We want to help you and your family stay safe each winter, which is why every year we offer a FREE winter health check at Yateley MOT.​


Our winter safety check covers all the most important parts of your vehicle for winter:

Light bulbs
Essential for keeping you visible in dreary conditions, your light bulbs are essential in winter. They can also be an MOT fail if they're not up to scratch, so we’ll check all external light bulbs as part of the check.

Your vehicle's tyres are the only thing gripping your vehicle to the ground, which makes them one of the most important safety points we check. We’ll make sure the tyre tread is at a healthy level and the tyres are in a good overall condition. We’ll also top-up your tyres to the correct pressure.

We advise you to use your brakes less in cold and icy conditions (using gears to slow down is much safer), but we’ll check that your discs and pads are healthy enough to get you through until your next service or MOT. We’ll look at the wear on the brake pads, and the general condition of your discs.

Unfortunately, batteries have a habit of going flat during cold spells, due to slowed chemical reactions as well as increased use of electrical parts like lights. We’ll check your battery level to make sure you’re not left in the cold.

Wiper Blades
Wiper blades and screen wash are a must-have on a rainy day. We’ll check that your car's blades are working as they should and we’ll top up your screen wash for free too.

Anti-freeze keeps everything ticking around the engine, prevents water-based fluids from freezing in the engine and raises the boiling point of engine coolant to avoid overheating.

It really is free
We'll inspect your vehicle and report to you any items that might need attention, with a full explanation why. The winter safety check really is a no-obligation service, so as long as you’re happy, we’ll send you on your way!
