HALFORDS LAUNCH EARLY BOOKING MOT CAMPAIGN

Halfords Autocentres has predicted MOT bookings will peak at 85 percent over the average in October. The garage network has carried out analysis across the industry which suggests that an additional 1.7m drivers will try to book their MOT in October, on top of the normal demand of about two million vehicles.

Accordingly, the network has launched a campaign to get motorists to book their vehicles in early, regardless of whether they have time left on their MOT extension. The initiative will focus on concerns some motorists may have about their vehicles being roadworthy after a period of idleness.

Andy Randall Managing Director from Halfords Autocentres said: “We’re urging drivers to beat the rush and book their vehicles in this summer. October and the winter months, are going to be much busier than normal when motorists will be joining millions of others who have held off getting their MOT done. Our research shows that almost half of motorists are worried about the roadworthiness of other cars on the road so those that get theirs done can be much more confident that their cars are properly roadworthy. The MOT test remains the best way to ensure vehicles are safe to drive.”
