Vehicle Lighting Repair and Replacement in Hamilton

A damaged vehicle light can be a hassle to fix. It can attract unwanted attention and possibly result in you failing your next WOF. At Grimmer Motors, we can offer repair and replacement solutions for damaged lighting in your vehicle. We currently offer the following services:

Modern vehicles have a wide range of sophisticated lighting, from LED tail lights and indicators to an array of various new technologies used for the headlights.

Having a broken vehicle light can create safety risks. Therefore it is wise to make sure your headlights, brake lights, and indicators are functioning correctly. This way, other drivers can see you and know when you are about to turn or use your brakes.


Have you failed a WOF for your car’s lighting?

You may fail a Warrant of Fitness if your car’s lights are:

  • Not working
  • Only working on one side
  • Flickering during use
  • Failing to provide sufficient illumination

At Grimmer Motors, we can adjust and replace your car’s various lights so that it passes a Warrant of Fitness.


Is it safe to drive with damaged lights?

No, it is not safe to drive with damaged lights, particularly at night or in rainy/foggy weather. Proper lighting is essential for safe driving, both for the driver and for other motorists on the road. When a vehicle’s lights are damaged or not working correctly, it can significantly reduce visibility and increase the risk of an accident, particularly in low-light conditions or at night.

Your car may also be more of a target for the police if the lights aren’t working. They will often offer compliance, but may give you a ticket.

If you have to drive with damaged lights, aim to do so during the day when your car is still clearly visible to other drivers on the road.

Booked the ol' Fuga in for a service this week. I dropped it off early to take advantage of the free clean and asked if I could have it ready at 3 pm. The service went well and they... pointed out things that would need attention in the future. I like the introduction of the vehicle service and repair log book. Which has all my previous services and fix ups recorded in it. And the Fuga was freshly cleaned and ready at 3pm, like they said. Thanks Team
