Car MOT available at Abingdon
If your car is aged between 3 and 40 years, it should be tested annually. At Protyre Abingdon, we follow the guidelines for MOT testing which includes an extensive checklist covering an ever-increasing range of components.
An MOT certificate is a legal requirement to drive your car on the open road if it is three years old or more. The fine for driving without a valid MOT is £1000 and you won’t be able to renew your road tax until you get one. You’ll almost certainly invalidate your insurance which carries a penalty of 6-8 points and any claims you make will be invalidated. So, it pays to keep on top of your MOT.
This is a visual check only and ensures that your car is roadworthy and safe to drive. You will still need to keep on top of servicing, especially if your car fails and needs repairs. There are around 600 reasons for an MOT failure so it pays to keep your car fully serviced so that you stand the best chance of passing first time.
Car Servicing available at Abingdon
Keeping your car well maintained and regularly serviced isn’t a legal requirement, unlike an MOT. But there are some very good reasons why servicing your car is essential. The better you look after your vehicle, the longer it lasts. You’ll benefit from smoother, safer and more efficient driving and you’ll notice the difference each time you fill up at the pump.
If your car is under warranty then you’ll be expected to adhere to the servicing schedule or your cover may be invalidated. And perhaps the biggest single benefit is the price premium that attaches to a car with a full service history for optimum resale value.
Book your car in at Protyre Abingdon and our fully qualifies mechanise will carry out an oil services, interim service or a full service depending on the mileage and condition of your car. Our bronze, silver and gold car servicing packages are the smart choice when you need top-notch car servicing.
