Punters Garages: tips to help you pass the MOT!
Punters Garages offer an ‘on demand’ service, with a pleasant environment while you wait for
your car to be MOT tested. HavingH an MOT is an anxious time for motorists, but it needn’t be as bad as it seems, and at Punters Garages we make it as easye as possible for our customers. For example, blown light bulbs are a major cause of MOT failures – so, as a special service t to MOT customers, we replace blown bulbs charging only for the cost of the bulbs – then and there. The same applies to wiper b blades and defective windscreen washers if the problem is simple to solve like a blocked pipe, or topping up the water. IfI you’re unlucky, and your car fails, we’ll give you a really good price to get it fixed with an MOT pass…
YetY there’s a lot our customers can do to reduce the likelihood of an MOT failure. Here’s a helpful check list: • Check that all the lights work, you’ll have to get somebody to stand behind the car to check that the brake lights are
working – and don’t forget the hazards and number plate lamps! • Check the wiper blades, any significant splits or breaks in the rubber means a fail. Do the washers work, properly
clearing the screen? • Do the seat belts ‘clunk-click’ properly? Are they frayed anywhere? Slowly pull the belt out of the inertia reel to
check. • Are any rear view mirrors cracked or broken? That could also be a failure. • Do the car’s wheel rims have any serious ‘kerb’ damage? If so it could fail – but is the spare OK?
We would change that over for you. • Have a look at the tires – are there bald patches? That too would be a failure. Again, what’s your spare tire like? ItI is illegal to drive a car without a valid MOT – and you can’t get it taxed either. So, to help motorists, the Government allow you tot drive to and from an MOT Testing Station without road tax and MOT, provided you have booked it in with the MOT Station in advancea – but you must be insured!
AtA Punters Garages we want to help you get that precious MOT pass as quickly and easily as possible – giveg us a call, I’m sure we can help…
