Sorting the brakes after 9 years

Any advice on what to do with my brakes before I drive the car after 9 years in the garage.

It's my last job before I book it in for It's MOT.

Thanks.

I didn't know if it was worth buying new pads.

I have been pushing the car out of the garage so I know there not stuck.
Will just give it a fresh fluid change.

Probably worth checking the calliper pistons move freely and the pads are not stuck in the callipers. Same for the rear brakes, check the brake linings arenít separating from the steel part of the pads and shoes. also check the handbrake mechanism and cables are free
