Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles are warning van-owners to be vigilant of the simple causes behind many MOT failures.

50% of all light commercial vehicles in the UK will fail their first MOT test, often due to a lack of basic maintenance; faulty bulbs, tyre tread, mirrors, windscreen wipers, washer fluid and illegal licence plates are frequent culprits, but are all easy to prevent.

With MOT failures leading to increased downtime and repair costs, Volkswagen Commercials are urging operators to being their vehicles into van centres for regular servicing to spot easily-resolved issues. VW’s national pricing scheme allows for simple budgeting, so maintenance plans can be easily factored in to your annual schedule; businesses can purchase a service and MOT test package  for just £150 excluding VAT, perfect for resolving minor issues in advance of the test.
