Transport minister rules out garage licencing - Auto Retail Bulletin

Auto Retail Bulletin reports that the new transport minister, Robert Goodwill, has ruled out garage licensing for the time being. Is that any surprise? It has hardly been a popular idea with any government, as far back as I can remember, and a Conservative government might be expected to be less inclined to regulate than any other. But as the report makes clear, the landscape is changing: as autonomous cars get closer, the argument for regulating the repair industry in the same way as gas and electricity gets stronger. The issue is not going away, and we will be returning to it with increasing frequency in the future!
