As we near the end of 2020, it’s a good idea to make sure your vehicle is in check – the last thing you want is to experience vehicle problems in the new year! Here are some of the most important considerations to think about before the end of the year.

Read on for all you need to know.

MOT and Servicing

If you haven’t had your car MOT or service done already, be sure to check when it’s due. December renewals are not ideal, however, booking early will help you plan the rest of the month and budget. It may be a good idea to arrange a car service too so you can enter 2021 with a vehicle that’s in top condition.


When does your car insurance policy end? If your renewal is coming up then get organised and compare the best deals to save yourself some money. Sticking with the same insurer is not always the most cost effective option. Make a note of your renewal dates as you head into a new year and get prepared.

Vehicle tax

As with car insurance, vehicle tax is another cost to consider in the new year. Again, you can check when yours runs out by going to the Gov website where you can also pay for your tax online.

General repairs

Strange noises, a change in the way your vehicle is running or ongoing problems are all signs that your vehicle needs to be repaired. Don’t let these problems carry over into the new year. Instead, nip them in the bud by arranging a repair and getting your car back in good working order.
