Servicing & MOT

Why servicing important to your vehicle?

Regularly servicing your car can make the difference between it running smoothly and getting the best fuel efficiently or the risk of it breaking down and incurring an expensive repair. It can be a false economy to avoid regular car servicing, since expected wear and tear requiring minor maintenance, can fast become a costly major repair or replacement. The service schedule for your vehicle will depend on the manufacturer and also depend on the car’s mileage and age.

What’s involved in an MOT?

The mechanic will typically work through a standard checklist that includes your:

  • registration plate
  • lights
  • steering and suspension
  • wipers and washers
  • windscreen
  • horn
  • seat belts and seats
  • doors
  • mirrors
  • wheels and tyres
  • brakes
  • fuel system
  • exhaust system
  • vehicle emissions
