Motor Codes reveals top 10 garages in the UK

British motorists have chosen the top 10 best garages in the UK as part of Motor Codes’ search for the best local garage in Britain as part of its Golden Garages competition.

Over 8,000 motorists have voted for their favourite local garage, with the final 10 named:

  • A1 Motorcare, Cardiff, Wales
  • ABP Motorsport, Crewe, North West
  • Anglo Continental Cars, Milton Keynes, Midlands
  • Arnold Clark Renault, Paisley, Scotland
  • Clive Woolford Motors, Tewkesbury, South West
  • Fred Henderson, Durham, North East
  • Kinghams, Croydon, South East & London
  • Kings of Witcham, Ely, East
  • Prestige Services, Wakefield, Yorkshire
  • SERE Motors, Lisburn, Northern Ireland

Motor Codes set-up the Golden Garage competition to highlight the best service and repair businesses in the country.


The ten winners will receive a host of prizes and now the Motor Codes industry expert judging panel will begin the difficult task of choosing the best garage.

To ensure the judging process is fair and thorough, Motor Codes will work with the RAC to conduct on site visits and independently assess each of the top ten garages before deciding on a national winner, to be announced on April 6.
The judging panel includes TV presenter and racing car driver Vicki Butler-Henderson who will visit the winning garage.

Chris Mason, Motor Codes director, said: “Following on from our first round of voting, we’ve seen a further 4,000 votes cast by British motorists in the search for the nation’s best local garage.

“Such a high turnout of votes is a clear reflection of how important the public consider the issues raised by this campaign to be and it’s great that British motorists are embracing the chance to have their say. Motor Codes is determined to promote the best the service and repair sector has to offer, every motorist can benefit from fair, honest, quality service by visiting”

Motor Codes operates a self regulatory code of practice for garages across the country. Supported by consumer groups and government, including the Department for Transport, Motor Codes is trying to help raise standards across the industry.

British motorists and garages can follow the final stages of the competition on the Golden Garages website ( as well as on Twitter at
