- Sufficient means for communicating with the driver.
Once we have completed the general stage we move to the more thorough inspection of the vehicle which includes:
- Other Under Bonnet.
- Vehicle Emissions Check.
- Wheels and Tyres.
- Chassis/ Sub-Frame.
- Body Exterior.
- Body Interior.
- Other such as Lights and Horn.
