Welcome to Big John's Auto Centre

Welcome to Big Johns Auto Centre. We are Leicestershire's premier gear box and clutch centre. We have been established since 1991 previously under the Mr Clutch franchise, we went independent in 2002 branding the garage as Big Johns Auto Centre. We are based in the City Centre of Leicester, specialising in private, fleet and light commercial vehicles. We provide servicing and mots, repairs for all makes and models of cars. We also repair manual gearboxes, service brakes, replace clutches and suspension. We offer a 'while you wait service' and we can offer you a courtesy car (if available). Towing in can be arranged if your car will not make it to the garage.

MOT's & Servicing

When your car is due for an mot it is vital you book your car in for a service so you are not wasting time and money if something causes the car the fail. To ensure your car always runs smoothly without any problems we advise that you book your car in for a service at least once a year, regardless of mileage. We provide servicing for cars and light commercial vehicles as well as fleet servicing.


We have been replacing clutches in Leicestershire for many years now. We will repair or replace your clutch with the genuine parts unless we strongly believe a better part can be used. Our reputation throughout Leicestershire for clutch repair and replacement is second to none, this can be seen by our feedback with the good garage scheme this is due to the quality of our service and mechanics.


As well as clutches we specialise in gearboxes. If your car has a problem with the gearbox such as it does not go into reverse or a certain gear or it just does not work full stop then book it in with us so we can take a look. Even if you think it needs replacing we may be able to fix it.


We have some of the greatest mechanics in Leicestershire working for Big Johns Auto Centre, we have a vast stock of brakes and if you require a particular set of brake callipers or brake pads that we do not have in stock then we can have it ordered in with in a couple of days. If you are worried about your brakes then you can book the car in for a brake maintenance check. Ensuring your brakes are in good working order is very important. If they are faulty your car will not stop as quickly and it could be the differences between crashing into another car or not.

We are open:

  • Monday - Friday: 08:30 – 17:30
  • Saturday: 08:30 – 13:00
