Member Events - June 2019

31 May 2019

We’re ready for the summer sun this season, and ready for more of the IGA’s Member Events! As part of our Trade Body services we’re travelling across the country giving independent garages a chance to learn about and discuss the latest updates to help their businesses thrive – with the satisfaction of tea, coffee and a buffet lunch thrown in too!

This month, we’ll also be presenting at Automechanika Birmingham, so be sure to read on to discover what’s happening to benefit independent garages at the UK’s largest automotive aftermarket exhibition.

These events feature our latest presentation, crammed with essential up-to-date information and advice that you need to be aware of to run your garage business effectively, avoid the latest scams, and keep on top of new legislation.

Attendees can also discover how your IGA membership lets you benefit from our experience to minimise the risks to your garage business, and ensure you’re thriving in an ever-changing, increasingly complex industry. The DVSA are continuing to join us in 2019 to discuss the latest MOT training news and updates to the MOT Testing Service in a face-to-face environment, for your ease.

Regional MOT Annual Training Events

Regional MOT Annual Training Events are also available for testers who prefer face-to-face training in their local area.

The full training syllabus, as required by DVSA, will be covered on the day, and you’ll get an annual training workbook with a code for the assessment to complete in your own time.
