  • AA

    The Automobile Association was created by people like you – keen drivers who just wanted fair treatment.

    Not much has changed on that front since June 1905, when four driving enthusiasts banded together in London to form the AA. From day one our goal has been exactly the same: to protect you, the motorist, and put your interests first.

    With over 15 million members from the original 90, it's fair to say we've grown a bit; in fact, we're now the UK's largest motoring organisation, still going strong over a century later. From setting up our first motorbike patrols to piloting 'connected cars', we've got a unique history of embracing new technology and innovations to better serve you.

  • Institute of the Motor Industry

    IMI is the professional association for individuals working in the retail motor industry and the authoritative voice of the sector. IMI is transforming the automotive industry by setting, upholding and promoting professional standards – driving skills acquisition, establishing clearer career paths, and boosting public confidence.

    Established in 1920, the IMI filled a specific need for individuals desiring recognition for their accomplishments, and the recognition they received led to a steady growth in membership. Those needs still exist today therefore membership and professional recognition remains at the core of our existence.

  • The Motor Ombudsman

    The Motor Ombudsman is the automotive dispute resolution body. Fully-impartial, it is the first ombudsman to be focused solely on the automotive sector, and self-regulates the UK’s motor industry through its comprehensive Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI)-approved Codes of Practice.

    Thousands of businesses, including vehicle manufacturers, warranty product providers, franchised dealers and independent garages, are accredited to one or more of the Codes, which drive even higher standards of work and service, and give consumers added protection, peace of mind and trust during the vehicle purchase and ownership experience.
