November IGA Member Events

These complimentary events are your chance to hear current and common matters raised by garages with the IGA, how the Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Alliance (HEVRA) can help you break through the getting started with EV barrier and an update from the DVSA.

Between them, our speakers have more than 100 years of experience in the garage trade.

During the evening IGA will cover a range of issues that we know are of concern to our members, including how IGA can help you access technical data on modern vehicles, what opportunity does the current car parc offer the independent garage and the lobbying work we’ve been doing on your behalf.

An EV repair expert from the HEVRA team will talk about how their support service can help, inform and inspire you to grow your EV business and prepare for the transition into the world of electric vehicles.

The events then finish with a speaker from DVSA who will give you the inside track on the latest MOT developments and take your questions.
