Brake Performance Safety Inspection.


Having brakes that function properly is something that every driver considers a priority. Here’s some information on how your brakes should be safely manufactured, fitted, and serviced.

Brake Performance Inspection and Testing can reduce wear and maintenance costs by identifying component concerns, limitations, and failure potential before they become realities and total brake failure.

Know your vehicle will stop straight and in the shortest possible distance in an emergency.

Maximise your fuel consumption by minimising tyre drag.

Get the best performance from your tyres and save money by not replacing them as often.

Know that your shock absorbers are working correctly for optimum suspension performance and good tyre contact with the road.

Avoid future hassles and inconvenience of brake, suspension or tyre trouble.
