Laurentian University, B.Comm Summary · 18 years of weekly automotive reviews with over 900 published road tests · 1,000,000 kilometers of road testing and counting · Award-winning videographer, photographer, technical writer and presenter · Award-winning road safety journalist and winter driving expert.


Justin Pritchard is an experienced motoring expert whose work is read and watched by Canadians across the country on a weekly basis. Starting his career at Auto123.com back in 2005 (while finishing his final year of studies at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario), Justin quickly applied his passion for writing, presenting, and photography, working under some of the most recognized editors in the Canadian motoring scene.

Justin has written one of the largest collections of used car buyer guides on the internet, and his TV program, AutoPilot, has aired over 600 episodes across 16 seasons. Presently, AutoPilot is the only English-language motoring program on Canadian cable TV, though he’s lent his informative style and easy-to-identify voice to video features for Youtube, Driving.ca, Autotrader.ca, Motoring TV, and elsewhere. With 4 years as co-chair of the Canadian Car of the Year Awards (CCOTY) program, a passion for vehicle testing shines though in all of his work.

A passion for photography from a young age makes Justin as comfortable behind the camera as in front of it, and capturing motoring memories from the scenery of beautiful Northern Ontario is a priority in much of his work. The particularly harsh winter climate in this part of Canada makes Justin a particular expert on winter driving, winter tires, and extreme-weather safety.

When it comes to your vehicle, the tyres are your ultimate connection to the road. Ensuring they’re in top-notch condition is vital for safety and performance. Regular maintenance and MOT Test in Cinderford can help identify any issues early on. Don’t overlook the importance of proper inflation and tread depth for a smoother ride and better handling.


Justin earned a Bachelor of Commerce (Hons) from Laurentian University in 2005.
