Keeping a car on the road in the UK is an expensive proposition and you will be out of many hundreds of pounds before you even put the key in the ignition and pull away out of your drive. You must have insurance, road tax and your tank has to have some fuel in it so that you can drive around on the UK roads. If your car is over three years old, then there is another hurdle that you need to get over. It is called the MOT test and your car must pass this test in order to be legal on the road and for your insurance to be valid.
If your vehicle is coming close to its renewal date for its MOT, then you need to find a car garage in St George that can make the necessary checks and repairs if required. The following are just some of the things that they will check for in order to get your car to pass its MOT.
- The brakes are an essential part of any car and you must be able to stop quickly especially on the U.K.’s wet roads. Your mechanic will check the brake shoes, the brake pads and the brake lines.
- The UK government is very serious about pollution, especially from vehicles, and so your car and it’s engine need to pass this part of the test. Your mechanic will change the oil filters and tune the engine.
- If there are any lights on the dash of the car, these need to be investigated because your car cannot pass its MOT test if any of these lights are eliminated.
The purpose of the MOT test is to keep you and other road users safe on the United Kingdom’s roads and your car needs to pass it.
