Learn A Little About Us...

Cross Lane Garage is a family run, independent garage in Wakefield. Set up by the late Ian Dudley in 1976, this is now owned and run by his nephew Dale Stenson.

Ian was passionately involved in the local community and motorcycle racing. He even sponsored local up and coming motorcycle racing riders. Now with Dale at the reins Cross Lane Garage continues to be a locally renowned MOT garage, with the people of Wakefield’s at its heart.

Our excellent reputation for low prices and reliable garage services is recognised by not just the people of Wakefield but also many of the main car dealerships. We are proud to be the preferred MOT Testing Station for many well known car dealerships across Wakefield and the surrounding areas. This speaks volumes as to how good we are as even the industry experts use us and recognise it!

Popped in with my motorhome before our big trip. Absolutely blown away, they checked it over for free there and then and really put my mind at rest. Topped up my tyre pressure and were super quick and helpful. I've booked it to go back for its MOT once we've done the big trip (plus it will then need some new tyres!). Thanks Dale and the team 🙂

Absolutely Brilliant lads. On route to work at South Elmsall from Huddersfield and my car was making a funny noise. Googled this place and drove there. Lads had a look at my car and told me if was safe to carry on my journey. They put me at ease as was very wary about carrying on. Shame I live in Huddersfield as I would definitely use this garage.

Amazing! Brought my Qashqai here for its first service (as they do manufacturer service so was valid with my new car warranty). Far cheaper than Nissan and fab service. I just popped across to McD’s with my laptop and the car was ready within 2 hours. Also the clean was amazing - don’t think my wheels have sparkled like that since I bought it! Faultless service and genuinely lovely blokes. Totally recommend Cross Lane!
