All taxis must be checked and approved before they can be licensed for use in the Falkirk Council area. As part of this, a taxi MOT must be carried out by our Fleet Services department.

For more information on taxi licensing, please visit our taxi licensing page.

We can also carry out MOTs for members of the public. These will be charged at a commercial rate.

To book your MOT, please contact us:

You can also book your MOT in person by visiting us at the test station in McCafferty Way, Grangemouth.

Payment should be made before the test is carried out. Payment can be made by:
