Vehicles in Britain are subject to an annual MOT test.

For vehicles that come within the MOT scheme, testing is mandatory every year after the vehicle is three years old.

We can offer a while-you-wait MOT test with appointments taking no longer than approximately one hour.

A small investment in routine servicing, plus a good inspection programme, results in a good return on that investment because:

  • Each time you have your vehicle serviced with us, we check your brakes and tyres, which are important safety-related aspects
  • Having your engine oil changed regularly improves the fuel efficiency of your car and the longevity of the engine
  • Early diagnosis of faults prevents future costly repairs
  • Well maintained vehicles run as they are designed, keeping emissions to a minimum, protecting our environment
  • It provides you with added value to the price of your car when you come to sell it!

Independent Cars have fully qualified and experienced staff that can supply and fit brakes for all makes and models at competitive prices.

It is essential for your car to have the brakes in their full working order. This can range from disk brakes, disk pads, brake callipers and also brake pipes.

Are your brakes in working order?

When your brakes have a problem, common signs include:

  • Excessive noise
  • Funny smells from the wheels
  • A high, hard brake pedal
  • Warning lights on your dash

If your car is exhibiting any of these signs, don't hesitate to contact Independent Cars Service Team as soon as possible to prevent further damage and cost to your pocket.


At Independent Cars, we can cure most types of diagnostics on your car.

All cars are now fitted with computers and a myriad of technology to run and monitor the internal workings of the vehicle. One of the most important functions these computers provide is ensuring your car is operating within the manufacturer's parameters; the engine, safety systems (ABS, Anti-Slip etc) are all operating correctly and safely. Most people usually only become aware of the functions of these computers when one of the fault warning indicators illuminates on the dashboard.


Looking to buy tyres for your car? Independent Cars can get you driving safe and legal on the road.

Look for cuts, cracks and bulges, or any other evidence of damage, from violent impact or kerbing, or excessive wear on the inner/outer of the tyre or middle of tread. Damaged tyres may be illegal and can be dangerous. For peace of mind, call into Independent Cars for some friendly expert advice and ask for your free tyre check.

Air Conditioning

You may not be aware that over 10% of air-con gas permeates from the air-con system every year.

This means that it may not work as well as it should. This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than 2 years old it's probably due for a recharge.


Your car's suspension is a vital safety issue for your vehicle.

Worn shock absorbers not only reduce driver comfort, but they can also dramatically affect the handling and safety of your car.

Worn suspension components may also cause an irritating knocking noise.


We carry an extensive range of batteries, which are available to be fitted while you wait. Ranging from a 3-year, 4-year & 5-year warranty.
