Halfords is offering customers that make a purchase from any of its retails stores or halfords.com a free MOT on their car, with no minimum value stated.

The national fast fit stipulates that the test must be booked online at a Halfords Autocentre and must be redeemed before October 31, 2019.

The free MOT is available to customers in England, Scotland and Wales with the offer running from Monday 10 to Friday September 14.

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.”

The latest promotion comes just days after the fast fit chain announced that it launched a new breakdown recovery service which offers incentives for policyholders such as half price MOTs, discounted repairs, ten per cent off servicing and a ten pound gift voucher.

Scepticism among GW readers remains rife, with many questioning the legitimacy of MOT discounting.

Commenting on the GW forum recently, reader, Peter Miles said: “If they can provide a good quality service at this discounted price then why isn’t that their price in the first place?

“Sadly in my local experience all the fast fits offer is poor workmanship at high prices, despite their claims of being cheap.”

    I asked why hasn’t the test fee increased when my overheads have drastically increased. The test fee when confronting a dvsa official is based on the average labour rate, dvsa have certainly cut there overheads, NO forms supplied (meaning no postal delivery costings) no equipment supplied/support, phone lines, NO training services, And No mot slots fee reductions – instead reverse paying for equipment/stationary yearly training and less dvsa support. The cost of keep having to learn what’s new test items only to find many removed and then put back on again. The cost of software upgrades like brexit it’s not good.
    The fees need to increase to at least £60 and NO cut price mots it then shall be up to the presenters to make a choice. One final point 7.5 tons vehicles upwards have one test fee yes no discount why because they are dvsa testers.
