When you get your picture taken for your driver’s license, do you realize you have to look at that photo for the next 7 years? You may want to take a moment before you go, to look your best. Here are some quick tips to get you the best photo possible.

On your way to the DMV, stop by any of Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Centers 4 locations to serve you gas or help maintain the vitality of your vehicle.

Dress appropriately

There are certain colors that you should not wear when having an identification photo taken. Good news is the picture typically will be shoulders and up only – so your outfit is not really a huge issue.

  • White is not suggested. Often, the background for the photos is a light color, and not only will your clothing blend in, if you are fair skinned, you will also look like you are very pale.
  • Black, not suggested. On the other side of the coin, you should not wear black for your photo either, again because it will make lighter skin look pale.
  • Soft color, yes, such as blue, green or pink.

Fix your hair

  • It is probably best if your hair is done in the style that you regularly wear. Of course, you may end up getting your hair cut or styled differently after you get your license, but for the most part, we tend to keep the same hairstyle for many months at a time, especially men.
  • Make sure that your hair is clean and neat, and that there is nothing hanging in your eyes. It is important that your eyes be completely visible in your photo.

Wear your glasses

  • If you are required to wear glasses when you are driving, then make sure that you are wearing them when you have your identification photo taken.
  • Make sure that you do not wear sunglasses. If you have them on, you will be required to remove them before the photo is taken.
  • If you wear contact lenses, it is recommended that you do not wear lenses that will change the color of your eyes. Your driver’s license will state your eye color, and they need to be the same color in the photo as they are in reality.

Now, smile. See it wasn’t that bad.

At Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center we take preventive car care maintenance seriously. Preventive maintenance repair is based upon your vehicle manufacturer recommended maintenance schedule to ensure your vehicle runs efficiently and lasts longer. Your technician will run down the check list from the owners manual and make suggestions according to what is recommended for your vehicle at the current interval of mileage.

Why are Routine Maintenance Services Important?
Vehicle components and parts naturally wear out over time, and road hazards can negatively impact critical components. By adhering to the preventive maintenance schedule in your vehicle owner’s manual, you will help ensure that your vehicle always runs at optimal conditions.

Highly Recommended Mileage Service Intervals for Most Effective Preventive Maintenance. Click for more information.

There are additional mileage services recommended for most vehicles, the above mentioned are just a few of the major mileage service recommendations from our technicians. If you are currently experiencing a problem, you may want to check your mileage to determine whether you should schedule a service or not.

Depending on whether you purchased your vehicle new or used, may determine whether you have a warranty. If you do have a warranty, it may be contingent upon performing regular services for your vehicle. Depending on your vehicle’s manufacturer, avoiding preventive maintenance on certain parts and components has the potential to void warranty coverage.

During a scheduled maintenance service at the above mentioned mileage intervals, our staff may inspect the function of the following items and more to help ensure that your vehicle functions efficiently.

  • Steering System
  • Suspension Components
  • Transmission
  • Exhaust System
  • Check Battery
  • Fluids
  • Filters
  • Belts
  • Hoses
  • Brakes
  • Ball Joints
  • Axles

We are also able to review exterior and interior lights, examine windshield wiper blades, inspect hinges and locks, and conduct both tire wear inspection and inflation checks. It is important to schedule preventive maintenance for these and other components to ensure they continue to work as intended.

Remember that environmental conditions may affect your ideal preventive maintenance schedule. Depending on your environment and driving behavior (frequent stop & go or rough roads may impact wear and tear on your vehicle), you may need to seek more frequent inspections and replacements. Contact us today or call 1-775-525-2420 to learn more about recommended maintenance service intervals for your vehicle.

Our technicians promote preventive repair because they believe that by keeping up with your vehicle manufacturer recommended maintenance schedule it will help your vehicle run smoother for longer.
