With summer now looking as if it is over, it’s time to start preparing for Autumn and winter, which can bring rain, ice and snow, especially on the roads around Bristol. These weather changes can be treacherous and make driving conditions difficult and dangerous, which is why keeping your car in fully working condition is especially important. At AP Autocare in Brislington, we are fully DVSA qualified which means every car MOT we complete, you can be sure that it is legitimate meaning your car is safe and legal to drive on the roads.
There are many points which our qualified mechanics must check on your car during a MOT to see whether they are in fully working order and not making your car a risk to drive on the roads. Some major points are:
Some faults, such as emissions, you will not notice unless you are a trained mechanic. Others can be avoided from failing by performing simple maintenance. If you are unsure as to what to do, we recommend bringing your car in to our service centre in Brislington for a service every 6 months or 12,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Our mechanics will assess your car and all the aspects that the MOT will also pick up on, and evaluate their condition. They will then advise you if you require any repairs or replacement parts. Read more about our car servicing here or call us today on 0117 963 8916.
The DVSA have set out a minimum standard that each component must meet. If a component passes but one of our trained mechanics believes that it requires repairing, they will give it an advisory. You will receive an MOT slip after the test so you are able to discuss the result once it has been completed with one of our highly experience mechanics.
