Pre-MOT Hint and Tips

There are steps you can take before you submit your vehicle for an MOT test. Often cars can fail on a very minor aspect, such as a faulty bulb, low windscreen washer fluid levels and cracked registration plates. It is worth checking the vehicle over before submitting it for an MOT to ensure your vehicle does not fail on a minor aspect.
