Pay only £1 for your car’s MOT if you shop at Halfords

Halfords clients can get their MOT almost for free – but hurry, offer ends 14 October!  

The retailer is offering their customers a free MOT test, usually worth £54.85, if they buy anything in their stores, including a £1 air freshener, their cheapest item. The promotion is running for a month and is due to end on 14 October.   

How to claim

All you have to do is purchase any item at a Halfords store. Then, you will receive an email code which you can use at any of the over 300 Halfords Autocentres around the country. The MOT test can be redeemed at any time over the next 13 months. However, a Halfords spokesperson said the promotion will particularly serve those motorists who want to service their cars in September, which is one of the busiest months for MOT checks. 

The promotion comes after a Halfords survey of 2000 motorists revealed that 16 percent of drivers said MOT’s is one of the costliest motoring expenses of the year. 

Costs for buying or leasing a car are high as they are, so any chance to save money on motoring expenses should be taken into account. 

MOT blues

The survey also revealed that over two thirds of motorists don’t know their car’s MOT date. Two thirds also don’t do checks of their car in preparation for the MOT until four weeks before the due date. Twenty-five percent leave it until there are two weeks to go.
