Halfords launches MOT look-up service

11 April 2016

  • Drivers can check MOT due date by entering vehicle registration number 
  • New service coincides with interest-free credit offer
  • Package introduced to help anxiety

HALFORDS Autocentres today launches an online MOT reminder service, helping motorists remember when their annual  vehicle safety check is due. The service is part of a package of initiatives combined with interest-free credit for repairs to make life’s journeys easier.

The initiative is being introduced as new research reveals nearly half (45 per cent) of all drivers say they are anxious when visiting a garage and the schemes aims to alleviate this anxiety and to help drivers stay safe on the road.

A huge 66 per cent of those surveyed don’t make preparations for an MOT until a month before it is due, and a quarter (25 per cent) leave it until less than a fortnight to go.

Now, Halfords Autocentres is making it easier for customers to check when they need a once-over by launching an MOT reminder service. By entering vehicle registration number at  http://www.halfordsautocentres.com/advice/mot-advice/when-is-my-mot-due

Interest-free credit is available to all customers with a debit card on all repairs over £200. Customers pay 25 per cent on the day, and then pay the balance over the following three months at no extra cost.

Stefan Warhaftig of Halfords Autocentres said, “As we head into MOT peak season, we know from our customers that it’s not always possible to plan for repairs in advance, so we’ve introduced interest-free credit to help more drivers afford essential repair work and keep their cars on the road.

“This service means drivers can spread the cost of unexpected repairs and we hope it will give motorists the peace of mind to get faults checked as they appear rather than wait, which could cause further damage to their cars.”

Interest-free credit launches now at Halfords Autocentres and is available to UK-registered debit card holders on repairs over £200. Not available online.
