MOT fails could be avoided by basic car maintenance

DVSA is encouraging motorists to avoid MOT fails by carrying out simple vehicle checks.

New figures have revealed that carrying out basic car maintenance could avoid the main reasons cars fail their annual MOT.

Nearly 50% of all faults found on MOTs could be avoided by carrying out regular, simple checks and maintenance, like replacing bulbs, wipers and tyres.

Between April 2015 and March 2016, nearly 1 in 5 cars taken for their MOT had problems with lighting and signalling - including simple problems such as blown bulbs.
