Keeping a car on the road nowadays in the United Kingdom can be very expensive. The vehicle has to be taxed, insured and has to have fuel in it before you even put the keys in the ignition. A car is a necessary part of any family and without it we would be lost. It gets the kids to school in the morning and back home again. It gets us to work and back, but it must be rolled were of the as well and if your car is more than three years old, then it must go through a mandatory test every single year. If it doesn’t pass the test, then you are on the road illegally and your tax and insurance is invalid.
The test that I am referring to is called the MOT test and in order to make sure that it does pass the test first time, you need to take it to a reputable garage for an MOT service in Tamworth. The following are some of the things that they will check for you to make sure that your car is roadworthy.
- The brakes are an essential part of any car and so they will check the brake lines, the brake pads and the brake shoes for wear and tear and they need replacing or cleaned, they will do all of that for you.
- The tyres on your car need to have a certain depth of tread in order to stop you in the wet weather that we experience on a daily basis in the United Kingdom. If the tyre has insufficient tread depth then they will change them for you.
- The UK has a very strict emission testing and your car needs to pass this. Your local garage will tune the engine, change the engine oil and filter to keep the emissions at an acceptable level.
The above things and others will be checked on your car to make sure that it goes through the MOT test the first time.
