Dear Member,

With 2016 drawing to a close, a picture is emerging for 2017 that will impact positively on the independent sector. All going to plan the first security audits will be carried out giving independents a level of access currently not available, and the introduction of the Trust My Garage £1000 Guarantee will provide an unparalleled level of reassurance for consumers. Our second training Academy will also open in the North.

Throughout this year we have provided an array of different options to support members with the new MOT annual training that must be carried out by the end of March. From mid-December, our on-site training package will no longer be available for the 2016/17 training period. Whilst we are still taking bookings, spaces are limited and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. All other options will continue to remain available, and more training events are being scheduled regionally and at the RMI Academy to accommodate.

2017 dates for all MOT training courses are now available on the Academy website. Please call us on 0845 305 4230 to book your annual training or MOT new tester training.

This being the last bulletin of 2016, I would personally like to thank every member for the support, feedback and genuine interest shown for what is now a truly strong voice for our sector. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a successful and prosperous New Year.

Best regards,


Stuart James
IGA Director
