Intelligent Motoring announces key collaboration

Newly formed Intelligent Motoring, the parent company of MotorEasy, Motor Angel, Warranty Assist and Motokiki, has announced its first industry collaboration since launching.

Comparison website, GoCompare, has added Intelligent Motoring’s MOT Checker to its website, white-labelled to promote the GoCompare brand, adding value for its customers.

Research by GoCompare Car insurance revealed that as many as one in four people admitted missing their MOT renewal and estimates this equates to nearly eight million on-road vehicles. Recognising a need to arm motorists with convenient tools to make informed ownership decisions and make the UK’s roads safer, GoCompare joined forces with Intelligent Motoring to deliver a solution.

The GoCompare MOT Checker enables drivers to confirm the status of their MOT by simply entering their vehicle’s registration number. Crucially, the tool also gives the option for users to book an MOT through one of Intelligent Motoring’s 10,000 approved garages nationwide.

Ryan Fulthorpe of GoCompare said: “This latest addition to our comparison service means that we can help support motorists through the full car ownership journey, through one convenient and simple-to-use portal. Although drivers are expected to be responsible for the legal commitments that come with owning a car, many are unaware of what these obligations are. Indeed, our research revealed that almost one in five drivers believe that there is a grace period where they can drive their car, despite the MOT having lapsed.

“Now with our MOT Checker, our customers can make quick and easy time critical decisions and book an MOT, service or repair safe in the knowledge that the garages we promote are fully vetted for quality and value by Intelligent Motoring.”
