Brake Inspections at ATS Euromaster

What our free visual brake test includes

Our complimentary Primary Front Brake Inspection includes a visual check of your brake pads, brake discs, callipers and visible brake pipes. Our experts will examine the condition of your brakes and advise you if any parts appear unsafe or worn.

The visual brake inspection usually takes around 30 minutes to complete.

What our full brake inspections include

Our Full Brake Inspection offers a thorough examination of the condition of all of your brake components. This will ensure your safety, as our first priority, and help prevent more costly repair bills in the future. This inspection provides a comprehensive brake reading and a full braking system check, which includes:

  • Checking digital measurements of brake pad, disc, shoe and drum wear
  • Checking the condition and operation of callipers wheel cylinders
  • Inspecting the condition of brake hoses and brake pipes (checking for leaks or corrosion)
  • Testing handbrake performance and assessing cable and linkage condition
  • Brake Fluid moisture content test
  • Checking master cylinder and servo operation
  • Inspecting brake light condition and operation
  • A full report of the condition of your brakes
  • Free, no obligation quote on any potential work to be carried out

If we find your brake system is in good condition, we will give your system a quick clean and adjustment before reassembling your brake components to ensure optimum performance. The full brake checking service takes roughly an hour to complete.

Our technicians may find that work does need to be carried out on your vehicle's brakes after a full inspection. In this case, the cost of the inspection will be deducted from the brake work if it is carried out within seven days of the inspection.

Brake Check FAQs

Why are my brakes squealing?

If you notice that your brakes are squealing, it's a sign that your brake pads are likely overly worn. Squealing brakes are usually the first sign that your brake pads are worn and need replacing, so you should make sure to get them checked and then replaced if necessary. Find out more about squealing brakes on our blog.

What is a brake check?

A brake check refers to an inspection of the condition of your car brakes. The meaning of a brake check can differ in terms of how comprehensive it is. At ATS, we offer a free visual brake check, as well as a full brake test that involves checking components such as brake pads, discs, callipers and more.

How long do brake discs last?

Generally, brake discs have a lifespan of around 30,000-70,000 miles before they need replacing. However, like many components in your car, this may depend on usage, your driving style and how often you have a car service.
