Thanks for the reply lags

The MOT runs out on the 12th June.

Is there any particular reason for having the belt changed after the MOT? I had planned to have it Serviced in preparation for the MOT, then MOT'd on top. The reason for this is that my Mum has done it with her cars in the past so that any issues that may fail it on the MOT might be found in advance and fixed to save having to re-take it's MOT. She hasn't had a fail yet...touch wood

Also, what sort of price should I be looking at for a Service and MOT? A ball-park figure would help me to walk away if a price is too high
