MOT - It only takes a minute…or two
A nationwide campaign to help motorists reduce MOT failures has been launched this month (Tuesday 2nd April), backed by 5,545 manufacturer main dealers across the UK. (www.smmt.co.uk)
Research carried out by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) indicates that around “1.5 million MOT failures each year could be avoided if motorists carry out simple visual checks of their vehicles and forewarn their dealer of issues, before the annual test of roadworthiness”, reports www.thisisplymouth.co.uk.
It only takes a minute or two to go through the cleverly devised “10-step-checklist”, which takes owners through some quick checks including, tyres, headlights, windscreen wipers and fluid levels.
“With the introduction of a number of new additions to the annual MOT test just last month, it is even more important for vehicle owners to understand the advantage that a few simple checks could make to the outcome of their test. Indeed we would encourage the simple checks to be conducted regularly between MOT tests to ensure the vehicle is safe.” (www.smmt.co.uk)
Cars can at times be a drain on our finances, which is why Sue Robinson, National Franchised Dealers Association director, said “The Minute Or Two scheme, along with the assistance of their local manufacturer main dealer, could make a huge difference to MOT pass rates, saving motorists both time and money." (www.smmt.co.uk)
The full ‘Minute Or Two’ checklist can be viewed at www.passmymot.co.uk, where visitors can also use a Garage Finder tool to locate their nearest dealer.

"Excellent service from start to finish. Highly recommend.They'd forgotten to include something in the quote, and charged for it virtually free, fast, efficient, stupendous value for money and courteous service. And, if you are a woman, virtually every other car place in Peterborough talks to either your husband/partner/random male with you or to your 'chest area' which I hate with a passion - Concorde people seem to appreciate that a grown woman (even a none technical rather dim one!) has the nouse to own a car, and more importantly, pay the bill!!Incidentally, while I was picking my car up, there was an incredibly rude and unreasonable customer giving one of the guys a really hard time and the way he (the concorde employee) dealt with it was very impressive customer service (I'd have lost my cool, but he was ultra professional the whole way) "
