The Ministry of Transport test (more usually known as an MOT) is a legal requirement for all vehicles over 3 years old, with the purpose of making sure that your car meets the minimum safety requirements. Without a valid MOT, your car insurance and road tax become invalidated and your car may not be road worthy. Therefore it's important that you make sure your MOT certificate is in date and you book your next MOT before your current certificate expires.

Tyres are a very important part of your vehicle, having a good set of tyres on your car is very important and a legal requirement. The minimum legal tread depth is 1.6mm, however we advise and recommend you changing your tyres at 2mm. As the tread depth reduces, the tyre's ability to remove water from the road surface reduces, increasing the risk of aquaplaning because the tyre is unable to transmit traction and braking forces to the road as effectively. Therefore the vehicle's stopping distance increases. Please pop in at Newtown garage for a FREE TYRE SAFETY CHECK.
