As expected, these checks are generally more common around the summer holidays or when people are about to embark on a long journey. If the vehicle check shows up any issues, our technicians will explain them to the customer and recommend the next steps.

FAQ At Brighton MOT and Service Centre

  • How much is a car service and how soon will the work be done?

At the time of posting, the price of a standard car service is from £103 and a premium car service from £180. The service time will depend on what is being done and if any problems are identified which may require additional work.

  • Can I fit any tyres to my car?

In short, you should nearly always fit four of the same tyres to your car. The size will be stated by your vehicle manufacturer.

  • Why is my aircon not blowing cold?

A car air con needs a service at least every 1 to 2 years as the coolant doesn’t last forever and filters can get clogged up with dirt and stagnant water. If you notice a strange smell, noise or visible leak underneath the car, it could explain why your air con is not working.

  • Do many customers book an MOT with a service?

Some customers will have a standard service one year and a premium service the next so if they’re not doing the mileage, it’s not always advised to book a premium service every year. Most of our customers book an MOT and service at the same time.
