Would you use a DIY car repair facility?

Just out of curiosity... here in Naples, Italy I have access to a facility where you can pay by the hour and be helped/advised by a professional mechanic for your repairs, even for belts & waterpump changes. You get access to the whole nine yards: tools and everything.

I'm a beginner but just by changing my brakes and resurfacing my rotors, I've saved a good 100 euros, more or less, and I also saved by shopping for parts. Then on the other hand I spent 3 hours of my week-end time, but I've learned plenty!

Do you guys have something similar in the UK? My mom told me that in France a chain doing just that has just come up and it seems to be working well.
