Doonhamer Robin Hyslop has been a motor mechanic since 1975. It’s in his capable hands you’ll be placing your trust and your car for an MOT, service, or repair at Dumfries MOT, units 14 & 15, Spitfire Road, Heathhall Business Centre.

Dumfries MOT has been at the Centre for seven years but relocated to this brand-spanking new and fully equipped premises in January 2022.

There aren’t many mechanics in Dumfries and Galloway with as much expertise and experience under their belts as Robin, whose CV reads like a who’s who of the local motor trade.

He explained: “I began as an apprentice at Nithsdale Garage in Dumfries and went on to work at Corrie’s Austin Rover, SMT Vauxhall, and The Dumfries Motor Company 1981 on English Street. I also worked for a time at James Haugh, Castle Douglas.

“It was after I was a service manager for Saab in the early 90s that I started working for myself.”

How has Robin found running the operation out of Heathhall Business Centre?

“Firstly, I want to thank Heathhall Business Centre for fitting out this purpose-built MOT station and supporting me while I obtained all the necessary VOSA permissions, which took a wee bit longer than anticipated.

“As well as being a great partner, what an excellent location to open your new business.”

What can you expect when you choose Dumfries MOT?

“The great thing is we’re an MOT station and a repair garage, so a customer doesn’t have the hassle of going elsewhere if work needs doing on their car.

“I know that it can be an anxious time booking your car into a garage, so I always take the time to talk over any issues with the customer to keep them fully in the picture.

“I deliver the very best service too, of course, to ensure that their vehicle is fully safety compliant and roadworthy.

“MOT rules and regulations are forever changing and anybody that has any questions can give me a call any time and I’ll gladly help.”
