Frequently Asked Questions
Many drivers, especially those that are fresh behind the wheel, tend to confuse a car service and MOT, but there are some key differences to help you tell them apart.
A service follows a detailed set of guidelines – set out by your vehicle manufacturer – designed to keep your car in tip-top condition. An annual service is not required by law, but it comes highly recommended by garages to help keep your vehicle in the best shape.
An MOT test, however, is a mandatory government assessment that follows strict criteria set out by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) that help ensure your vehicle is safe to drive on UK roads.
Even if your car passes its MOT, this isn’t to say that your car is still in peak condition, so it’s just as important to have it serviced as it is to book your MOT – legal or not – around every 37,500 miles or 3 months, whichever comes first.
A full car service can take up to 3 hours, while an interim service, to be completed every 12 months or 12,000 miles, only takes up to 90 minutes.
In most cases, you should be able to pick your car up on the same day you dropped it off at the garage, but you should plan for it to be there for the day.
If any problems are identified during your service, we may need extra time to repair them before we return your vehicle, or we may ask you to come back at a later date.
At CJ Auto, our top priority is to have you safely back on the roads as soon as possible. We still do everything by the book, but we do it efficiently and with great precision, meaning that your car will be with us for no longer than is necessary.

The answer to this depends on whether your car is booked in for a full or interim service.
Regardless of this, though, our expert mechanics at CJ Auto will complete your vehicle service in Warrington in as much detail as possible to ensure your car is safe to drive once it leaves our garage.
The main checks included in an interim service are:
• Checking for damage to your trims, number plates, bodywork and mirrors
• Replacing the oil filter
• Checking under the body for corrosion
• Checking for signs of leakage from the cylinders
And the main check included in a full service are:
• Replacement of spark plugs
• Refitting of wheels
• Looking at the door hinges, catches and locks
Of course, this isn’t the extent of either service, and we carry out other thorough assessments to determine the condition of your car and what we need to do to preserve its performance.
