Member Events - October 2016

30 September 2016

Our last member events of the year are taking place this October and November, so if you’re local to any of the areas below, why not come along to get important industry updates and discuss your questions with the IGA team, plus get the latest MOT news directly from DVSA?

Here’s where we’ll be presenting:

Tuesday 25th October: Newcastle - Blaydon RFC, NE16 3BN

Tuesday 15th November: Hemel Hempstead - Hemel Stags Rugby league Club, HP2 5UD

Tuesday 29th November: Taunton - Wyvern Club, TA1 3PJ

As well as the latest member benefits, updates on Trust My Garage and Car Repair Plan, and industry and legislative news, the DVSA will be discussing new MOT tester training and the future of the MOT system, including the new MOT security cards.

This event will have a slightly earlier start time than past years due to feedback from previous events, with doors opening at 9:30am and presentations starting at 10:00am. Tea, coffee and a buffet lunch will also be provided.

All of our member events are free to attend, however you will need to book tickets as places are strictly limited to 100 per event. Simply click on the event you would like to attend above and fill out your details on EventBrite to secure your place.


If you can’t attend any of our member events, trade shows are a great opportunity to come and talk to the IGA team alongside experiencing all that industry events have to offer. We will have stalls at the following Mechanex events:

Tuesday 11th - Wednesday 12th October: Donington Park

Tuesday 8th - Wednesday 9th November: Sandown Park

Mechanex is the regional aftermarket trade show, targeting active auto repair professionals primarily working in the independent sector. It is a showcase for all the latest diagnostics, parts, tools and equipment. Tickets are free, and you can visit our Events page to find out more and register to attend either one.

If you are having trouble booking tickets for an event, or have any further questions about our member events or trade shows, please call our member helpline on 0845 305 4230.
