Plum and David have now retired after serving the Maidstone public for many years. Acorn Autos recommend you contact GMS (Kent) Ltd on 01622 232000 for quality repairs and servicing.
Thank you to all our customers.

Bring your car to us and we will carry out all work necessary to ensure your vehicle passes the MOT Test first time

We will take your car for its test and return it to our garage.

We test both catalytic and non catalytic cars.

MOT testing is available 5 days a week, Monday to Friday.

A reminder will be sent to you next year before your next test is due. You may renew your test certificate up to one month before your old certificate expires, without losing any days.
