Motor vehicle repair business licence or motor vehicle repairer's certificate: what's the difference?

Are you:
  • the owner of a motor vehicle repair business?
  • a self-employed motor vehicle repairer?
  • the operator of a mobile repair business?
  • an employer of a certified repairer who supervises repair work?

 

If you answered "yes" to any of the questions above, you need a motor vehicle repair business licence

 Do you:
  • own a repair business and do repair work?
  • supervise the repair work of others?
  • work under a supervisor who does not have a certificate for the same class of repair work as you?
  • do repair work unsupervised?

 

If you answered "yes" to any of the questions above, you need a motor vehicle repairer's certificate
