HALFORDS is offering a free MOT to any customers who shop in Halfords retail branches in the next four weeks.

Any product bought in a Halfords store between now and October 14 entitles the buyer to a free MOT which they have 13 months to redeem.

With 53 per cent of drivers admitting they don’t even know when their MOT is due and 16 per cent of motorists saying they have put off fixing faults with their vehicles until their next scheduled service, Halfords Autocentre bosses say they are launching the initiative to keep 'more motorists on the road and road users safe' this autumn.

The offer comes during the second busiest month of the year for MOT tests.

This month will see nearly half a million cars require their first MOT, as September 2015 saw 462,517 new cars hit the road.

A Halfords Autocentre spokesman said: “As the UK’s leading garage network with more than 300 garages UK-wide, Halfords Autocentres is staffed by friendly, expert and trustworthy technicians who provide the highest standards of service.

"The company has been ranked among the top 30 brands for customer service in the UK Customer Satisfaction Index, so motorists can be reassured that they will be very well looked after when they get their vehicle MOT’d.”
