Meet our Team of Specialists
This is Pete, Alan, Michael and Gareth.
Pete Plumridge: I started in the motor trade at 18, working on HGV's, vans, Land Rovers and cars. At Penn Garage, which was an Alfa
Romeo agency, I became an M.O.T. Tester. I then worked on Rolls Royce’s for Lex Mead working my way up to Grade One
Technician and attending numerous courses related to Rolls Royce.
I took a break from the motor trade, but then returned in 2003 when I worked for Prestwood Motors briefly before
starting work with a motley crew at the silly farm.
I'm still waiting to be rescued!
Alan Goodman: I left school in 1969 and started doing mechanics on commercial vehicles. At Marshalls & Sons Ltd, working on a mixture of
commercial vehicles and cars, I completed a four year apprenticeship and passed City and Guilds exams.
In 1976 I went to
work for B&M Motors and attended many manufacturers courses.
In 1991 I started as sole mechanic in a new garage, called
Wycombe Marsh Renault, now Platts.
In 2000 I left Platts to join Graham Goodyear's and accepted the new challenge of
working on Land Rovers and Range Rovers.
Michael Trotter: I left school at the age of sixteen and went straight to college to become a qualified mechanic. Whilst there I found a part
time job in Chesham servicing and valeting cars, which helped with course work. I then moved on to Graham Goodyear's where
I have worked for the last three years. I particularly enjoy working on 4x4 vehicles.
Gareth Griffiths: I left school at the age of 16 and had various part time jobs. Whilst studying at West Herts.
College I was lucky enough to be given the chance to start an apprenticeship at Graham Goodyear's. At college I gained
NVQ 1, 2 and 3 certificates, along with a B -Tec National Certificate and completed Modern Apprenticeship. In November
2000 I passed my M.O.T. Testers Course, and have been testing ever since. During the years I have worked for Graham I
have gained valuable knowledge of Land Rover mechanics and electrical systems, using the latest in modern diagnostic equipment.
