MOTs
from £35

The MOT test is a legal requirement for vehicles over three years old and is an annual test of vehicle safety, roadworthiness and exhaust emissions.

You can be fined up to £1,000 for driving a vehicle without a valid MOT

Fixing Brakes

Mike Brewer Motors is a DVSA-approved MOT centre and can carry out MOT tests on all makes and models of car and certain light commercial vehicles.

Our fully-qualified technicians use the latest equipment to test the following, and more:

  • Bodywork
  • Wheels
  • Tyres
  • Brakes
  • Steering
  • Suspension
  • Lights
  • Windscreen wipers
  • Exhaust emissions
  • Seat belts and safety equipment

Once the test is completed, you’ll either receive a pass certificate or details of the reason for a refusal. Should your car fail any part of the test, we will advise you on the cost of rectifying the issue before carrying out any work.

Servicing
from £99

As a general rule, you should be looking to service your car every 12,000 miles or every 12 months, whichever comes first. Car servicing is not a legal requirement but there are a lot of benefits in getting your car serviced regularly.

Car Servicing

Why service your car?

Peace of mind

First and foremost, car servicing is about keeping you and your loved ones safe on the road. You may not be able to see or feel any problems with your car but a service will ensure that any wear and tear is detected and any preventative maintenance can be planned. Critical components on your car, such as braking and suspension, will be checked to ensure that they’re not going to let you down. With regular car servicing, you can drive away with the peace of mind that your car is safe and roadworthy.

Maintain your car’s value

With 75% of the UK market now opting for a used car, the market is very competitive and used car buyers demand high standards. Regular servicing proves that your car has been maintained correctly and improves its longevity. A full service history is attractive to used car buyers and could mean that you’ll get a higher price.

Save money

Correct and regular maintenance of your car ensures that it runs smoothly. Ensuring things like your tyre inflation and wheel alignment are correctly adjusted, filters are regularly replaced and the air conditioning system is full of gas all contribute towards a car that runs efficiently.

Issues identified and rectified early on can reduce or totally avoid potential unnecessary larger costs at a later date.
