MOT Testing Halifax Yorkshire UK; Many types of Mot testing sites
The Calder valley is a part of West Yorkshire in the UK. It has long traditions of farming and trading in the Woollen industry, stretching back for centuries. The terrain is of rolling hills synonymous with its location in the south of the Yorkshire Pennines. This July we will be honoured to host the Tour De France cycling race in the Calder valley.
It stretches from Halifax to the East to Todmorden in the West. The main road that connects the small towns on the route run along the river Calder, hence the nickname of the Calder valley. The main traditional trades were sheep farming and a thriving garage business sprung up primarily to repair farm machinery and the tractor belonging to the farmers.
Over the years, these family-owned garage businesses kept up with the times by starting to repair the emerging motor car trade, and a thriving garage business sprung up in all the small towns along the Calder valley. Old established garages such as Ports garage near Todmorden and Star garage in Hebden bridge, to name but a few.
These small wool towns became very popular with modern day tourists and soon the area became very popular for people to move here and live. The whole thing started in the 1960s when a large “hippy” movement began the build up in the Hebden Bridge area and a large population of immigrants moved to Halifax to work in the mills. All this increase in the population meant that the service industries also started to grow. This included garages and many of these garages sprung up all over the area. With the advent of the faster, cars became the DVLA MOT Rules Testing system that we now have across the whole of the UK.
Now you could get MOT Testing in many small towns.

Many of these small towns were geared up with the correct equipment to carry out MOT TESTING.
