- Once a vehicle is three years old, a valid MOT is required by law. This MOT must be renewed every year. Driving without one could lead to a £1000 fine. At our workshop we have a team of experienced and well qualified testers ready to perform a fast and satisfactory service on any class 4,5 or 7 vehicle.

experienced and highly skilled team, backed by fantastic Bosch
equipment, training and parts. We are more than ready to take on any
servicing, maintenance and repair work you may require.
- Having a tyre tread of under 1.6mm is illegal and you could be penalised
with 3 points on your license. As well as a potential penalty, illegal tyres
significantly increase the chances of an accident. Government figures
estimate that illegal tyres are linked to thousands of casualties every year.
Therefore it is very important to check tyre tread, especially on part worn tyres.
Whilst a new tyre with typically have 8mm over 100% of the tread, a part worn
tyre will often have between 2 to 3 mm across most of the tread, leaving very
little time before the tyres become both illegal and unsafe.
Research carried out by Birmingham Trading Standards found that 90% of part
worn tyres bought were in fact illegal
- Whilst brakes are checked every time your car is serviced and when it goes
for its MOT Test, additional problems may arise.
It is of course extremely unsafe to drive with faulty brakes and so if you feel
any issues with your vehicles current braking system.
Air Conditioning and Ragas

almost nothing worse than having no control over your vehicle’s Air Conditioning.
Everything under the bonnet is tangible, but air quality and comfort is a little
harder to put your finger on. You definitely notice it when it’s not there, but it’s not
always an easy fix. Before the summer heat or the winter chill gets to you, make

and inspect your vehicle’s cooling system to make sure you’re in control of your
cabin comfort. Our auto A/C repair services are complete and effective. When

only lasts a day or two.
