Servicing your car not only ensures that it is in full working order keeping you on the road, but also significantly increases the resale value of your vehicle.

As a general rule of thumb, you should have an Oil and Filter Service between your main services, interim service should be done every 6 months or 6,000 miles and your full service every 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes the soonest.
The age of your car may change the frequency of the required service so it’s always best to refer to your manual for the manufacturers recommendations. On newer cars, with on-board computers, the dash will often indicate when the next service is due and what level of service is required.
All our services are carried out by our expert team who are fully ATA approved, and your service book is stamped to ensure that your service history is fully up to date.

The law states, that you must have an MOT test every year, unless your vehicle is under 3 years old, exceptions do apply for vehicles such as ambulances and taxi’s where the requirement is every year regardless of age. All tests must be completed before the old one expires.
If your MOT has expired on your vehicle then you cannot drive it on the road unless you are driving it to a pre-booked MOT test.
If your vehicle passes it’s MOT test then you will be issued an MOT certificate and your details will be updated on the national MOT database. If your vehicle fails, then you will get a notification of failure and this will also be recorded in the national MOT database and you will be unable to drive your vehicle on the road unless it is to take it to a pre-booked appointment to have any areas of failure repaired, or to another pre-booked MOT test.
During the MOT test your vehicle will be tested for: –
- Tyres and wheels
- Lighting and signalling
- Exhaust, fuel and emissions
- Windscreen and glass
- Seat Belts
- Vehicle Structure
You can book your vehicle in for a pre-MOT check at any of our branches before sending it for the actual MOT test, and identify any work that may need to be carried out for your vehicle to pass, but without having to take it off the road until any faults identified have had repairs undertaken and this can save a lot of inconvenience.
