About Us


Savana Motors is a small family run business based in Okehampton, Devon.

Originally founded in Crawley, West Sussex in 1975, Savana Motors relocated to Okehampton in 1989 and became what was believed to be the first 'While You Wait' Testing Station in the county.

The emphasis on the business in those early years was M.O.T.'s, Vehicle Servicing and Repairs. Today Savana Motors concentrates mainly on M.O.T. testing.

In 2001 Graham Perowne, the proprietor, was joined in the workshop by his daughter Ami, who has gained several National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ) Level 2 and 3 in Vehicle Maintenance and Repairs in her own right.

Having built up an established working relationship with many local garages Savana Motors are happy to let them do the repairs and servicing whilst we M.O.T. theirs, and their customers vehicles.

Savana Motors is open 5½ days a week and operate, where possible, a 'while you wait' service. At busier times you can arrange to leave your vehicle with us and we will call you when it is ready.

With the customers consent, we will record when your next M.O.T. is due and send you a timely reminder so that your vehicle remains legal.

As father and daughter, Graham and Ami work as a team rigorously testing vehicles and pointing out any issues which are likely to arise in the near future and could become a cause for concern.

If you would like us to M.O.T. your vehicle, just give us a call, 01837 54231
