An MOT Inspection is a mandatory test that is carried out by the 3rd anniversary of the vehicles registration and every year there after.
The MOT Inspection checks that your vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards. It is not a check on the overall mechanical condition or a substitute for your regular service.
Interim Service: the smaller of the two services designed for drivers who do an average of 10,000 mile per annum where a standard service is not required every year. This service covers oil and filter change, air and pollen filter (if fitted), a full visual inspection of brakes and all suspension joints. As well as tyre pressures, levels and lights
Standard Service: A standard or full service is the bigger of the two services including oil, air, fuel and pollen filter changes, oil change and spark plugs, engine flush, hand brake adjustment and rear brake strip down and clean (if brake drums), visual inspection of all suspension joints, tyre pressures and depths, and ECU health check.
