Servicing of classic cars

Regular servicing is essential to preserve the life of your classic car. Sadly, today’s mechanics are not trained to work on heritage vehicles. Classic car servicing calls for specialist skills - skills you’ll find in abundance at Motorline Engineering. Don’t compromise - ask the specialists about servicing your car today.

Classic car MOTs

As well as repairs and servicing, Sussex-based Motorline Engineering will also manage your classic car’s annual MOT test.

MOTs for pre-1960 classic cars

In 2012, the Government declared pre-1960 cars exempt from MOTs. Despite the exemption, Motorline’s mechanics recommend all classic cars are MOT tested. By taking your car for an annual MOT, you can be sure it is roadworthy and safe to drive. Currently, 90% of Motorline’s customers still insist on their vehicles being MOT tested. If you are unsure, speak to one of the mechanics at Motorline for advice.


MOTs are an essential and legal requirement to keep you on the road safely. We are committed to providing a friendly, straightforward and honest service. You can book at a time and date that suits you.



As your vehicle’s sole point of contact with the road, it’s vital that your tyres are properly fitted and in good condition. Motorline can provide a free tyre health check and replace any worn tyres.



Are strange rattling noises or a failed emissions test keeping you off the road? Car clutch feel unusual or like there's something wrong? We'll provide you with a free, no-obligation quote upfront.



Although rare, accidents on the road do happen, and even minor scratches and dents can be a great inconvenience for those involved. Motorline is available to assist whenever you need us,
