Learn how not to fail your MOT with the following easy tips:
1. Coolant leak
You may be surprised but fluids such as engine coolants and screen wash can leak but aren’t considered reasons for failure.
Your vehicle can fail the MOT if the fluid creates a pool on the floor within five minutes, or if there are many leaks which collectively leak fluid at the same rate.
2. Exhaust hole
The exhaust will only fail an MOT if there is a major leak or emissions are said to be unsafe.
A minor leak or corrosion would be pointed out as an advisory note but would pass.
3. Worn Tyres
Car tyres must provide enough grip for drivers to be able to control their vehicle efficiently and brake. There is a legal tread depth of 1.6mm, if they’re above this you’ll pass.
Safe driving, from Britannia!
