A local family run business catering for all your motoring needs.

Giving you the experience of a main dealer, without the main dealer prices.

We at TQ1 MOT Centre know your car is more than a tool that gets you from point A to B, it's your freedom.

Your car lets you complete essential daily activities such as travelling to and from work, buying groceries, and picking up the children from school. You depend on it, so it's important your car recieves quality repairs and servicing.

When you bring your car to TQ1 MOT Centre, we make sure your car leaves trouble-free so you can have your freedom, and your peace of mind.

After having spent many years in the motor industry we wanted to create a better experience for our customers, as we appreciate garages and dealerships can sometimes be intimidating places, especially for female customers.

So that's why the TQ1 MOT Service and Repair Centre was created.

Perfectly located on Berachah Road, Torquay town centre is just a few minutes walk from the garage. Or we can give you a lift!

We have created a comfortable reception area, with free tea and coffee, where you can even view your car or van mot via a television screen. And high priority was also given to creating nice, separate ladies and gents toilets.

We have experienced technicians here too. This enables us to offer full commercial service combined with our class 7 mot bay as well as a vast knowledge of all other makes whilst working in the independent sector. 

We have invested in the very latest equiptment with the biggest four post lift enabling us to accommodate anything from small cars to long wheelbased vehicals weighing up to 6000kg.

The TQ1 MOT Service and Repair Centre carries out MOT tests for

  • Class 1 Motorcycles up to 200cc
  • Class 2 Motorcycles over 200cc
  • Class 4 cars, small vans and motorhomes
  • Class 5 minibuses and ambulances
  • Class 7 commercials up to 35000kg


Servicing starts from £64.99 and vehicles are repaired to the highest standards, using only the best quality parts and oils.


Our tyre bay keeps a low priced tyre stock which enables us to fit tyres including valve and balance from £33.54.
