What’s the difference between an MOT and a Service in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire?

When Do I Need An MOT?

Every car over the age of three years old requires an annual MOT test
The MOT is essentially a visual inspection of your car, and will determine whether it meets minimum road safety requirements as set out by the DVSA. A qualified MOT tester will check things like the condition of your brakes, whether your lights work, and the tread of your tyres as well as the emissions levels. The MOT tester is bound by the strict rules of DVSA and not by the rules of the garage.

Remember – driving without a valid MOT certificate is against the law, and can result in a fine of £1000 and points on your license.If you have run out of MOT, you are allowed to drive your car to our garage when you have a valid appointment (DVSA or the Police check this on our system if there is a problem)

Forgotten your MOT date? We can advise you of this, or you can check online for FREE here. When you have an MOT, we advise you getting your new test at least 2 weeks before its due as we can date the MOT for when its due and you don’t lose any days each year. We can do an MOT up to 28 days in advance. If you leave it until the last day, and there are any works that need to be done, it can end up being a real pain for you to have to do without the car (although we have courtesy cars you can normally drive about in – but there will always be the odd time that they are all booked out). This is why we begin to remind you about your MOT around a month in advance of when it needs doing.

When Do I Need A Service?

Car Servicing is recommended at regular intervals to maintain the condition and roadworthiness of your vehicle. The Service itself is set out by your vehicle’s manufacturer, and usually includes a more in-depth mechanical assessment of your car.It is done in addition to the MOT, which essentially is a safety check of your car ‘on the day’ of the test. To maintain your car into the following year and the years to come – servicing is absolutely necessary.

Regular servicing will keep your car running smoothly, as well as prolonging its lifespan and maintaining its value when you come to sell. However, unlike the MOT test, Car Servicing is not required by law.

A Little More Information About Your Service Options

There are three types of Car Servicing available:

Interim Service

This 6-month, 25-point check is designed to cover a good standard of check and represents the absolute minimum that we recommend for a car’s maintenance each year. This service includes and oil and filter change, as well as brake, steering and suspension checks. We send you your personalized video, fill out a Hillclimb Service Card with lots of important information.

Full Service

The Full Service is a comprehensive annual service covering individual checks and adjustments. It includes a thorough inspection of electrical and mechanical systems, and a top of up of important fluids including brake fluid, power steering fluid, oil and coolant. It covers everything in the Interim Service and an additional 15 points. We also change the Air Filter and we vacuum your car on top of its regular service wash.

Major Service

Recommended every two years, the Major Service is the most complete Car Service available, and covers every aspect of the full service with the addition of the fuel filter and an additional 15 points. In this service we also change spark plugs and pollen filters where applicable (additional charges for these parts). When you combine this service with an MOT, the MOT becomes 1p!

Many of our customers have too much on in their lives to know what service their car needs – don’t worry! We usually reserve enough time to do any of the services and then on the day we can look in your service book or check the car visually to see what needs doing and let you know which one we have chosen and why.
