MOT Testing & Quality Repair Work at Spring Street & Wood Street Garages

Our MOT service is reliable and efficient, with computerised booking, documenting and recording systems and with our highly organised work ethic, we give a wholly personal service. Our technicians are happy to discuss your vehicle with you along with any concerns or questions you may have. We can even inform you near to the time your MOT is due so you wont have to give it a second thought.

We carry out a high volume of MOT’s, and have 5 service / repair ramps and an independent MOT bay at the Spring Street garage, and 9 service / repair ramps plus 2 independent MOT bays at our Wood Street garage.

Both of these garages are authorised Class 4 MOT testing stations, enabling us to test standard cars and light vans. The Wood Street garage is also VOSA approved to carry out Class 7 MOTs, covering large vans. We are frequently able to offer discounted MOT fees, and also offer a re-test free of charge if any repairs required are done by ourselves. If repair work is required you can be sure of an exceptionally competitive rate, and what’s more, we will strive to complete this repair work on the same day for your convenience.

Unipart Approved Clutch & Brake Replacement & Repairs, Tyre Replacement Fitting Service


John Atherton Autos are a Unipart Approved Clutch Fitting Centre, and these excellent quality clutches bring value for money and reliability. Options include replacement of certain parts of the clutch, a full reconditioned clutch or a brand new fully guaranteed clutch. In our experience, the last option is usually the best way to go and one that we recommend, saving time and money in the long run. We are a Unipart brake safety centre, and when fitting replacement brakes, we use only OEM approved brake systems. Our prices compare very favourably to even fast fit operators and this also applies to our tyre replacement service.

We offer a wide range of tyres from quality manufactured budget tyres to top selling names. You will find amongst our selection, Japanese budget tyres which represent tremendous value. We use the American Butler tyre fitting machine which has an outstanding reputation, and allows us to give an exceedingly versatile service. We will fit tyres bought by the customer, including low profile tyres. We will fit your standard or oversized exhaust too and have a choice of exhausts from budget to higher quality.
