Transparency, trust & trained technicians

Car Maintenance Tips

Transparent Servicing, trustworthy garages and trained technicians are the principles by which we operate our AA Garage Guide.

What actually is a ‘Service’?

What a ‘Service’ consists of varies from garage to garage. So with help and approval of technical experts at the Institute of the Motor Industry, we decided to design and define what we believe a ‘Service’ should comprise. Our Interim and Full Services contain a thorough and transparent checklist of exactly what will be done to your car at the workshop.
Plus, because the garage will digitally ‘stamp’ what they’ve done back to your AA Automyze account, you will maintain a fully verified digital service record for the car.

Recommending Reputable Businesses:

The AA Garage Guide consists of over 1,000 garages who meet our strict criteria which includes verifying they are members of industry schemes, performing business background checks and ensuring they have a positive reputation for the quality of work they carry out.

Professionally trained and highly qualified:

We also champion garages that employ professionally registered technicians whose skills and competency have been verified by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI).  The IMI’s Professional Register exists to make sure consumers end up in skilled, competent and trustworthy hands. After all, we think if you’re going to have someone repair your brakes, you want someone who is best qualified to do so.
