Our Runcorn site is located on the M56, close to the M6 and M62, near Manchester, Liverpool and Chester. Our Southam site is easy to reach across the Midlands, with a central location near the M1, M6 and M40.

MOT courses include MOT Tester Training, MOT Centre Management, Light Vehicle Inspection Level 3, and annual training, while technical courses include Diagnostic Procedures, Oscilloscope Training and Hybrid/Electric Vehicle Repair Level 3.
