MOT with any service only £25

Autocare Services is your local expert for Class 4 and Class 7 MOTs in Exeter and the surrounding county of Devon. Our technicians are VOSA trained and qualified to undertake inspections on all petrol and diesel models.

If you leave your vehicle with us for repairs in the event of an MOT failure, we never charge for retesting and only apply partial retesting fees for work completed outside of our premises. Flexible booking are available by appointment, take one hour to complete and all of our MOTs in Exeter are available at reduced rates when taken with a full or interim service.

If you have a vehicle that is more than three years old, you are required by law to present it for an annual inspection to ensure it is safe and roadworthy. MOT tests can be undertaken up to one full month before the due date and any days remaining on your current certificate will still be carried forward.


If your vehicle encounters a malfunction, the on-board computer stores a code within the ECU and displays a warning light on the dashboard. Such issues usually require immediate attention and as the leading independent choice for engine diagnostics in Exeter, we have the latest Bosch Diagnostics code reading technology available to identify all sub-system faults.

Once a code is stored, a diagnostic check is the only way to analyse the problem. Autocare Services has the operational capacity to recognise and rectify all faults to ensure problem-free driving in the future. Our engine diagnostics in Exeter are perfect for all air bag, wiring and operational faults and prices start at just £28.80 inc. vat.

After your scan has been completed, we provide a full printout listing the codes stored within your vehicle ECU. This enables us to provide a transparent service that ensures we only complete the rectification work required. Autocare Services LTD will never proceed with changing parts without your full authorisation.

Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaning

We clean the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) instead of replacing in an efficient and fast process that ensures that we save you time and money.  A new DPF can cost anywhere between £600 and £4000 and a longer workshop time so you’d be without your car.  So the best solution is by cleaning the particulate filter instead of replacing.

So what is the problem?

This usually happens when you get a warning light on your dashboard, you may even recognise that your vehicle has less power and an high fuel consumption? This is because the diesel particulate filter (DPF) has only a limited capacity to store particulates burnt in a regeneration process and converted into CO2. Different reasons can mean the regeneration process does not start and in consequence the DPF gets clogged with soot particles.

So what is the solution?

Cleaning the Diesel Particulate Filter, here at Autocare we use a high pressure reverse flow cleaning machine which involves us removing the filter from the vehicle, adding cleaning chemicals and then pushing 200psi of warm water back through the filter in reverse to flush not only soot but ash and all other contaminates back out the way they came in restoring your filter back to its original condition.

  • Used when regeneration is no longer possible
  • Cleaning to almost new condition possible
  • No expensive new installation
  • Cleaning without disassembly of the particulate filter
  • Non-flammable
  • Neutral ash and metal-free formulation
  • Evaporates completely
  • Compatible with other materials

At Autocare Services, we can simply clean your DPF in Exeter to ensure your car is in a roadworthy condition, it costs far less than you think, just £294 inc. vat, which includes removal, cleaning, replacement and regeneration, so don’t wait until it’s too late, call us today on: 01392 203 156 or contact us through the website here.
