Barry Babister

Owner
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.
