FAQ’s about our Garage Services in Didcot

At Didcot Motor Services, we take great pride in helping our customers in any way that we can. Here, our mechanics answer some of the many queries we receive about our garage services. As local specialists for car repairs, car servicing and MOT testing, we believe in keeping our customers fully informed on the work that we do.


These frequently-asked questions on tyres, clutch repairs, vehicle diagnostics and breakdown services should be of some assistance to all Didcot motorists.


Can I pre-book MOT testing?

Yes. Call us now with the date and time you have in mind and we’ll arrange for MOT testing to be undertaken at a local VOSA-approved facility in Didcot on your behalf.


Are your car repairs competitively priced?

Our aim is to try and beat any quote you may have previously received for car repairs from other mechanics in Didcot and the surrounding Oxfordshire area. We nearly always beat main dealerships, and most independent garages, on price.


How does regular car servicing save me money?

By bringing your vehicle to Didcot Motor Services for regular car servicing, we can minimise future outlay by pinpointing possible faults that could end up costing a small fortune later. Our cost-effective bronze, silver and gold car servicing packages will enable you to keep your vehicle running smoothly while protecting vital engine parts.


Do you carry out breakdown services?

Yes. We offer breakdown services for minor repair work anywhere within a 15-mile radius of our Didcot workshop. If we can’t get your vehicle started, we will arrange for a third party recovery company to take it back to our garage for car repairs. No repair work will ever be started until we have sought your approval.


I’ve been told by a friend that the light on my dashboard is something to do with vehicle diagnostics. Can you clarify please?

If the engine management light has appeared on your dashboard, bring your vehicle to Didcot Motor Services so we can run a test on it. Using advanced vehicle diagnostics, we can quickly find faults. This is done by plugging code readers into the ECU (Engine Control Unit). Vehicle diagnostics let us know exactly where the problem lies in your vehicle.


My clutch keeps slipping and making the engine rev excessively. Are clutch repairs costly?

It all depends on what’s wrong with your clutch. We will carry out an initial inspection of your transmission system, let you know what’s wrong and provide an estimate for the cost of clutch repairs once diagnosed. All garage services provided at our workshop in Didcot are competitively-priced and this includes clutch repair and replacement work.


Do you stock tyres?

Didcot Motor Services have a wide range of top-branded and budget tyres in stock. If there are certain types of tyres you would prefer that we haven’t got on the shelves of our Didcot workshop, please let us know. We can order tyres in on the same day or within 24 hours.


Does air conditioning come under your garage services?

We are able to carry out re-gassing on all vehicles. Didcot Motor Services can also provide a full internal clean and service to rid air conditioning of odours, allergens and pathogens.


Are you able to let me know when my car is due for MOT testing at your Didcot garage?

We have a reminder service available which will let you know by email or text a few weeks before MOT testing or servicing is due. Fill out the form on the Reminder Service page and we’ll do the rest! This is a handy service for customers in Didcot who frequently forget MOT testing or car servicing appointments because they have other things on their mind.


We hope that these Q&A’s have been of some help to you. If you have a query about any of our garage services not listed, call Didcot Motor Services on 01235 817007 now.
