Here at Savoy Autocentres we take the safety of our colleagues and our valued customers very seriously. We have systems and procedures in place to meet current standards. We are ‘open as usual’ but are assessing the situation and will keep our clients informed of any changes. For peace of mind we are always contactable via telephone, email, website and our social media platforms for any assistance you may require.
In the light of the current situation Savoy Autocentres offers a FREE car pick up and drop off service for Car Servicing, MOT and tyres.

CORONAVIRUS KEY WORKER STATEMENT
Savoy Autocentre Group is fully committed to supporting the UK Government and the stance its taking in response to the Coronavirus.
Keeping in line with the Government guidance for schools, colleges and local communities on maintaining educational provision published on 19th March 2020, we maintain that our staff who are involved directly with tyre fitting & distribution, essential vehicle maintenance and repair and other repairs fulfil the definition of Key Workers and are critical to keeping the road transport network moving.
Savoy Autocentre Customers include many individuals and organisations, including official supplier to Humberside Police, transport & haulage companies, community nursing, emergency workers, teachers and many other important sectors who all rely on us to ensure their cars, vans & HGV are legal and road worthy to continue to carry out their vital roles
Guidance: Further businesses and premises to close” published by Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government on 23rd March 2020.
Extract from Guidance for schools, colleges and local authorities on maintaining educational provision, published 19 March 2020:
“Transport: this includes those who will keep the air, water, road and rail passenger and freight transport modes operating during the COVID-19 response, including those working on transport systems through which supply chains pass.”
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency has confirmed car, van or motorcycle’s MOT expiry date will be extended by 6 months if it’s due on or after 30 March 2020 – but you must keep your vehicle safe to drive. If your MOT was due before then the six month extension does not apply and must have a new valid MOT if you are to use it on the road.
MOT tests will still take place even though the government is trying to minimise social contact and coronavirus transmission risks.
We are offering a full normal MOT, which we believe is the best way to keep your vehicle safe and road legal. We also offer a Free BOSCH Vehicle Health Check book online – which, although not as in depth as an MOT covers many points that help to keep your vehicle roadworthy.
You can be fined up to £2,500, be banned from driving and get 3 penalty points for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition. You can still take your vehicle to be repaired at the nearest open garage. The government is allowing them to remain open.
