MOTORISTS in Burton are paying more than most on making repairs to their vehicles to ensure they get through MoT tests.
A study by retail giant Halfords found that drivers in the town were paying more than 50 per cent more than the average cost.
While the UK average spend on rectifying faults is £72 per vehicle, motorists in Burton pay £109.
Most in need of repair on cars are faulty headlights, tail lights and indicators
Rory Carlin, from Halfords, said: “The cost of motoring today means that motorists should seize every opportunity to reduce their bills.
“A simple five-minute check to identify the most common causes of MoT failure, and sort out simple jobs before they worsen, can save money by avoiding bigger bills in the long-run as well as the inconvenience of an MoT failure and a re-test.”
