferred to the new owner.

Vauxhall owners can apply for a policy if their car passes its MOT at a Vauxhall MasterFit retailer, where it will be covered for the next MOT. People can also apply if the vehicle has an existing MOT certificate and it’s being covered for the next MOT.

If it’s at least six month before the vehicle’s first MOT is due, or if the vehicle has been serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations then people can also apply.

It’s likely that the new Vauxhall Adam, which will be released in February 2013 from £11,255, will be eligible for Vauxhall’s MOT Test Insurance.
