Excellent service. The mechanic went to the trouble of discussing what they had done which was very much appreciated. The receptionist was very friendly.will definitely be back.
Good quick helpful servive would happily recommend.
2 years in a row I’ve had a full service and MOT with Drivers Autocentre. Never had any issues car passed first time and definitely the lowest price I could find. Will use again next year
Did the work fast
Great service picked car up dropped it off first class service no hidden cost
My MOT was over due so I was really saved on this one. I needed 2 new tyres before it could pass so they got ordered in for the next morning then my mot went in. Would definitely go back thanks again
Very good experience. Told us what our fault was for free and explained it and why the high cost.
Great friendly service would highly recommend and will definitely use this garage again
There are a number of things I really liked about Kerr Tech Motor Engineers Limited. Stevie is what I call a 'solution conscious' mechanic. He worked out how to get my car back to normal instead of other garages who just provided problems. He kept me informed throughout with pictures of what was wrong and what he was going to do to fix it. It was expensive but could have been a lot more and so I think he did an outstanding job. I would not hesitate to recommend him or use him again.
Fast, friendly service at short notice.
Prompt courteous service
Friendly, efficient - job done. Really pleased with the price also (half what I was quoted for identical work and parts from Arnold Clark). Highly recommended, and I'll be using Bishopbriggs MOT Centre as my go-to garage from now on.
The job was done on time, I got my car back on time. Still driving it and it seems the EGR fault has been fixed. Hopefully no issue after many days driving. Thanks for your help.
The garage was very good to deal with and work was done to a very high standard. Will use again.
Timing chain replacement Great garage very friendly and accommodating will use again and will be telling all my friends about the great service Thanks for fixing my car
Called and arranged a date and time and even though they were only able to pick up the car at half 4, still had it back to me that night. Great service
Excellent prompt service
Great mechanics, sorted my service the next day and replaced my coil pack all within the same day.
Decided that I was not going to be ripped off by dealership prices for service anymore , wish I had done it sooner ! These guys were brilliant and a FRACTION of the cost of the dealer !
Exceptional service and probably the most trustworthy garage I have ever used. After getting a quote of over £500 from my car dealer, the team at Drive did the exact same service for £400 less. No you need replacement parts discussion, just a very honest and very reliable garage. 100% recommended.
Great service and price had all brake pads and disk done also hand break adjusted and service done try getting that at a main dealership. Mick also advised of any other repairs needing done honestly would highly recommend!!!!
Hello we would 100% recommend drive motors. the service was impeccable. Mick picked the car up at the time he said he would and dropped it off again. All work was completed. Brilliant service from start to finish plus the cost quoted was significantly lower than everywhere else. Our 2 other tyres will need replaced soon and we know who we wil be going to. Thanks again
Excellent garage,good communication,speedy repairs,the owner even bought me a cup of tea while I waited on my car being repaired,I will recommend and I will be using drive motors again in future,5 star garage

I was very pleased with the service that i received. I would highly recommend and i will definitely be going back whenever my car needs work!

Only gave it 5 stars because you can't leave 6! Fantastic service and price and great bunch of guys.
They were really good
Was so fast and efficient, car looked great when finished was the best offer and best outcome I could have had
Paul and Danny couldn't been any better. Done a great job on my Audi as I damaged the front bumper. Now looks brand new. Thanks guys!
Not often do you get someone looking at your car and offering to do it less than the original quote. That's honest. Excellent standard of work as well. Have already recommended to friends and family.
They quoted relatively best price compared to other body shops.However, the quality of work is excellent, and they completed the job within one day as promised.Besides, the body shop is located a very near to the train station, which is convenient, too.I would recommend this garage to my friends.
Hopefully our FAQ section has answered some of the questions you may have about bodywork repair. However, if you would like more information, we have the produced the following guide to help you understand the subject in greater detail.
Body work repair covers a wide range of job types which means the cost will vary greatly as well as the length of time it will take to carry out.
Panel beating is a job carried out by specialist bodywork technicians who are able to utilise specific tools and techniques to reshape the metal on the body of a car.
If you are involved in an accident, it will often be the body that takes the brunt of the damage as panels on a car are designed to absorb impact and reduce the force of a crash by cushioning the blow.
Even though a car may have suffered a huge impact, it doesn’t always mean that the panels need to be replaced.
Panel bashing involves using a huge variety of tools to manipulate the metal and get it back to it's original shape.
Depending on the extent of the damage, the amount of time and money spent will vary, however the cost is likely to be less than replacing an entire panel.
