DK Car Audio & Security is owned by me, Dave Knight. I left school in 1995 at the age of 16 and started my career at a firm of funeral directors in Luton, Bedfordshire. From a very young age I had great interest in cars and their electrics. I would help my Father fit alarms to my familyʼs vehicles, along with accessories. This soon turned into a hobby for me. I started to learn more about car security, installing two wire alarm DIY installations from basic sparkrite alarms, vixen car security and microscan talking alarms. This was even before I left school!
After leaving school, I continued my hobby with cars. In 1996 a friend, who owned a shop in Twickenham, also fitted car security and audio. This became a new line for me and I started installing Clifford alarms for friends and family, along with buying and fitting car audio.
In 1999 I started a part time business doing this. So, early in 2000, I set up my own company, DK Car Audio & Security and became an Authorised Clifford Dealer
In December 2005 I left the funeral service to start working for James Gammell at Atlantic Sports Cars, Luton. He is a importer of American sports cars and trucks. My role was Technical Installation Manager and I ran DK Car Audio And Security part-time alongside this from Cosgrove Way, Luton. This is where I would be getting vehicles ready for SVA testing. This would include specialist vehicle wiring to an OEM finish so it could be road legal in the UK. I was also involved in car sales. During his time with Atlantic I converted over 750+ vehicles. This also made more work for me and I was serving customers all over the UK with security products and accessories.
In 2011 James decided to close Luton so he could move back to Scotland to help with his family business. I have continued running DK Car Audio and Security as a full time, mobile service, keeping in touch with customers and making new ones as I go on.
