NEW figures released by VOSA, the government body that oversees MOT tests, show that of the 8.1 million MOT failures
NEW figures released by VOSA, the government body that oversees MOT tests, show that of the 8.1 million MOT failures last year, a significant proportion were caused by easy-to-spot issues. These range from blown bulbs and worn tyres to faulty windscreen wipers and low fluid levels.
By forewarning the dealership of any required work in advance of the MOT, motorists can give their vehicle the best chance of passing the test first time around.
Every car-maker in the UK is participating with technicians at manufacturer main dealerships ready and able to assist customers who might be unsure about carrying out the checks themselves.
The objective of the Minute Or Two initiative is to reduce the number of easily-avoidable MOT failures by educating motorists. With these simple checks, motorists can ensure that they are in the best possible position to pass the test, saving themselves time as well as money on costs encountered with a failure.
The full ‘Minute Or Two’ checklist can be viewed at www.passmymot.co.uk, where visitors can also watch a video on carrying out the check and use a Garage Finder tool to locate their nearest dealer.
