Law: Is it necessary to take the wheels off to check the brakes?

Warwickshire Trading Standards recently prosecuted Sutton Park Motor Company Ltd after a vehicle was returned from servicing without the wheels having been removed.

The report from the garage referred to worn brake pads, and leaking rear wheel cylinder, which an engineer concluded must be incorrectly diagnosed or missed completely.

They were fined £4,000 plus £5,000 costs.
