Average Job Cost


The average cost to replace your tail light bulb is $20 - $100. Pricing may vary based on the type of car you have, as well as the type of (and quality) auto shop that you go to. At NuBrakes, our technicians come to your office or home to do the repair. We don’t markup our parts and have minimal overhead, meaning, we provide you a convenient and low-cost repair option.

When evaluating the cost of headlight bulb replacement, you may want to consider:

  • The quality and brand of the bulb
  • Your vehicle's manufacturer and model
  • Auto shop’s labor costs


It’s important to be in tune with your tail light bulb replacement options and how the type of shop will affect the pricing they offer to you. Dealerships will always be the most expensive option for tail light bulb replacements. Traditional brick and mortar repair shops will typically provide more affordable automotive service prices than the dealership. However, mobile mechanic services, like NuBrakes, usually provide the best prices because they have significantly less operational overhead… And not to mention, a much more convenient experience… A true win-win.


Still have questions about tail light bulb replacements? We're here to help.

What is a tail light?

Tail lights are found at the back of your vehicle. They illuminate when your headlights are on and shine brighter when you're stepping on the brake. When driving at night, they are signs to other drivers that you’re on the road. While tail lights are red in color, they usually have white lights beside them to indicate that a vehicle is in reverse.

How do I know when my tail light bulb needs to be replaced?

Here are some signs of failing tail light bulbs:

1. Notice when your headlight is on and the tail light is off.

2. When pressing the brakes and tail light turns off.

If you notice any of these signs make sure to replace your tail light bulb with a professional mechanic.

Is it safe to drive with a burnt out or broken tail light bulb?

As part of the safety feature of your vehicle and for the safety of others on the road, you shouldn't be driving with burnt-out or broken tail light bulbs; however, in some cases, we might not notice them as they may fail while we're driving, when this happens it would be difficult to notice as they are mounted at the back of your car.

Why should I replace my tail light bulb?

Tail lights are ways of communicating with other vehicles on the road. It’s for drivers to be aware of your presence to avoid any possible car accidents.
