In this guide, we provide answers to all these questions, giving you the background on the UK’s crucial car safety test.

Air conditioning service and repairs
If your car or van is fitted with air conditioning or climate control, you’ll know the comfort it can bring in maintaining a cool temperature when driving during the warmer months of the year.
However, you may not be aware that just like other components of your vehicle, your air conditioning system also requires regular servicing to make sure it is clean and operating at optimum efficiency.
We recommend having your vehicle’s air conditioning checked and re-gassed every two years. In addition to standard re-gassing, we also offer repairs on faulty air conditioning systems.
Laser wheel alignment
Laser Wheel Alignment is a way of using light beams to check your car’s front wheels are set up as they should be. You’d think this means simply pointing forwards but in fact, wheels are set up to point at specific angles to ensure the car rolls along smoothly.
To check the alignment, a technician attaches brackets to your car’s wheels and shines a light from one to the other or, using an overhead projector, to all four. Depending where the beams of light fall on a scale, the technician can see whether the wheels are in or out of alignment.
