WhoCanFixMyCar explains how much Skoda MOTs cost, including the average price across different models.

Known for its practicality, Skoda is a Czech car manufacturer that is very popular on British roads, with models like the Fabia having been around since 1999. 

Skoda models are generally affordable to buy and are pretty reliable too, though when things do go wrong with them they tend to be more expensive to fix than on some similar cars from other manufacturers.

As such, whether you’re a die hard Skoda fan or are just looking to test the waters, it’s helpful to get a clear picture of the overall maintenance costs you can expect to face. In this guide, we’re going to focus on the price of MOT testing - that annual necessary evil - across different Skoda models.

AutoTrader has called the Skoda Kodiaq “a rare beast”, and one thing that certainly is rare about it is the surprisingly affordable price of an MOT test, costing just £35.31. 

Hats off to the Skoda Kodiaq; this is one of the cheapest prices across any of the popular car manufacturers we’ve looked at in this guide series so far. What’s even more surprising, for those who aren’t aware, is that the Kodiaq is a large SUV, so you might have expected it to cost more than, say, the Skoda Fabia. 

Combine its cheap MOT price with the fact that the Kodiaq won ‘Best Seven Seater’ in the 2017 Auto Trader New Car Awards, and it’s clear that this SUV is really something special.

The second most affordable model for an MOT is the Skoda Octavia, which costs £39.55 on average and comes as a hatchback or estate. It is also the brand’s best selling model worldwide, which helps to explain why in recent years Skoda have moved upmarket with the Octavia, introducing a classy interior with soft touch materials and also increasing the size of the car.

Skoda Superb

The Skoda Superb (pictured above) is the most expensive model with an average price of £41.66. It comes as a large five-door hatchback or an estate car complete with a seriously big boot. Overall, the Superb offers great value for money considering its sheer size and well equipped interior, so we can overlook a slightly more expensive MOT price.

After the Superb, the Karoq is the next most expensive model for an MOT at £40.49. This medium SUV is Skoda’s answer to the Peugeot 3008, Nissan Qashqai and VW Tiguan. With a smooth, torquey engine and an attractive exterior design, the extra couple of pounds you’ll be paying every year for an MOT might just be worth it.
