We also offer services as a vehicle welding garage and deal with any corrosion issues you might be experiencing. Customers often ask us questions about car repairs, light commercial vehicle MOTs and our supporting garage services. Here, we answer some of the more common questions we receive from Wokingham motorists but if you have a query that’s not included on this page, please don’t hesitate to contact James Autos on 01189770831.


Are you an MOT garage?

Yes. Call us to arrange an appointment and we will undertake MOT testing on your vehicle. MOT testing can be carried out while you wait in our comfortable viewing area. Each inspection takes about 45 minutes to complete and once we’ve passed your vehicle at our MOT garage, you are free to drive back to Wokingham or onto your next destination.


What happens if I don’t pass MOT testing?

The inspector will list the reasons why car or light commercial vehicle MOTs have resulted in failure. If you would like us to, our MOT garage can undertake any appropriate car repairs to enable your vehicle to pass on a retest. James Autos provides customers from Wokingham and Berkshire with free retesting at our car garage within 10 days of original MOT testing.


Do you undertake light commercial vehicle MOTs?

Yes. Light commercial vehicle MOTs are conducted in the same way as they are on cars. MOT testing on light commercial vehicles consists of checks on brakes, lights, emissions and safety aspects including the seat belts, seats and steering. For a full breakdown one very thing car and light commercial vehicle MOTs entail, callus now on 01189 770831.

We also undertake light commercial vehicle repairs at competitive prices.


How often do you recommend car servicing?

Full car servicing should take place every 12,000 miles or every 12 months, whichever comes first. If you are a high mileage road user from Wokingham, we suggest an interim service where we change the oil and filters, check the fluid levels and carry out a shorter multipoint check on your vehicle. An interim service should be undertaken every 6,000 miles.


Should I make an appointment for car servicing?

A full service will include a complete check of your vehicle. Car servicing is usually made by appointment only but if you’ve made the journey over from Wokingham looking for a service, feel free to pop into our car garage and check for availability as cancellations sometime occur. We do, however, recommend an appointment under most circumstances.

We also operate as a vehicle welding garage so if you have any corrosion problems, we can fix them for you and increase the chances of passing MOT testing.


Are your car repairs guaranteed?

Yes. All car repairs for motorists in Wokingham and across the Berkshire area are guaranteed and the OEM parts we use are covered by the manufacturer’s 12-month warranty. Our car garage caters for vehicles of all makes and models, and our experienced technicians will diagnose and complete car repairs to your total satisfaction.
