SPRING 2021 UPDATE
Normal Opening Hours
Easter Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday we will be closed
It’s a year now since the MOT extensions were first started which has meant that for some people your vehicle tax renewal date and MOT date are no longer in line. With this in mind we strongly advise you to double check your MOT due date here.
We strongly advise you to get booked in using our online booking system so that you don’t get caught out later on with low MOT appointment availablilty.
You can book as far in advance as you like and the booking secures your slot permanently.
We can arrange a Hands Free Handover Pick Up and Drop Off service for your vehicle if you are unable to leave home.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
If your vehicle age is 3 years or older you are required by law to have an annual safety check, the ministry of transport test, commonly known as the MOT Test.
The purpose of an MOT test is to ensure the vehicle meets the minimum safety level required by law.
At Gainsford Hall Workshop we use the latest specification fully automated test lane, meaning your MOT test is carried out to the highest possible standard.
Whether you would like to tie your MOT test in with your regular service, or require just an MOT, please contact us and we’ll be happy to arrange an appointment to suit your needs.

What our customers say
Very trustworthy. On several occasions they've advised that work that I thought might need doing was not necessary. I'm convinced that the quality of their workmanship is considerably better and also cheaper than the manufacturer's approved service centres (my experience is with BMW & Mercedes) and I guess that's partly because they don't provide the fancy frills that you don't need such as a plush reception and a town location. They seem to take a real pride in their work.
Truly lovely guys all working hard, eager to give the best possible experience to their customers. They know their stuff and are very honest with what your options are. You will never find hidden fees with this company. I have never spent more than an hour waiting for repairs to be completed. Can not recommend these guys enough, they are fantastic.
