At Hobson Test Centre, we offer full, interim and major service schedules for all makes and models of vehicle. Our interim service is based on a 6,000 mile or 6-month schedule, providing oil changes and filter checks for drivers that like to keep their motor in check on a regular basis.
Our full service, we recommend drivers to get once a year or every 12,000 miles. This is the most common type of service that customers receive. It allows efficient running of the vehicle throughout the year and can help to spot minor repairs that need doing before they turn into something more serious.

Our team at Hobson Test Centre are fully trained to service vehicles to manufacturers schedules. This means that any car with any existing warranty can remain under their policy. In 2003, the laws changed and customers do not have to service their vehicle at the main dealer from which they bought it. Our independent garage can offer better prices for the same service, so our customers can always relax when it comes to existing warranty.
As a general rule, most customers will get a full vehicle service once every year or every 12,000 miles. These guidelines are agreed on by most manufacturers suitable for most drivers and vehicles. However, the service that you specifically need can be affected by the distance travelled within a year or the age of the vehicle. For most drivers, it is recommended that your check your vehicle's handbook to see which services are recommended at what levels, this ensures that your car gets what it need in order to run efficiently.
