The National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) represents franchised car and commercial vehicle retailers in the UK. There are more than 4,500 franchise outlets in the UK and approximately 590,000 people working in the automotive retail sector.

We lobby on behalf of our members to ensure their voice is heard and support them with a number of issues that impact automotive retail businesses on a day to day basis. These include retailers’ relationships with manufacturers, advising on legislation and key business areas such as used cars, finance and insurance, aftersales and recruitment.

NFDA has recently launched Drive My Career, an initiative promoting careers in automotive retail to young people, and Electric Vehicle Approved (EVA), an accreditation scheme which certifies retailers’ excellence in the EV sector.

Our website is broken into a number of areas where you will find material to support your business. The website is also a resource base for information including data around vehicles sales, our Dealer Attitude Survey and Consumer Attitude Survey, guidance documents etc. If you are not already a member and would like to know more about membership please refer to our membership page for more information and contact details.

NFDA is the voice of automotive retailers.
