We’re giving out 6,000 free vehicle health checks and you don’t even need to be a Green Flag customer.
The checks are available thanks to help from our friends at Who Can Fix My Car.
A lot of vehicles across the UK have sat idle during the COVID-19 lockdown, and may no longer be in a good, roadworthy state. So, there’s no better time to get some peace of mind and have your vehicle checked by a local expert.
The check covers:
- Tyre tread depth
- Tyre pressure
- Oil level
- Water level
- Washer fluid
- Battery health
- Wiper blade condition
- Brake condition
- Bodywork corrosion
To get your check, visit the Who Can Fix My Car website. Enter your postcode to search for garages in your area where the check is available. Once you’ve selected a garage, you’ll be able to arrange a time and date that works best for you.
If you’re unable to get the check in your area, please make sure to come back to this page regularly, as we’re looking to extend the service to everyone that needs it.
The checks are available at a first-come-first-served basis, and must be booked by 31 October 2020.

What if I change my mind?
If you set up an account when you book your check on the Who Can Fix My Car website, you can manage your booking and make cancellations directly on their site. The only time you can’t is if your booking is within the next 24 hours.
If you don’t set up an account, you’ll be emailed the garage’s details, and you’ll need to talk to the garage directly to cancel your booking.
I’m not happy with the service, who do I speak to?
You can leave a review on the Who Can Fix My Car website. Or, you can get in touch with the garage itself. You’ll be emailed their details when you make your booking. If you don’t get a response you’re happy with, then please contact the customer services team at Who Can Fix My Car to follow up.
The website for finding a garage isn’t working, what should I do?
If the website isn’t working, please get in touch with us and let us know.
How long will it take for the garage to contact me to confirm my booking?
You’ll be sent an email after booking your check online which will confirm everything. It will also give you your garage’s details, if you ever need to get in touch with them directly.
There aren’t any garages showing in my area. Can I not use the service?
There are some gaps in the network at the moment, and we’re working hard to get garages signed up in these areas, so please do keep checking back.
Are all the garages enforcing social distancing?
Garages have been advised by the Government to adhere to social distancing guidelines. Whilst we don’t have direct management over practices within the garages, we are advising them to ensure that they observe these guidelines.
If you feel that the garage you’ve visited is not observing social distancing, please leave feedback on the website.
I’m disabled and / or I’m not able to get out of my car. Am I still able to have the health check?
When making your booking, you can let the garage know any important additional information. Let them know about your needs when you book, and the garage will endeavour to do what they can to ensure they can help you.
You can always get in touch with your garage after making your booking (you’ll be sent an email with their details).
Can a technician come to my home to complete the check?
Due to the free nature of the check, garages are unable to complete mobile checks at the moment.
