Car Servicing
Long Lane Garage provides servicing for any make or model of car in the Newbury & Thatcham area, but we are a little different. Rather than just give every car the same old service, regardless of make and model, we recognise that each car requires a slightly different type of service. This is simply because all vehicles aren't built the same way and whilst one type of service might be good for one car a slightly adjusted service is better for a different car.

We service all cars as per the original manufacturers guidelines and we believe this allows us to give your car the best service, specifically tailored to meet the needs of your vehicle. Generic oil and full services are also available.

You can now have your car serviced by us without invalidating your warranty. Thanks to changes in European Union legislation (block exemption) we can service your car and save you money without fear of invalidating your vehicles warranty. There are no restrictions to this providing we use original spare parts or matched quality spares and adhere to the legislation. So there is no need to keep paying through the nose for your car servicing.


In our well equipped workshop we are able to cope with nearly any kind of work except bodywork repairs. We have a wide variety of specialist tools and diagnostic equipment to suit most makes and models. Our staff are highly skilled and all have specific areas in which they specialise. We will always do our utmost to give you an accurate quote prior to commencing work and we do not carry out any additional work without your authority.

MOT Testing
Long Lane garage offer Class 4, Class 5 light and Class 7 MOT's which are carried out on site by appointment. We also offer a 'while you wait MOT' service' dependent on our workload.

MOT Repairs

Did you know... ?

The MOT certificate confirms that at the time of the test, without dismantling it, the vehicle met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. It does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the length of time the certificate is valid. The MOT certificate is also no guarantee of the general mechanical condition of your vehicle. The test doesn't cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox.
