Free MOT with any level AA breakdown cover from £39.95

Found 13th Sep 2014
Free car MOT with any level AA Breakdown cover. Ok I'm not gonna get into an argument who is the best breakdown company, but we all need an MOT once a year so if you need breakdown cover, you may as well get it for free! Or if you need an MOT, 39.95 is not a bad price and you can have basic breakdown cover! Think the MOT is done by national tyres
You can even pay monthly if you are skint.

Good deal have some heat. National tyres used to be very good & helpful by me then they had a new manager & it all went to pot started to try ripping people off. So stopped using them years ago.

you can usually get cashback on topcashback and quidco for aa purchase too

Just had a quote of £104. No thanks!

Not for basic cover I gather

Waiting for those 'comments' to appear

If anyone has motor, building or contents insurance through the AA you should get basic roadside free. Give them a call

Whoever posted this "free mot" is wrong! Please expire this deal so no other poor sods fall into this trap.

Hmm yes. I should really explain myself instead of being so rude. Ok, so I purchased AA breakdown cover through the internet as instructed. Received an email about thanking me for buying cover and my "introductory offer would be dispatched within 28 days through email or post". This annoyed me because 1. I was hoping to MOT my car within the next fortnight and 2. this offer expires 19 days from when I purchased my cover so effectively I could receive an expired voucher...

Alright so i rang the AA for a third time, today. Said i wanted a refund, was put through to a really helpful dude who told me i could get a half price MOT and still use my free MOT voucher next year. Very satisfied now. Will add heat to deal and edit my last comment. Maybe add in the description that its a 18 day waiting period MINIMUM until the MOT voucher arrives.

These tyre companies offering free mots would fail a brand new car .funny how they always fail car on items they specialize on .it's been well documented on here to avoid any fast fit centre for a motty

No wonder cars on the main land are cheaper when any cowboy can do an MOT

I'm sure this was on here the other day at a price of £25.99 with £17.01 TCB avaliable ?

Just My 2 pence worth, but I tend to find they are ok. I've used National Tyres a couple of times to Mot a 20 year old car and they have actually been great. As long as your Tyres and exhaust are fine then they no incentive to fail you, unlike an independent who could fail you on anything and do the work to "fix it".

Of course the best thing to do is find a good independent through the good garage scheme!

You may have had good experience at National Tyres. I haven't:
Last year I made the mistake of going to National Tyres. Pre-booked and they still kept me waiting over an hour from the appointment time before they looked at the car.

A colleague has reported that when buying new tyres, his local National Tyres always seem to find a nail in another tyre which funnily enough can't be repaired.

In fairness, there aren't many companies that can claim to successfully repair rusty old nails.

I would go with greenflags £55 recovery option with £20.20 available via Topcashback. It includes nationwide recovery, ie, recovery back home.

Quite often the basic level of cover are not worth having as they charge per mile for recovery.

I would fob the free MOT rubbish off, as nothing is for free....once they've got your car, they will find faults that don't exist.

I take my car to the local council depot, and they have nothing to gain by failing it, as they don't do repair work. They are totally honest.

Sorry cold from me.

My car is a 2008 with some bodywork damage, I take it to a local guy who services and MOTs it. Maybe not the cheapest but he takes quite a liberal view on passing a car with duct tape over jagged metal damage on the car.

Some garages will rip you off, I strongly doubt a big national is any worse for it, probably less so to be fair.

My local Kia Garage always do a MOT for £10 :), that price is for anyone, 2 weeks ago I had my car and my sons car done in the same day , both passed - £20

I went with rescue my car .com for £20 national recovery plus I got £4 back from quidco - not sure how good they will be when I have problems / but I have used cheap company's before and they have seemed very good if only just a little slow!

Edited by: "matthat" 29th Sep 2014

rescue my car sounded very good for £20 , but ive just read the reviews and there utter garbage company so i recommend anyone else just read up first, i personally would not go for this aa deal either , ive had personal bad experiance from national tyres so will avoid. I pay a local garage £20 for my yearly mot for my 10 year old car and yes it as failed but on genuine stuff so im happy to keep going there , but im still looking for a breakdown cover just a recovery would be good , i used to use ic breakdown but they have put there prices up and reduced the cover so im a bit lost at the moment.

Personally, I use A local garage found from the Good Garage Scheme.
goodgaragescheme.com/
goodgaragescheme.com/sma…app

The GGS garage I use, does the annual service and any repairs.
The MOT is done by a different garage, that only does MOTs.

We don't ALL need an MOT once a year. New vehicles do not need an MOT for 3 years. This is a good deal for those driving older vehicles though so heat from me. Breakdown cover is worth having for any aged vehicle. I have used family cover when getting stuck in mud, hitting a pole hole and destroying my tyre, and even a flat battery in cold weather. Also well worth having for my pregnant wife in case she needs roadside assistance in my absence. Always check with your bank to see if you can get cover for a small fee as many people don't even realise they can be entitled to an array of benefits for a little extra per month.

I always use local council MOT test centre and never head any serious problems with my 10y old car. They charge me about £50 but I'm sure I'll not have any unnecessary and expensive surprises.
Find your local council MOT test centre.

Yep my brother took his car to Kwik Fit as they were offering a Free MOT with something or other.

He thought it was a great idea, i told him it was an awful idea. Worse still, when they told him he needed welding and 4 new tyres he went for it and paid £750 rather than driving it away to another test centre.

They should be remaned as quick FIX!

I think these fast-fit places vary a lot between branches - I've used the Greenwich branch of National several times and they've always been very helpful, reasonably priced and have not pointed out any serious faults (spurious or otherwise) on a 16 year old car.

That said, for MOTs I prefer to use a place that does testing only (no servicing or repairs) and has a no-pass-no-fee policy.

Doncaster council charge £38 for cars. I'm not sure about other councils,I suppose they could charge anything up to the maximum allowed.

Don't set me off about kwik fit! They are the worst ever...pressuring vulnerable people, intimidating and truly shocking service...that's what I've experienced anyway.

judging by above posts I think I am really overpaying @ £19 per month. Need to change my breakdown cover

How do those parts and labour claims work? They're only available when your car actually breaks down somewhere? I.e. I can't use them for any sort of preventative maintenance?
