Speaking on the Martin Lewis Money Show, Mr Lewis said: “Take your car to Halfords if you want a free winter car check.
“Book online, it checks your batteries, wipers, lights and more. No purchase necessary but they may try and upsell you.”
Halfords has confirmed that mechanics will check the health of car batteries and the condition of headlights and brake lights during the test.
The condition of a vehicle’s wiper blades and windscreen will also be checked which can prove vital this winter.
