Car MOT & Servicing

Book Your Car Service

We recommend that you book your vehicle in for a service at least every 12 months or every 12,000 miles, or whichever comes first. This is in line with most manufacturers servicing schedules. If your car is ready for a service, use our garage finder to search for a garage near you.

We know that many motorists search for a garage that is not only near them, but their primary concern is to trust their local garages not to do more work than needed and to provide a quality service.

We have over 650 garages so you’re bound to find a garage near you.

As a brand, we operate nationally throughout the country and our network is constantly growing. We have members in most places throughout the UK, which means you’re never far away from a trusted local specialist. Each garage satisfies strict criteria of high standards of workmanship and the technicians only use the best quality parts when it comes to servicing your car. When you book your car in through our simple to use website, you can have peace of mind that it will be taken care of and that all work carried out will be to the highest of standards.

Our servicing technicians regularly attend accredited training courses to ensure they master the latest vehicle technologies, meaning that whatever the make and model of your car, your local garage will know how to service it.

Government legislation now means that no matter how new your vehicle is, you can have it serviced wherever you like and not invalidate your warranty, provided all parts fitted are of the necessary quality standard. When you book through us, all services are carried out using only first class parts and lubricants, so you can rest assured that your vehicle is in safe hands.

We will always inform you and advise if the technicians find anything wrong with your car during the service. Any extra work needed is only carried out prior to your authorisation. As a trusted garage scheme, we always respect agreed deadlines, always respect the price indicated in the quote and always provide you with a clearly laid-out invoice so that you know exactly what you are paying.

Don’t leave your service to chance - leave it to the experts!

Book Your MOT Test

If your car is 3 years old or more you are required, by law, to book your car in for an MOT test.

The MOT test ensures that your vehicle is in a roadworthy condition and meets environmental standards as outlined by the Government/DVLA. If your vehicle passes its MOT, it has met the minimum road safety and environmental standards as required by law and receives a pass certificate which lasts for 12 months. However, this does not mean your car is roadworthy for the length of validity of the MOT certificate. The Certificate surprisingly does not guarantee the general mechanical condition of your vehicle and the MOT test itself does not cover the engine, gearbox or clutch.

The MOT should not be treated as a substitute for regular maintenance. The MOT certificate is simply a paper receipt of the MOT and shows the information which has been entered onto a secure central database by those who tested your vehicle. MOTs are regulated by Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) the following areas are checked to ensure they meet legal standards.

Here are the key MOT Test checks our garage will carry out:

  1. Seatbelts
  2. Seats
  3. Exhaust system
  4. Exhaust emissions
  5. Fuel system
  6. Doors
  7. Mirrors
  8. Brakes
  9. Tyres & Wheels
  10. Lights
  11. Registration plate

Remember, it is illegal to drive on a public road if the vehicle does not have a valid MOT certificate, unless:

  1. You are taking the vehicle to a test station where an advance MOT booking has been made
  2. You are taking your vehicle away from where it failed its MOT and driving to a place for it to be repaired.
  3. You are driving to a place where an advanced booking has been made, to have the components which caused your vehicle to fail its MOT repaired.
  4. You are taking your car away from a place where it has just been repaired.
