A pleasant surprise
My trusty Suzuki Ignis was due its MOT at the end of this month and as I will be away in the UK at the time it is due I decided to be organised (for a change) and get it done early. This is the first time I have ever ventured into the “men’s world” of MOT testing stations, and I was absolutely dreading it, particularly if they were going to tell me anything technical as I have trouble understanding that in English, let alone in Greek!
There are two MOT testing stations, one near to Aqualand and a new, privately run one near to the airport, more or less at the end of the runway. Really easy to find – I drove up the driveway, and was met by a very polite gentleman who took my relevant documents and directed me into the office. The secretary then did her stuff, took my fifty euros and gave me all my documents back. There is a comfortable lounge with a TV, where you can watch your car being examined through the large windows onto the testing bay. Amazing! Ten minutes later I was outside with my new MOT certificate, and I even managed to understand that the only thing I need are two new back tyres – not surprising considering the amount of mileage I do and the rough tracks I regularly drive along.
K.T.E.O. is open from 8.00 am till 6.00pm on weekdays, and from 8.00 am till 2.00pm on Saturdays, and you can make an appointment on 26610 26610.
