Very friendly and professional. Had them do an MOT and it had a few advisories.

Took it back to have the repairs done and they even made sure I understood that they weren’t serious and didn’t necessarily need taken care of yet.

Absolutely no forced or unnecessary repairs. Will be taking all my business to them!

Excellent service, I missed my MOT slot with a dead battery, BTC tested the car the following morning despite having a full test diary.

Excellent communication, reception very friendly and efficient.

Didn’t realise they do servicing too – added bonus!

Great place to get an honest MOT done.

If your vehicle has any issues, the technician will take you into the bay and show you why your vehicle has failed or any other defects they noticed. They have a viewing window so you can see what they are doing, as well.

Price is good at £43 and they offer a £2 discount for using them again for your next MOT inspection.

Had my car in for repair assessment. Great advice given and took the time to explain exactly what was wrong and the options I had. Professional, friendly staff who provide an excellent service to their customers at a reasonable price.

Highly recommend this garage, will definitely continue to use them for future repair/MOT/service needs.

Awesome service and super fair prices. No need to sweat beads before an MoT with these guys.

I have been using these guys for years with bikes and cars and they never let me or my family down.

Kev saved us on our way up to the North Norfolk coast – our car picked up a chipping that got trapped in the brake disc and was making an awful squealing sound. Fortunately we were only two minutes from Brandon Test Centre, and Kev was able to remove the stone so we could continue our journey.

Friendly, courteous and amazingly helpful at 4.45 on a Friday afternoon. Recommended!

Truly exceptional customer service with competitive pricing, and excellent, honest service each time.

I have been a customer for the last three years and have always been very pleased with their high standard of excellence in customer service, pricing, and services provided.

I always recommend them to anyone in need of a quality car repair/MOT service centre.

Been using these professional mechanics for the last three years. They have always been honest, reliable, and timely with each any every job. I’ve never been more happier going to a shop.

They have always given me amazing prices and were extremely hospitable. The staff is very knowledgeable and kind.

Thank you again for everything you’ve done for me and my family.

Our car had an issue around 12:30 Saturday they, we called them and they told us to bring in our car, they took us in with open arms even though they closed at 1pm.

They were very helpful, fix our cars issues even if it took longer than the time they closed at.

They were proceso about their job. And the pricing for the fix was great

Will definitely go back, and would recommend

Very efficient friendly service, We have had both cars serviced here for a few years now and are over the moon with both prices and quality of workmanship. Having been in the motor trade myself i can honestly say that in my opinion Brandon Test Centre is one of, if not the best Garage around this area. Their professionalism, honesty and quality of workmanship is second to none!!

Thanks to all at BRANDON TEST CENTRE and see you next service 🙂

Went to them for a light conversion on my US spec car and MOT. Everyone I spoke with on the phone & in-person were very friendly and helpful. The prices were better than fair when compared to shops in the surrounding area.

Thank you for the excellent service, I’ll be a repeat customer and will recommend the shop to everyone.

Second year coming to test centre and I am so impressed, the mot was done quickly, they tell you and explain if anything needs doing thoroughly, friendly staff always willing to help, went in with a bad back and the receptionist was just so great and lovely. I can not praise this company more.

I am more than happy to recommend them to anyone.

Great center to have your m.o.t done I’ve used them twice so far and they are a fast, friendly and reliable service. I’ve always found the receptionists to be polite and very friendly.

The grease monkeys are alright too, they can be viewed through a window, but your not allowed to feed them !

I’ve had my motorbike mot’d here and my partners car. They were efficient, polite and very customer friendly. I had a fuse blown on my bike during the mot and they let me search for the problem and helped. All the staff in the work shop are friendly.

My brother has just booked his mot here too. I would highly recommend them.
