Car Clinic MOT Centre – Lockdown 2 Update

Lockdown 2

As Lockdown 2 is beginning on Thursday, we are publishing this article to keep you informed about the policies and procedures that we have put into place to keep our team and customers safe.

Car Clinic MOT Centre Lockdown 2 Update


Further to the announcement from the Prime Minister on Saturday and in line with the latest government Covid guidance, we would like to assure our customers that we are open for servicing, maintenance and MOTs during the next month of lockdown.

Do I still need an MOT during Lockdown?


The government has not announced a second delay for MOTs as they did during the first lockdown, so it is vital that if your car’s MOT is going to expire during the next four weeks that you have it done as usual. Call us and we will book you a slot, ensuring that social distancing is observed throughout.

What Measures Are We Taking to Keep You Safe?


We will:

  • follow social distancing advice and keep at least two metres between customers and our members of staff at all times
  • remind our employees to wash their hands more frequently than normal
  • frequently clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that are touched regularly
  • use seat covers and a new pair of disposable gloves for every vehicle
  • Avoid handling cash and ask our customers to contactless card payments if possible.

We have contactless sanitising stations to further protect our customers and we are doing everything we possibly can to support our community whilst maintaining social distancing.

Car Maintenance Checks

Don’t wait for your MOT to check your vehicle is in working order. There are several car maintenance checks you can do yourself to ensure your car is roadworthy.

Car Maintenance Checks


1. Tyre tread


Your car’s tyres are very important, so inspect them frequently – especially the tread depth. Making sure each tyre has enough tread is vital to make your car grip in the wet. Each tyre on your vehicle must have 1.6mm of tread or more. If you are caught with tyres with tread depths below the limit, you will get a fine and points on your licence – per tyre.

2. Tyre pressure


As well as tread depth, measure tyre pressure regularly. Your vehicle’s handling can be erratic if your tyres are wrongly inflated, and it affects grip. This is dangerous at high speeds. The correct tyre pressures are in your car manual or door sill.

3. Engine oil levels


Checking the engine oil is easy. Make sure the engine is cold then open the bonnet. Find the dipstick, pull it out of its tube and wipe off the excess oil with a cloth. Push it all the way in and pull it out again, looking where the oil stuck to it. Markings on the end indicate if your oil level is low.

4. Lights


You should check your headlights, indicators, reversing, fog and brake lights all work properly. This is quick to do and easier if someone helps you. Alternatively, park by a window and use the reflection.

5. Screen Wash and windscreen wipers


Make sure your wipers don’t leave streaks or smears on the window and top up your windscreen fluid if it gets low.
