Most families in the United Kingdom have at least one car to assist with their day to day living and a car is something that most people cannot do without. It gets our kids to school on time and it gets us to work also. Most days in the UK are either windy, wet or both and going to do the weekly shop can be a nightmare if you don’t have suitable transport. As much as we need them, a car can be an expensive thing to keep on the road. There is the tax, and insurance payments and that’s before you even get in, to drive. In the UK, your car must be deemed roadworthy to be on British roads and for that it must pass its MOT.
To make life a little easier, there is MOT testing in Hamilton to assist with getting your car back on the road as soon as possible. Your local car servicing garage needs to do the following to get it to pass.
- The brakes on your car need to be perfect. Your local mechanic will check the brake shoes, the pads and the brake lines to make sure that they are up to code.
- Emissions are a big deal in the MOT test and your car cannot be above a certain level or it will fail. Your local mechanic can tune the engine for lesser emissions.
- Tyres need to be good enough to stop you safely on the road and there is a specific tyre depth that must be met. Your mechanic will check for uneven wear on the walls of your tyres.
Without a current MOT test, your car cannot be on UK roads and your insurance will be deemed as invalid until you get one.
