Automotive Technician Accreditation 

Before they check your vehicle they've passed rigorous checks of their own.

Properly trained technicians are highly skilled professionals. As vehicles become increasingly complex and sophisticated, it is vital to you, the motorist, that you can be sure the person working on your car is fully competent to do so. Automotive Technician Accreditation (ATA) is a voluntary assessment programme for technicians working in the retail motor industry. It has the backing of major vehicle organisations, which have invested in the training and continuing professional development of their staff.


ATA provides

  • * Confidence that your vehicle is in capable hands.

  • * Independent quality assurance

  • * Proof of technical competence and professional responsibility

Regularly and independently tested

To become an ATA registered technician an individual must pass a comprehensive and rigorous series of tests of practical skill and knowledge. To ensure that they keep up-to-date with new technologies, technicians need to be re-assessed every 5 years to maintain their accreditation. Accredited individuals and the businesses which employ them have shown that they are committed to providing customers with the highest level of technical expertise and professional standards. ATA registered technicians have signed and are bound by a special code of conduct. they are issued with a photo identity card, so that you can be confident of their credentials.
