Re: Difference between MOT and minor service

MOT checks will be totally different to service items. MOT is checking the roadworthy condition of your cars components and they won't do any fluids, oil , screenwash, brake fluid, coolant, filters that the service will. Any half decent mechanic will also check all tyre pressures, lubricate locks, adjust the handbrake and also point out if any braking components needs replacing. I've also known them to redirect mis-aimed washer jets and occasionally wash/valet the car.
