Often people ask “what is a service”, so we have broken down what we action to make things simpler:

“A motor vehicle service…” is a series of maintenance procedures carried out at a set time interval or after the vehicle has travelled a certain distance.

The service intervals are specified by the vehicle manufacturer in a service schedule and some moderns cars display the due date for the service electronically on the instruction panel.

Maintenance tasks commonly carried out (but not limited to) during a motor vehicle service include:

  • Change the engine oil
  • Replace the oil filter
  • Check/Replace the air filter
  • Check/Replace the fuel filter
  • Check and advise general engine tune
  • Check level and where required refill brake fluid
  • Check level and where required refill power steering fluid
  • Check all drive line fluids
  • Grease and lubricate components
  • Inspect and replace the drive belt if needed
  • Check conditions of all tyres
  • Check brake condition
  • Check suspension
  • Check battery terminals and security of battery
  • Check all accessories and controls
  • Check handbrake operation and travel
  • Check operation of lights, horn, wipers washers
  • Check front and rear brake pads and discs for wear

Warrant of Fitness Definition…

is a periodic safety inspection that is compulsory for light vehicles. A light vehicle is a car, station wagon, van or 4WD vehicle. It can also be a moped, motorcycle or similar including a trike.

A Warrant of Fitness inspection includes the following safety checks:

  • Tyre condition (including tread depth)
  • Brake operation
  • Structural condition (rust isn’t allowed in certain key areas)
  • Lights (are all bulbs working?)
  • Glazing (is your windscreen safe?)
  • Windscreen washers and wipers (do they work?)
  • Doors (do they open and close safely?)
  • Safety belts (must not be faded or damaged; buckles must work properly)
  • Airbags (if fitted – SRS light should work correctly)
  • Speedometer (must be working)
  • Steering and suspension (must be safe and secure)
  • Exhaust (there must be no leaks and the exhaust must not be too loud or too smoky)
  • Fuel system (there must be no leaks)

After your vehicle passes its Warrant of Fitness check, it becomes your responsibility to keep it in the condition that it was in when it passed the inspection.

The Warrant of Fitness doesn’t cover many areas of a vehicle’s condition such as:

  • Engine, clutch, gearbox and differential
  • Lubricant levels and condition
  • Brake pads thickness or life expectancy
  • Paint work condition and rust in non-structural areas.
