Keep track of your tyre pressures
Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems
Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) constantly monitor tyre pressures using tyre sensors in all four tyres and alert the driver with a visual and/or audible warning if there are any changes within the pressure or temperature. Having TPMS fitted to your vehicle improves your vehicles overall safety as the system checks tyre pressure every few seconds, thus reducing your chance of a blow out or accident related to incorrect tyre pressures. TPMS can also save you money, as having the correct tyre pressure maximises tyre life and also helps improve fuel efficiency.
New vehicles fitted with TPMS and registered from 1st January 2013 will also have their TPMS system tested as part of the first MOT test carried out. This means that if your vehicle falls into this category and the TPMS is not functioning correctly, you could fail your MOT test.
