Our technicians will check all aspects of your braking system to identify any issues and help you stay safe on the road.
Regular brake checks are an important part of the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of your vehicle. Modern braking systems are complicated, including components such as a master cylinder, servo, brake calipers, brake fluid and cylinders, disks, drums, pads and shoes. All of these components are linked by a series of brake hoses and brake pipes which contain brake fluid, ensuring that when you press the brake pedal the vehicle slows down and stops.
Our free brake check can quickly identify any problems before they have the chance to reduce the braking efficiency of your vehicle.
During an MOT test the performance of your vehicle’s braking system is checked on a rolling road to measure the amount of braking force generated while operating the hand and foot brake. The braking force generated is then recorded and compared to the manufacturer’s specified tolerance level. Any reading or imbalance falling outside these tolerance levels will result in an MOT test failure.
As best practice for drivers whose annual mileage is considered average or high (around 8,000 miles per year or more), we recommend that your vehicle’s braking system is checked at least twice a year.
