Tyre Safety at Quay Auto Centre
Penalties of illegal tyres:
The maximum fine which a court can impose for using a vehicle with a defective tyre is £2,500 and three penalty points (£5,000 in the case of a goods vehicle or a vehicle constructed or adapted to carry more than eight passengers).
If a vehicle is fitted with more than one defective tyre, you can be summonsed for each tyre which is illegal. Disqualification is also possible in certain circumstances.
Each bald or defective tyre carries a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points so if all four aren't up to standard you could be looking at a fine of £10,000, 12 points and an automatic ban.Find out more
