Why Qualifications Matter

Shockingly a large percentage of garages & MOT stations are operating without qualified staff or manufacturer technical data for the cars.

Surely any garage can do an oil change or a code scan? Yes absolutely, of course any garage can physically drop the oil and put new in, but will they use the right oil? Will they have the technical data to check the oil rating specifications for your vehicle and the quantity required? Will they use a good quality, long lasting oil filter or a cheap imitation? Will they treat a code scan as a diagnostic?

You don’t need qualifications to do an oil change, but qualifications are a good indication of how seriously the individual takes their career choice and whether they are dedicated or simply doing the only job they could get when they left school unskilled. Passionate. Dedicated. Focused. Each & every member of our team is a car fanatic.

Would you pick an MOT Station?

An MOT tester is qualified and will have had to sit an exam to get his MOT license but does that mean that they have the skills & training to carry out diagnostics & repairs?

Not necessarily, yet many people assume that an MOT station is the right place to go for maintenance and repairs. Even a fully qualified technician is limited in ability if they don’t have access to technical data and tooling for your brand of car. It seems obvious to us that it is a tall order to expect anyone to be tasked with an understanding and experience on every brand of vehicle available! Think about it, just because all cars have an engine, those engines can be drastically different, there are some major differences in layout and control systems.

The point is that with the complexity of modern day vehicles and the variety of options available in type of car, a technician has to limit what to work on if they are to become really knowledgeable. All our technicians are hand-picked and head hunted for their qualifications and experience. We maintain ongoing training to keep up to date with our knowledge base. Focusing purely on the two BMW brands allows us to be dedicated experts.
