How much does it cost to get brake pads changed?

25/03/2021

Brakes are the most basic and essential safety mechanism on your vehicle, with the very important job of stopping you from hurtling into the vehicle in front. They should be checked and maintained regularly to ensure they’re fit for purpose.

If you’ve noticed any difference in the quality of your braking, it’s a good idea to get them looked at by a qualified mechanic as soon as possible.

How much do new brake pads and discs cost?

The average cost of a brake pad and discs repair in the UK is £250.

The cost of the replacement can vary a lot based on the make and model of your car and location. Typical prices we found vary from £189 in Scotland and £276 in South East England.

When do brake pads need replacing?

If you live in an area with a lot of slow-moving traffic and your brakes are used frequently, you may want to get them checked often. Generally, the average brake pad will need replacing after 50,000 miles.

If you’ve ever felt a judder, a squealing or screeching sound when you break this may be a sign you need to do something about it.
