Its not how far, the cycle is a very specific way of driving a car under certain conditions to run the monitors. Everyday driving may never run a monitor depending on your driving habits. Thats why shops charge for this service to get the monitors to run.

So I will have to take to a shop so they can drive the car?

That is my suggestion as they are familiar with the conditions of driving it.
