See What Our Customers Say

Not only was I delighted with the service you provided but also the friendly manner in which I was received. All members of your staff that I met were welcoming and treated me with respect. I will not hesitate to return to you for any further requirements to my vehicle.

We have been coming to Oxford City Council for many years to have our fleet of vintage buses put through their MOT. We are very impressed with the service provided as they are completely impartial and experienced in testing many different types of vehicles. Oxford Direct Services are one of the very few places in Oxford that have the facilities to carry out class 5 MOTs on private buses.
