What comes first to your mind while driving a car, when we say you have a near emergency condition on the road? Yes, the answer most likely is applying brakes to stop the vehicle.

Driving around in a city without adequately maintaining your brakes can cause them to wear out substantially. The constant stop and go routine of the town puts enormous pressure on your brakes and hence, cause them to wear out quickly. Brakes can cause you to fail your MOT test because it is one of the essential things to provide safety on the road.
How can you discern that you have faulty brakes?
When your brakes make unpleasant noises: When your brake linings are worn out, the brakes start to make contact with the steel which causes a high pitched screeching sound that is readily differentiable from the low noise the new brake pads make.
Vibrating car: If you feel vibrations in your vehicle while applying brakes, there is a misalignment in your brakes. To avoid any fatal situation on the road, you should get it repaired as soon as possible.
Check the warning lights: Modern cars are fitted with sensitive sensors and a powerful computer. If there is anything wrong with your vehicle or the smallest of its parts, your computer might tell you to check a specific component. There are various warning lights on your dashboards that will tell you that something is wrong. One of them is to check your brakes lights. If they are on, get your car to us; we will get to the root cause and also repair it for you.
