Yes, mobile mechanics can perform car diagnostic tests. They have the necessary tools and equipment to connect to the vehicle's onboard diagnostic (OBD) system and retrieve error codes.
With their expertise, they can interpret the codes, identify the underlying issues, and provide a diagnosis. Mobile mechanics can also perform additional tests, such as checking sensor readings, inspecting wiring connections, and conducting visual inspections to further diagnose the problem.
As the technician only needs to use a handheld diagnostic tool, there is no need to take your car into a static garage during a mobile car diagnostic. However, the mobile mechanic may need to take it to a local garage for repairs, depending on the problem your vehicle has. They will communicate this with you if necessary.

There are six main benefits to booking an appointment with a mobile mechanic. These are:
Convenience. A mobile mechanic comes to you, rather than the other way around. This means it's easier to fit your diagnostic check into your schedule as they can complete the work while you go about your day. What's more, if your car has broken down, they can fix it by the side of the road without the need for you to find a tow truck.
Flexibility. Plenty of mobile mechanics work on Saturdays or as a 24-hour service. If your schedule needs a bit more flexibility, booking a local mobile mechanic would work well for you.
Transparency. With a mobile mechanic, you can choose to watch them complete the work. This gives you the reassurance that they're doing what you've asked. It also means that, if you have any questions, it's much easier to get the answers before any work is done.
Cheaper. Mobile mechanics tend to be at least competitively priced against local garages, if not cheaper than them. As the technician operates out of a van, they have lower overheads and expenses. This allows them to offer their services at a lower price.
Personal Service. Mobile car diagnostics are far more personal. There are no other customers or members of staff around which means you get the technician's undivided attention from start to finish.
Fully-Qualified. Mobile mechanics are able to complete most car repairs (excluding MOTs) on your driveway or at your place of work. They have all the equipment needed to complete high-quality work for simple repairs.
In some cases, they may have to take your car to a nearby garage to complete a more complex repair. They will always communicate this with you if it's necessary.
