MOT's & Services

MOT's are essential for any car owner. Without a valid MOT certificate, your car isn't road legal. If your car has been on the road for more than three years, it is required by law that the car undergo an annual MOT test. Without a valid MOT certificate you will not be able to insure your car or pay any road tax on your vehicle. This means that you will not be able to use it on public roads.

Whilst MOT's are integral to keeping your car on the road, services are also vital to your cars health and performance. There are three types of services that your car will need. These are:

  • Basic Car Service: The basic car service is also known as an 'interim' or 'bronze' service. Designed for high mileage drivers that cover around 20,000 miles or more a year that could require more than one annual service.
  • Full Car Service: The full car service can also be known as 'silver' or 'intermediate'. Recommended every 12 months or 12,000 miles. This is ideal for drivers that have a low annual mileage and will.
  • Major Car Service: A major service, also referred to as 'Gold' or 'Master' is recommended every 24 months or 24,000. The major service is one of the most comprehensive service packages available.
