As well as the latest member benefits, updates on Trust My Garage and Car Repair Plan, and industry news, the DVSA will continue to join the IGA to discuss new MOT tester training and the future of the MOT system.

If you attend our Southam event you’ll also have the opportunity to be some of the first to look around the new RMI Academy of Automotive Skills training centre.

These two events will have a slightly earlier start time due to feedback from previous events, with doors opening at 9:30am and the presentation starting at 10:00am. Tea, coffee and a buffet lunch will also be provided.

Tickets are strictly limited to 100 per event, so click here to view the event details and book tickets.

Tuesday 24th May: Silverstone - The Wing, Silverstone Circuit, Towcester, Northampton, NN12 8TN

Following our biggest ever member event at CDX15 last year, the IGA is holding another event at this year’s expo.

You won’t want to miss this - join us at 1pm in Hall 5 to make sure you are aware of this important information.

You don’t need to book tickets through EventBrite for this event, simply register for the expo here and come along on the day.

About CDX16

There will also be a new dealer advice area, allowing you to put your questions directly to industry experts in a one-on-one environment.

CDX16 is taking place across 3 halls, and you’ll be able to find the IGA on stand 109 in Hall 1.
