"I had a great experience with Topgear, they picked up and dropped off my car and kept me informed about what needed to be done and when my car would be delivered back."
"Happy with the service"
"Booked in for a full service and MOT, I knew there were a few issues that needed addressing on top of this. The garage noticed all of these, called me and kept me updated on everything. They didn’t try to push any other services on me but elected to have the few extra bits of repair done. The car drives smoother and feels more solid and they completed the work quickly. Staff were very professional and polite. No negatives at all."
Very helpful and friendly
"I was very happy with the service they even called my car Norman which is what I had named it and put me right at ease with it being the first time I've had a Lot."
Honest efficient quality
"Very quick and well communicated"
Will be returning
"This is my first time having to deal with a garage as it’s my first car. I was a little worried on what to do or say but when I got there, all worry’s went away. They made me feel very comfortable, spoke to me with respect (unlike a lot of stories about garages I’ve heard) and most importantly they got the job done properly. My car came back in a much better condition than before. I will definitely be returning for any issues with my car in the future"
Amazing service *****
"Kept me informed throughout,offered me sound advice."
"Quickly completed the Service, MOT and work. The price was fair and they they kept me in the loop throughout, would recommend and go there again!"
"All nice and smooth, had a few work done. Happy with it"
"I booked online, within in an hour i received a phone call from David. He was very helpful as this was first time taking the car to the garage. I picked this garage based on the reviews, I was not disappointed. My only concern was that the garage is located on a fairly busy street and to leave your car there, you have to either park on said street or round the corner."

What do you think about when choosing a garage for your service?
It’s often the case that we stick with what we know when it comes to car servicing. Proximity to home, familiarity with the staff and simple force of habit all play a major part when we choose a garage. But what if you could instantly compare Derby garages’ prices, speed and quality of service, and customer feedback - and book online at the same time? BookMyGarage does all this for you in a matter of moments, free of charge, leaving you to get on with the rest of your day.
When should you get your car serviced?
Not everyone is organised enough to know when an MOT is due, but what about a service? The make, age, mileage and average usage of your car all play a part in this question, but in general your car should undergo a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every two years (or 24,000 miles). Some helpful garages apply a sticker to the driver’s door noting the date when the next service is due, but the best thing is to check the owner’s manual which should detail the service history of the vehicle. When you buy a new car or sell your existing one, it’s important to have that service history filled out so that a potential buyer or dealer can see at a glance that the car’s been properly looked after. High mileage drivers who regularly travel outside Derby should consider an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
What are common repairs your car may need?
One of the most common and critical car problems is a slipping clutch. How long a clutch lasts varies depending on the age and model of your car, the conditions you drive in, and the way you drive so the most important thing is to know how to spot a clutch problem when you’re out driving in and around Derby. You might find that the revs (RPMs) suddenly shoot up but the road speed doesn’t increase. Acceleration may not be as effective as it once was. This will be more obvious in a manual car than in an automatic as the clutch usually slips during a gear change. Expect to pay in the region of £400 to have your clutch replaced but make sure you get the best service and price for you by checking Derby garages with BookMyGarage.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Derby or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
