Whatever the weather, there is never a bad time to book your car in for a free Protyre seasonal safety check. This six-point check is designed to help you avoid some of the most common car problems and drive on the road with confidence.
What your free health check covers
- Wiper blades
- Oil level
- Windscreen washer fluid
Why is a health check important?
A regular health check is a great way of giving you the peace of mind that your car is roadworthy. It also allows us to flag up any issues, whether they are urgent or will need attention in the future - perhaps at your next full service.
We use a traffic light system to let you know the result of our inspection:
- Green means your car is good to go
- Amber flags up issues that need attention but are not urgent
- Red means a component needs urgent attention
Making sure you are legal
Your free health check also ensures that your vehicle is legally compliant, which is why we check lights, visibility and tyres – three of the biggest fails in your MOT. We will check for faulty or burned out bulbs so that they can be replaced. We will look at your wiper blades to make sure they properly clear your windscreen and don't leave it smeared and messy; if necessary, we will even top up your windscreen washer fluid. We will give your battery a full health check to see whether it needs replacing so you don't get stuck, and we will check your oil level to make sure everything is functioning just as it should be. Finally, we will check the tread of your tyres to make sure they are legally compliant and inflated to the correct pressure.
When does my car need a health check?
You can book in for your free Protyre health check at any time, but it is a useful tool especially when your car is due its MOT or between services. It can help you to identify any potential fails, put them right, and prepare you for issues that may come up in your annual service so that you don't get any nasty surprises.
Can anyone book a Protyre health check?
Regardless of whether you are a Protyre customer, you can book a free health check – or any of our other free checks – online at any time.
How long will my vehicle health check take?
A typical check takes around 15-20 minutes.
What if the health check shows my car needs work?
Unless you have given us your express permission to undertake any necessary remedial work, we will not carry out any work on your car.
Can you carry out the work if necessary?
As the local garage you can trust, we pride ourselves on being able to carry out any repairs - from minor to major - as quickly as possible. We usually have parts such as wiper blades and bulbs in stock, so we can have your car legally compliant and back on the road in no time.
