At Farnsfield Auto Centre in Ripley, we maintain an exclusive range of car tyres including summer, winter and all-season tyres.
We are an authorised car garage with certified technicians for your vehicle’s MOT test in Ripley. A car older than 3 years has to mandatorily appear for this test. If your car has reached that age, then you have to take this test every year, and also pass it.
Some of the standard components that we asses during a pre-MOT check include –
- Registration plates
- Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
- Body speedometer
Failing in an MOT can be easily avoided by sticking to the basic guidelines and checking these components. However, there are certain car components which require additional expertise to guarantee complete resolutions.
A few critical components and systems that we will check are –
Parts of your car’s suspension system like struts, shocks, springs, and others must work accordingly and also should be corrosion-free.
Our testers in Ripley will check the integrity of your vehicle’s brakes along with the malfunction lights, pedal, and other parts.
3. Steering wheel
The steering wheel and assemblage must not have any damage on it and should be secure in its position. If your vehicle has a power steering, then we will also check the fluid levels for optimal functionality. Also, if the steering wheel has a locking mechanism, we will inspect it too.
4. Exhaust system
Your vehicle’s exhaust system must contain the original components and should not have any leaks. Our testers will also assess the fuel emissions from your vehicle.
Tyres at their easiest best
Tyres must have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm. They must also not have any damage, tears, and cuts longer than 25mm as MOT specifications.
Beyond these obvious pointers, if you require a set of new car tyres, let us at Farnsfield Auto Centre help you with that too. We can help you with the best branded tyres in Ripley at attractive price points, viz. –
