About Us

John White opened Leybourne MOT Centre at London Road Leybourne in 1999 having served his apprenticeship with Haynes of Maidstone and honed his skills working as a mobile mechanic.  To grow the business he moved to Aylesford in 2005 and converted the business to a Limited Company in 2008.  After over 30 years in the motor trade John sold the business to Matt Coles in May 2023.  

Leybourne MOT Centre is managed on a day-to-day basis by James Fraser the Workshop Manager who leads a team of 5.  Matt continues to base himself at Aylesford MOT Centre but has oversight of Leybourne MOT.  His vision is for both businesses to work closely together to ensure the needs of customers are met in Aylesford and the surrounding areas.  

Having worked alongside John for many years, James aims to offer the same high level of customer service and to maintain the relationships with both individual and business customers that have been built over the years.

Matt's plans for growth began in February 2024 with the installation of up-graded equipment at Leybourne MOT Centre so that it can now offer Class 4 and 7 MOTs.
