On the road for winter

Motorists can get on the road to safety this winter with seasonal checks at Durham County Council’s service centres.

They cover everything from tyres, lights, battery and windscreen wipers to anti-freeze, starter systems and heating.

Mike Toas, country fleet manager, Durham County Council, said: “Vehicle health checks can help make sure your vehicle is well prepared for the frost, ice and snow and keep you on the move this winter.”

The checks, along with MOT’s, are carried out by qualified technicians and are available “while you wait”. They are competitively priced at £26 with the full MOT’s from £42.
