Get your car serviced or MoTed

Your car needs regular love and attention if it isn’t to break down, but it’s easy to lose track of what’s needed and when. Once a year it’ll need to be MoTed and it should be serviced too. You can get these done at the same time by the same garage – what’s important is that they’re done.

It’s illegal to drive without an MoT, not least of all because your insurance might be invalid. An MoT is a roadworthiness check – it doesn’t involve any maintenance of any kind. That’s why you must also ensure that once a year, you get your car serviced too.
