A DIY garage.

You pay to use a fully equiped garage for as long as you want to do what you want, with the option of having a 'lesson' or help from a qualified mechanic if you get stuck or just wana learn!

I personally think its a good idea as i m always keen to learn how to work on cars but i never have the correct tools etc etc!!!

Just wana know what you guys think really.

as said its not that simple, a friend started up a mini mot business up and he was doing ok initially then he had to pack in has his insurance premiums went through the roof. Most things involving the public and dangerous equipment will be the same these days i should imagine.

THere was a DIY garage here for a while... They did normal stuff but you could also rent a ramp for however long you needed. Lasted a few months but then went under. Not sure of the reasons why...

30 per hour is they did everything

It would be cheaper than that... well at least the aim is to have it cheaper than that.
60 for the 1st 3 hours and 15 for every hour after that or something along those lines.