Getting a respray is a quick and easy job which most specialist body shops will be able to carry out.
Depending on the facilities at the body shop you choose, the time the job will take will vary.
Some specialists will have state of the art spraying booths and work with classic and high end cars, these facilities will be able to deliver the highest quality of respray work as the paint and delivery system will be the best available.
However, the job is likely to be more expensive than a conventional body shop.
The time taken and cost of the service will depend on the type of paint and the size of the area requiring respray.
Wrapping a car can help protect the paintwork from weather, chipping and rusting as well as UV rays which can fade the paint on your car.
Furthermore, if you happen to scratch or scuff your car, the wrapping will take the brunt of the damage and so protect the underlying paint.
You can have your car wrapped to display specific graphics if you are interested in changing the aesthetic of your car.
If you want a stripe on your car or other shapes, you can make the request from a specialist who will provide you with a quote.
Before a vinyl wrap is applied; all of the lights, door handles, trims and badges will be removed from the body of the car.
Special car wrapping surface cleaner will then be applied to your car before the wrap is applied.
The car wrap will can then be applied to the properly.
Once more, the time taken to complete the work depending on the size and shape of the piece.
Welding is an important part of bodywork car repair as it is essential for fixing different pieces of metal together.
Welding is a highly skilled job and should not be attempted unless you are a trained professional.
There are a huge amount of uses for welding on a vehicle as new parts can be created and existing ones can be repaired.
Many different parts of a car can be repaired with the help of a welding expert so do not think your car is written off if something falls out of the engine!
If you have been in an accident, we hope you're ok!
When it comes to having your car fixed after an accident it can be a toss up as to how much it will cost and how long the car will take to be repaired as the extent of the damage will be completely different from one to the next.
It's can be impossible to understand the extent of the damage to your vehicle after an accident so it's vital that you get more than one quote, as the cost could vary by hundreds of pounds from one garage to the next.
Rust removal can be a job completed without the need of a mechanic, however it depends on the extent of the damage and the area which is affected.
Rust forms when an anode, cathode and electrolyte combine.
The metal in your car acts as the cathode and anode which reacts with water (the electrolyte).
Even if your car is under cover, rust will form as a result of these elements coming together if the climate is humid enough.
You can buy specific products online which can help remove rust which are effective at repairing damage, however its effectiveness will vary on the extent of the damage.
The cost of a rust repair will once more depend on the extent of the damage.
Getting a scratch or scruff is common for cars in the UK however they can be perfectly removed with the right technical knowledge, tools and materials.
It’s important to remember that even if you have suffered from extensive scratching or scuffs, a trained professional has the ability to remove them with precision.
Removing a scratch is far cheaper than having an entire body piece replaced like a bumper so always check with a body shop to see if they can remove a scratch before replacing anything.
On average it doesn’t take too long to have your body work repaired when it comes to scratches and scruffs.
It’s important that you get a car scratch removed as soon as possible as it may get worse over time and the value of your vehicle will reduce!
Having a scratch removed by an expert is the best option unless you are a trained professional, as there are a variety of materials and techniques involved in the process.
The cost and time taken to complete the work will depend entirely on the extent of the damage to the body work so make sure to get as many quotes as possible to avoid paying over the odds.
The mechanic will apply the paint to the car scratch, or car scuff, as part of the bodywork repair.
The Paintwork repair required for removing car scratches and car scuffs shouldn’t vary in time or cost greatly, from garage to garage.
The bodywork required on a car restoration will be significant as whole panels are likely to require replacement and the ones which stay as part of the original vehicle, will need to be welded, have rust and scratches removed.
A full restoration make take years and they often do, as mechanics and hobbyists use their spare time and money to build their own cars.
A huge amount of car body work will be required on restorations as all of the components will be required to be removed and fixed back into place during different stages of the work.
Dent repair is one of the biggest parts of body work repair and is essentially the same as panel beating or panel bashing which is covered at the top of this guide.
SMART repair (Small, Medium Area Repair Technology) is a type of service offered by mechanics which is includes the use of specialised tools, paints and materials to provide your car with a good as new finish on an area which may be damaged.
Before the technology existed, if a panel was damaged, the entire piece would have to be replaced meaning more money and time would have to be spent on car maintenance.
The advances in technology mean that the speed and effectiveness of body work repair is significantly improved.
According to YouGov research, 65% of cars in the UK are carrying damage which could easily be repaired using SMART repair.
The specific jobs included in this type of body work are;
