3 Things Your Mechanic Will Check For When Your Vehicle Is Due Its MOT.


You can spend every weekend out there in your drive or on the street, washing, polishing and waxing your car until the cows come home, but no matter how good it may look, it is what is going on under the bonnet and under the car that really matters. If your car is over 3 years old, then it must go through its MOT test every year to make sure that it is roadworthy and if it doesn’t pass every single part of that, then you can’t drive it legally on UK roads. This is where a competent mechanic comes in.

You can find a qualified car mechanic in Weymouth and as part of the MOT test, he can perform the following necessary services for your vehicle.

  1. The braking system of your car is so important and so he will check the brake pads, brake shoes, discs and the brake lines underneath the car. If any of these are not 100%, then your car will fail.
  2. The emissions test is also another thing that your vehicle must pass. Your local mechanic will change the oil and filter for your engine and tune it properly, so that it runs better. This will help with cleaner emissions.
  3. All the lights on the car must be working and that is both inside and outside the car. Headlights, tail lights, indicators and dash lights must all be functioning properly.

Your local mechanic is what stands between your car passing and failing the MOT test. Be sure to let him give your car the once over.
