Vehicle Workshop & MOT Testing Centre

The business started in the 1940’s by Frank Howkins and has evolved from a single workshop and outdoor concrete ramp used for servicing HGV’s and M1 Motorway plant.

Today, remaining a family business, we are a busy VOSA approved MOT testing station, vehicle repair garage and tyre fitting centre. We carry out servicing, all parts and engine replacements and diagnostic testing on all vehicle marques, with the ability to upload regular vehicle servicing records to all vehicle manufacturers. We also provide timely annual MOT reminders.

There is a separately run car wash facility on site so we are happy to arrange anything from a basic outside wash to a full valet whilst your vehicle is being serviced or undergoing it’s MOT test.
Please enquire at the time of booking in your vehicle.

We are members of Trust My Garage and the Independent Garage Association, part of the Retail Motor Industry Federation.

As a small, independent family business, we are proud of our highly qualified staff members who have all been with us for between 12 and 32 years and therefore know our customers and their vehicles well. Our good reputation is a result of being able to provide a personal service with friendly, honest advice and reasonable rates for work carried out.

A courtesy car is available by arrangement (subject to conditions) so that customers can leave their vehicle with us all day if necessary.

Telephone (not email) bookings only, please do not hesitate to call to resolve your vehicle-related problems.
