As a vehicle owner, you have multiple balls to juggle to keep your car or van safe and roadworthy, not to mention meeting your own legal obligations. There’s your annual MOT testing and car servicing, vehicle diagnostics checks and the lingering possibility of sudden car repairs. When you’re already busy with family life and work, the last thing you want is to spend time looking for a reputable company you know and trust for reliability, quality and honesty.

But we don’t just expect you to take our word for it. Below, we have outlined how our company provides complete car care.
The best way to keep your car or van looking and performing its best is to take a proactive approach to maintenance and repairs. While this will never eliminate the need for reactive work, it drastically reduces the chances of such situations arising.
The purpose of MOT testing, car servicing and vehicle diagnostics checks is to keep your vehicle performing at optimal standards for as long as possible. They keep your car or van on the road while maximising its resale value.
By law, you cannot drive a vehicle without a valid MOT certificate. This makes your annual MOT a legal requirement. When you visit our MOT garage in Sevenoaks, we perform a multi-point inspection (visual checks only) to ensure your vehicle meets the required standards for roadworthiness, safety and exhaust emissions.
You are not legally obliged to undertake car servicing. However, if you think you can save some money by avoiding it, this is only a false economy. Services check all the features that MOT testing doesn’t. What’s more, these inspections are not visual-only, meaning we can check far more thoroughly.
As a result, yearly servicing finds small issues that require minor, cost-effective car repairs. When you avoid your service, you are far more likely to face significant, expensive repair work in the future.
What’s more, if you have an accident, and the issue lays in a part that a service would have maintained, your insurance company may not pay out. In addition, if you decide to sell a vehicle with no service history, you will find the resale value falls well below your expectations.
No matter how diligent you are with MOT testing, car servicing and vehicle diagnostics checks, there’s always the chance of an accident or sudden part failure. Of course, the proactive approach plays a huge role in reducing the likelihood of such incidents.
This is most evident in car repairs. Regular visits to our MOT garage for small fixes here and there are more affordable and less disruptive than simply waiting for a large-scale problem. The latter is more likely to immediately take your car off the road and turn your daily routines upside down for an extended period.
Your vehicle is a finely tuned machine. When one component starts to fail, it’s not an isolated issue. The malfunctioning part starts to affect the performance of supporting or nearby components too. As a result, a lack of proactive work often leads to the major problems that require reactive services.
Whatever your reactive needs in the Sevenoaks area, you can rely on Alan Johnson Vehicle Repairs. We provide a full range of car repairs that will get you back out on the road as safely and quickly as possible.
