Dear Colleague

The NFDA Summer 2018 Dealer Attitude Survey results will be published on Monday 3 September. The survey has received a high response rate so thank you to all dealers that took part. The survey allows the NFDA to lobby manufacturers on behalf of dealers to improve the relationship and balance of power between dealers and manufacturers. I will be meeting with a number of manufacturer Chief Executives to discuss the results over the coming weeks. If you would like to receive a copy of the survey results please email

The NFDA’s unique website portal ‘Drive My Career’ is gathering tremendous pace. We are pleased to announce that we now have the support of Renault Groupe who have signed their entire dealer network up to this initiative. For more information about how Drive My Career can help bring new young talent into your business visit

Finally, we have the next round of NFDA regional dealer forums taking place during September around the country. These meetings give members the opportunity to discuss common industry issues with like-minded dealers from a range of franchises. They also give the members the opportunity to hear first-hand what your trade association is doing on your behalf. Topics for discussion will include the Dealer Attitude Survey, WLTP, multi-user vehicles and the current and future state of the market. For more information on the meetings please contact

NFDA is your trade association: we represent, you benefit. If you need any assistance, please contact us on the member helpline 01788 538303.

Sue Robinson, NFDA Director
