    In a pickle after my suspension failed while on holiday in Kippford. They sorted out the issue, kept me in the loop and informed - was ready for collection when they said it would be. Great service and didn’t break the bank. Mark Beever 28th July 2021.

    Had an engine warning light come on whilst on holiday. Hyundai let me down but this garage came up trumps. Booked me in same day. Called in early as engine light went out. Spoke to mechanic and gave symptoms before I had checked air filter. Really nice mechanic. Didn't try and rip me off by checking codes for no reason

    We needed an emergency quick fix while touring around Scotland (many 100s of miles from home) and were a bit wary of going to a new (to us) and untested garage. However Bryan Swales Auto Repairs were brilliant - understood the issue right and fixed the car in less than 20 minutes. Very professional and the price was reasonable too. We are very grateful and have no hesitation in recommending... Read More

What’s an MOT? Why do I need one?

It’s the mandatory health check for your car to determine if it’s roadworthy and meets specific emission standards.

If your car is over 3 years old, it must have passed its MOT. If not, you could face a £1,000 fine and invalid insurance; even points on your license.

When is my MOT due?

An MOT is due annually. If you’re unsure when your last one was, get in touch. We can find out for you. No problem.

After your first MOT with us, we’ll even send you a friendly reminder 4 weeks before your next one is due.

Can I book in early?

Champing at the bit? Want to get your MOT out of the way? We don’t blame you.

You can bring your car for its MOT up to one month before your MOT is due without facing any penalties. 

How quickly can you get me in?

To make sure your MOT in Castle Douglas goes as smoothly as possible, we try to make sure you never have to wait more than a few days for your car to have its MOT.

We’ll keep you in the loop...

Our ethos is, to be honest, hardworking and transparent, which is why we’re always totally open and honest with you when it comes to your MOT. We appreciate it can be quite a stressful time.

Once you’re in, your car will go through an initial assessment, which helps us to inform you of any repairs that may be required prior to issuing your MOT. If you agree, we’ll make those repairs straight away.

Our MOTs take about 60 mins. So, if you decide to sit and wait, there’ll always be hot drinks, biscuits and even cake for you to enjoy.

I’ve read the law is changing – how will that impact me?

It’s nothing to worry about. New categories have been added to deem whether your car is roadworthy or not, and extra checks have been added to the list that must be undertaken.  

It won’t cost you any extra. But, it will ensure a safer vehicle than ever before.
