A winning formula for over 50 years

Established in 1969, Formula One Autocentres set out with a mission to deliver a completely new fast-fit experience to its customers. This would feature clean, modern premises, high-tech equipment and highly trained technicians; far removed from the kind of service normally associated with the industry.

Over fifty years down the line, we have grown to become one of the UK’s largest independent autocentre chains. The business remains family owned and continues to uphold its original commitment to delivering the highest quality service at the most competitive prices.

That commitment has proved incredibly popular with motorists, creating many thousands of loyal customers who continue to put their trust in Formula One Autocentres.

As a result, the company has gone from strength to strength, currently boasting over 130 state-of-the-art branches across England, with over 800 highly trained staff working seven days a week to provide a full range of services including tyres, exhausts, batteries, brakes, clutches, MOT's and servicing.

We remain resolutely independent, and as a family owned business, avoid being tied down to any single manufacturer or supplier. This gives us the freedom and flexibility to offer the biggest deals on the widest possible range of top branded products, making the company a viable, attractive and cost-effective alternative to both the big national chains and smaller local independent outlets. Quite simply, Formula One Autocentres provides cost-conscious motorists with the most reliable and affordable means of maintaining their vehicles.

We defend our position at the forefront of the fast-fit industry by constantly evolving and developing innovative new products and services to meet the ever-changing demands of our customers. With an ongoing expansion programme and by regular investment in technology, we continue to provide unbeatable fast-fit service along with the very best value prices. In fact, we can confidently claim that no other company is better equipped to face the motoring challenges of the future.

What people are saying about us...

  • Fantastic service. Everyone said hello and even made time to wave at my 18 month old daughter. Great attitude and running to the time stated. You have definitely got a new customer to this branch in derby!

  • Very informative employees who explained what problems had occurred. Didn't try to overcharge me and add things on unnecessarily which is appreciated as I have had trust issues with previous garages. Will happily return! I like the honesty and sincerity in looking out and after your customers, so thank you!

  • Really friendly and helpful staff, called me with a update, explained that I needed additional work (tracking) and why, called again when car ready.
