About Us


Le French Motor opened for business in 1986 at Woolloongabba by the present owners Robert and Vicki Costantini.  Robert is French and trained and qualified as a “mécanicien” (motor mechanic) in France before immigrating to Australia in 1981. Robert has a Certificate of Recognition from The Department of Employment, Training and Industrial Relations as an Engineering Tradesperson (Mechanical) [Motor Mechanics].  Robert is fully registered by Queensland Transport to do Safety Inspections and issue Safety Certificates.

In the early days, Robert worked for one of Brisbane’s Peugeot dealers as a motor mechanic. After several years he decided to start his own business Le French Motor and has been in operation ever since. Le French Motor has trained and qualified several Australian apprentices and has also helped school based work experience students.

We have two fully qualified specialist French vehicle mechanics – Robert and Claude.  As part of our standard procedure, customers vehicle servicing and vehicle repair histories are stored on computer and any issues found during the normal checks discussed with clients and notes made within the database for future reference. Any serious safety problems found are reported to the owner and repaired as a matter of urgency. Le French Motor’s professionalism ensures that the work is of the highest standard and interaction with customers is considerate and respectful.
