Each year, every car owner is entitled to make sure that his or her car is fit to run and is road legal through an MOT test. Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group provides some simple tips below to help you pass your vehicle’s MOT test.
Check the lights
Make sure that all the lights are working properly and are equally bright. It’s advised to touch the brake pad and see if the rear brake lights lighten the garage door and if it does, it’s in good condition. You may then flick the fog light to identify if it’s working properly or not.
Check the tyres
Check the tread depth of your tyres and if it is below 2mm, it is advised to replace them. But if your vehicle passed the MOT test with this condition, the mechanic will still put an advisory note stating to replace those tyres as soon as possible. The tyre pressure should also be at the recommended level.
Do some simple fixes in advance
An MOT test also includes checking the safety level of your car, so in order to have a seamless process during the test, it is recommended to do some simple fixes on the windscreen wipers, rear view mirror, and the wing mirrors ahead of time. Remember that the safety of the driver side view is also included in the test.
Properly clean your car
Put into mind that some mechanics refuse to give service to dirty cars, so it would be better to clean it thoroughly inside and out before it takes the MOT test.
With all those tips in mind, the process will be a lot smoother if you’re also doing a regular maintenance on your vehicle, not just when you’re taking the exam. If you’re interested, Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group can also perform an MOT test to your vehicle. It includes the assessment of both the safety of your car and the level of emissions released from the exhaust.
