Cost of living crisis threatens road safety with drivers avoiding MOTs to save money

Motorists are often caught off guard by unanticipated essential maintenance costs, with 39 percent having had to pay for new tyres, wiper blades (25 percent), and/or new brakes and brake pads (20 percent) in addition to their MOT over the past year.

The average spend on car maintenance over the last 12 months was £274.40, with some spending as much as £1,000 or more (three percent).

Halfords Chief Customer Officer Karen Bellairs said: “The cost of motoring in the UK is rising faster than inflation and worryingly our research has found many drivers are struggling to cope with the bills causing some to miss booking an MOT test.

“We at Halfords are fully committed to keeping drivers safe and moving by providing affordable car servicing and maintenance options for all.”
