Drive Rite Automotive owner Hari Dhiwali is a man with a plan. And that plan involves utilizing technology and prioritizing the customer to deliver outstanding repair experiences.

Talent and technology

Drive Rite is located in Northern California and offers service on all vehicles, from small automobiles to trucks and motor homes. Two Quick Lube bays deliver fast oil changes, along with ten drive-through bays for smog checks, brakes, transmissions, engine rebuilds, air conditioner service, diesels and more.


Drive Rite focuses on technology to speed the diagnosis and repair process—and ensure accurate repairs. Each technician has a mobile “command center” with a computer and printer. That means they can access online repair information, like ALLDATA Repair, to create the best repair plan for each vehicle. The shop uses multiple scan tools to ensure they can access all codes from all vehicles. There is even a dedicated technology room which acts like a veritable tool warehouse.
