Frequently Asked Questions
Is my nearest dealership now open?
All of our dealerships are currently open for both sales and aftersales. In line with government guidance, we have introduced some new safety measures which include the use of PPE, social distancing policies and new working practices. The safety and wellbeing of all colleagues and customers will always be our number one concern.
Our Aftersales Departments are open for servicing, MOTs and accident repair, but it is vital that you make an appointment. Our Sales showrooms are also open, and appointments are recommended to avoid disappointment - especially if you would like to arrange a test drive. We have produced a video which explains the measures we've put into place to keep everyone safe. Click Here to watch now.
As always, our team is available to help with any enquiries via live chat, telephone or email, and we have a fantastic range of new and used cars, vans and motorcycles available to view and reserve online.

My vehicle's MOT is due. What should I do?
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency have announced new rules on MOT testing for cars, vans and motorcycles.
MOTs due between 30 March 2020 and 31st July 2020 have been extended by 6 months, but all vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition and drivers can be prosecuted if they drive an unsafe vehicle.
All vehicles due an MOT from 1st August 2020 will need to have their MOT test as scheduled. They will not be entitled to a 6 month extension. Our Aftersales Departments are now taking bookings, so if you'd like to schedule your MOT now, we're here to help.
