Can you imagine a time when an MOT was only needed when a car was a decade old?! That’s how it was in the old days! The MOT (Ministry of Transport) test has come a long way since it was first introduced in 1960. Back then, the test simply covered brakes, lights and steering and unbelievably, was not compulsory until a vehicle was ten years old – something that makes us at Orchard Garage shudder!
We had a car in at the weekend for a vibration when driving along the A2, all down to the o/s/f tyre having cords exposed.... blow out waiting to happen!
Remember to please check your tyres regularly for your safety. We can do it for you at either branch, or for a comprehensive check over of your car, why not book in for a Summer Health Check and we can check them for you whilst we also check the rest of the vehicle!?
