What is a Tyre Puncture Repair?

A tyre puncture repair fixes a damaged tyre, caused by any of the following:

  • A collision
  • Driving over broken glass
  • Hitting a screw or a nail

 

Many drivers look to patch a punctured tyre rather than fitting a replacement due to it being seen as a more cost-effective solution.

However, you must ensure the repair is safe and is only used as a temporary measure, as your car must still be roadworthy to drive on public roads in the UK and pass the yearly MOT test.

 

Who Can Help Me with a Tyre Puncture Repair?

Most mobile mechanics will be able to help you with a tyre puncture repair. They will bring the right equipment to your location (alongside a replacement tyre if the damage isn’t repairable) and complete the job on your driveway.

This is the safest way to repair a punctured tyre. You should not drive your vehicle to a local garage if you have a puncture or foreign object in the rubber as this poses a danger to you and other road users and can also make the problem worse.

 

Where Can I Find a Tyre Puncture Repair Near Me?

As you need a mobile mechanic to help with your tyre repair, you may need to search for local repairers directly to ensure you find a reputable company that has the skills to help with your problem. This can be as simple as typing ‘tyre puncture repair near me’ into a search engine.

You can also ask family and friends for recommendations if you need a tyre puncture repair in a hurry.

 

How Much Does a Tyre Puncture Repair Cost?

The average tyre puncture repair cost in the UK is about £20 - £30 per tyre.

We always recommend comparing prices from local tyre repairers to ensure you find the most reputable option and book the best deal.

 

What are the Symptoms I Need a Tyre Puncture Repair?

Some common signs you have a punctured tyre include the following:

  • A loud bang followed by vibrations in the steering wheel and a lack of control over your vehicle.
  • A loss of tyre pressure, with the tyre pressure warning light showing on your dashboard.
  • Visible damage to the tyre such as a nail, screw or other debris embedded in the rubber.
  • Increased road noise.
  • Vibrations in the steering wheel.
  • A ticking noise if something is embedded in the tyre.

 

If you’ve noticed any of the following, you should contact a local tyre repairer to get the problem inspected and fixed as soon as possible. You shouldn’t drive your car in the meantime as it poses a safety risk to you and other drivers if you do so.

 

Can I Fix My Punctured Tyre Myself?

Yes, you may be able to fix a punctured tyre yourself – but only as a short-term emergency fix.

Most modern cars come with an emergency tyre repair kit which will allow you to plug the hole with sealant and reinflate the tyre with a compressor. This only works on minor repairs, and you should still drive carefully and only as much as necessary before seeking professional help.

You should not attempt to complete a more thorough puncture repair yourself as it is a highly skilled process.
