Welcome to Lessian Motors -

For your modern and classic car needs

Lessian Motors was founded in 1977 at its original location in Booths Yard, Nile Road, Ilkley. After many successful years and with an expanding customer base, in 1999, the business outgrew its original premises and moved to its current location on Little Lane.

A family-run business with an assurance of quality and service, today, the company is headed by Gerard Simpson, son of its late founder, Les Simpson.

Combining the professionalism of a large corporate garage with the personal service of a local business, Lessian Motors provides a complete range of services, to fulfil all your classic and modern vehicle motoring needs.

Combining the latest industry technology with technical expertise, our dedicated team of trained professional technicians deliver friendly and personal service in modern workshop facilities.

Lessian Motors prides itself on delivering 'value-for-money' vehicle repairs and maintenance in Ilkley.
