As more people returning to driving amid the lockdown, Halfords is offering the free service to keep everyone safe.
Research recently found that 22 per cent of drivers have not used their cars for months amid the coronavirus lockdown.
With lockdown measures easing, and people jumping back in their cars for trips to work or for a self-distanced catch up with a friend or family member, Halfords are now offering free car checks.
The car check, which usually takes 30 minutes, usually costs customers £15, but has now been made a free service.
The service has recently been offered free to NHS and emergency staff amid the pandemic, before becoming available to all.
The service will include a check on:
Headlight & brake light check
Wiper blade condition check
Battery health check
Windscreen chip check
MOT due date reminder (UK only)
Tyre depth check
Tyre inflation check & top up
Oil level check
Screen wash top up
AdBlue & coolant check
You can book the service online at more than 650 Halfords garages, but note there will be a maximum of 25,000 checks limited per week.
