If you own a vehicle, it is your responsibility to make sure that it is safe and road worthy to drive. While it is not a legal requirement in the UK to get your vehicle serviced, it is compulsory to get an annual MOT.
MOT’s are great for knowing your vehicle is safe to drive on the road, however, a service can examine your car or van in more detail.
Servicing a vehicle can improve its lifespan and decrease the risk of a mechanical fault during driving. You can service a vehicle as often as you want but most drivers choose to service theirs annually. Servicing your vehicle annually can also help when it comes to selling. Selling a vehicle with a full service history increases the price of your car dramatically.
Servicing your vehicle can also be beneficial should you encounter any issues with its driving functions, as the garage that serviced it should provide you with cover once serviced.
