About us

Who are we and what do we do?

Built by testers, for testers

Driving development from his own experience as a tester, owner and manager of two vehicle testing stations, Barry’s vision of a computerised system to help him manage and control needed to be clear, simple and easy to use yet still provide all the functionality he needed.

Barry Babister

Launched the Company in February 2014
My first MOT bay opened over 20 years ago and I too have seen plenty of changes. Today I operate 7 MOT bays and have a great team of testers in our CCM garages business.
I launched MOT Juice to help our own MOT centres, but guess what? it works for any MOT business large or small. Our own experiences help us to continually mould the MOT Juice solution. Every week, we learn from our clients, we talk to the DVSA and we meet VE’s to refine our product. I believe that no other company has a genuine cause and a desire to help testers and garage owners in the way that MOT Juice does.
If you want to talk to me then contact us as I am always keen to chat with people in our industry and learn what makes them tick and see if we can give a solution to make everyone’s life a little simpler.

Since studying IT and design in high school I have always had a passion for designing and building websites and systems. Working for MOT Juice has allowed me to design a lot of the user interface our users see and interact with on a day-to-day basis.
My experience includes over 10 years with Photoshop designing websites and system User Interfaces, 12 years of HTML, PHP and CSS coding, 3 years of learning jQuery and 7 years working within the motor industry. In 2021, I started learning Python, Apache, C# and Ruby to add to my coding skillset.

Since 2014, I have helped develop MOT Juice from a small software solution. In the beginning only used by Barry in his own business, MOT Juice now has over 7,000 users. A complete Quality Management System, MOT Juice is now used throughout the MOT industry in the UK.

Tim Kent

Senior Sales Executive
Joined the team in May 2019
Having started my career in Financial services back in the 80’s, I’ve learned a lot about working in a regulated environment. The requirement for working in a structured and evidential manner was developed years ago. As a result, all information is properly stored and can be made available for inspection to the regulator.
I have extensive experience in sales and set up my own businesses in the past. My great skill is the ability to look at things from a corporate customer viewpoint.
I can see how the DVSA are starting to regulate the MOT and motor industry. Transferring responsibility for the operational running of the business, within the ever-tightening regulations, to the garage owner. This is then passed down to the technicians and MOT testers. These are now regarded as professional positions, with responsibility for ensuring the vehicles they test are safe for the UK’s roads.
This industry is very similar to financial services and will continue to grow in regulation, in a similar fashion.

I joined the MOT Juice team in October 2018. Since then I have really enjoyed learning about the automotive industry and getting to know our lovely clients.
I am soon to commence my MSc in Organisational Psychology at the University of London. This will strengthen my knowledge of training and development, and how this can be effectively implemented within organisations.
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my four year old daughter, travelling and going to the gym.

I joined the MOT Juice team in November 2020 as Technical Product Manager with a view to adding strength and experience to the training and development aspects of the business.
I bring over 20 years’ experience in training and product management and hope to be able to add many beneficial services to MOT Juice’s already bustling remit including industry specific qualification delivery and various forms of Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
When I am not in the work environment, I enjoy spending time with my friends, family and newly born baby girl. I love music and am a massive film buff… specifically anything from the Marvel Universe.
My favourite quote to sum up my philosophy on life would be from Mahatma Gandhi – "Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever".
