What is a Vehicle Health Check?

A Vehicle Health Check (or Vehicle Safety Check) is a 28-point visual check of your car and key components to help ensure your vehicle is safe to drive. The check is carried out by a vetted mechanic who will report on any issues with key components of the car. A report is emailed to you once the mechanic has checked the car and completed the booking.

How do I know if my vehicle is safe to drive?

The Vehicle Health Check can help identify issues on your car that might prevent it from being safe and ready to drive. The mechanic will go through a 28-point checklist which will provide insight into the condition of your car and whether it is safe to drive.

Is a Vehicle Health Check the same as a service?

The Vehicle Health Check provides a quick visual check of key components on your car, whereas a car service is primarily aimed at providing the necessary periodical car maintenance and a more in-depth check of a car, which includes changing some components such as your oil & oil filter.

Is an MOT the same as Vehicle Health Check?

No, an MOT is a government stipulated test that a vehicle needs to pass to be legally allowed on the road. It checks whether the car meets road safety standards as well as environmental standards. Driving your car without a valid MOT is illegal and you can be fined. A Vehicle Health Check can then help identify whether your vehicle is safe to drive if you’re unsure whether it is.

Even if your car has a valid MOT it can be unsafe to drive. You can be fined up to £2,500, be banned from driving and get 3 penalty points for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition.

How much does a Vehicle Health Check cost?

A Vehicle Health Check costs £50 and comes with a written report by a vetted mechanic.

What is included in a Vehicle Health Check?
