What is a Vehicle Safety Check?

This car health check is a simple but effective safety check that inspects the most important parts of your vehicle to keep it in top condition. It is designed to give you peace of mind about the safety, reliability and roadworthiness of your car. Your car performs best when it is properly maintained, and you can also avoid some of the most common breakdowns with a regular safety check.

An expert technician will perform 16 checks, including your brakes, tyres and key fluid levels. The full list of checks is outlined below.

Just enter your vehicle reg and postcode into BookMyGarage to compare garages in your area offering this check and book your appointment now.

What Are the Benefits Of This Safety Check?

A vehicle safety check will help you get your car running properly for less because it is over 9x cheaper than the average UK full service! For just £19.99 (free for all emergency workers/anyone eligible for the Blue Light Card scheme), you get the knowledge that your car is safe to drive.

You may have neglected your car's maintenance in recent years, so your vehicle could have been developing unseen problems for far too long. Don’t let them increase your chances of an accident. Book a vehicle safety check through BookMyGarage now.

Our car safety check also brings the following benefits:

  • Avoids breakdowns – It identifies any problems which require immediate attention before they turn into costly repairs.
  • Improves performance – If you’re concerned about the way your car is running, our safety check should highlight the problem.
  • Peace of mind – Expert technicians check the most important elements of your car to keep you safe all year long. Whatever your travel plans, our vehicle safety check will keep you moving smoothly and safely.
  • FREE for all emergency workers (full list of eligible professions outlined below) and free for everyone else when booked with a service. That way, you get your car ready for the year ahead without having to break the bank first.
