Best place to find information and services that your council provides...

Book your Compliance Test Online

This online facility allows you to book an MOT or taxi compliance test and to check the date and time of any future inspection that has already been booked.

In order to access this system you will need to sign up on the council’s website (if you don't already have an account).

The test system will be added to the kiosks located in Wesley House reception in the coming weeks and will be available to use from 09:00 to 17:00, Monday to Friday. The St Helens Council mobile phone app will also be updated to incorporate the system.

New vehicles

If you are licensing a new vehicle you must first submit the relevant application form along with the required documentation before booking a test. Please click here for more information on new vehicles.

Cancel or reschedule an appointment

To cancel or reschedule a booking you will need to email us a minimum of 24 hours before the test is due to take place, not including weekends or bank holidays.

Failure to do so will result in the loss of your fees.

Failed tests

If your vehicle fails a test then a retest will be required within 10 working days of the initial test, otherwise another full test will then be required. In cases where a vehicle is submitted for testing with serious defects, the licence may be suspended with immediate effect until such a time as the defects are corrected. This will incur a full test.
