    Hi

    My car is due it's MOT and service soon and I'm just wondering where the drivers in Glasgow go. I took it for it's first service at the dealer and they scan the fob as it gives them access to the cars computer they said, and I have no service book as that's all online so I'm wondering it there's anyone other than the dealer that has access to that.

    My previous car went to the dealer initially until I felt I was being overcharged. I then took it to a local garage who looked after it for years but I know they will not have access to the computerised systems that the dealer uses.

    I just wondered if anyone had any advice before I book something.

    Thanks

    Gillian

    I've used them for nearly 15 years and they have a great local reputation. They are always busy so if you do need work done / an MOT then do book early.
    Again they can update records online.
