Hayley is the owner of the car workshop and MOT station, Avia Autos, and a professional author for the industry. As well as a qualified mechanic and MOT tester. Having published work in industry magazines since 2007, she is now the co-author for the companion text books for the Institute of the Motor Industry (a Sector Skills Council) and has previously worked as a consultant for government, lobbying, and education organisations.
Hayley holds the Patron’s Award from the IMI, and has worked with Business Wales to encourage entrepreneurship skills within the sector. Recognised by the DVSA for her contribution to education to motorists, she hopes this blog will continue to serve in the same manner as her free, pre pandemic, Motorist Clinics which taught basic maintenance and gave motorists information about car repairs.
