Dear Colleague,

On Monday, we will publish the latest NFDA Dealer Attitude Survey Winter 2018/2019 – interesting results!

Next week we will be in Northampton and York for our Midland and Northeastern regional meetings. The NFDA regionals provide you with an ideal opportunity to discuss issues concerning your business surrounding key industry areas: new and used car market, aftersales, finance and insurance, HR and employment, with an update on Drive My Career, and consumer legislation. Members’ input helps NFDA set the direction of our activity for the year ahead - your attendance is extremely valuable. Please email to attend.

The Government has launched an online tool to help businesses prepare for leaving the European Union. By answering a few questions, the tool helps you find out what your business may need to do to prepare for the UK leaving the EU, what’s changing in our industry plus any information on specific rules and regulations. Please find more details below.

Tickets are still available for the NFDA Spring Ball taking place on Saturday 11 May at The Grove Resort in Hertfordshire. Back by popular demand is your host and compere for the evening TV presenter Mark Durden-Smith. Our after-dinner speaker is former England Cricket Captain and TV commentator and pundit David Gower OBE. During the evening, we will also present our awards for Industry Initiative, Manufacturer and Special Recognition. For more information and to book your tickets, email
