Dear Colleague,

Following the recently announced restrictions and the four-week lockdown in England, we have produced member guidance on online sales of vehicles, delivery and ‘click & collect’. Please find more details below, if you are an NFDA member and have not yet received the document, please email

This week, we also launched a series of ‘Hands-on’ Guides to summarise the legal guidance available to our members, the first guide focuses on ‘Distance Selling’. We will cover further operational topics over the coming weeks including GDPR as well as a number of HR issues. Find more information and download the guide via the article below.

Our Electric Vehicle Approved (EVA) scheme has now reopened. The scheme recognises expertise in the EV sector and retailers who are interested in obtaining their Government endorsed EVA accreditation should email

Positively, following our lobbying efforts, the Government has decided to not change the current VED system for light commercial vehicles and motorhomes. Please find more information in the news.

NFDA is your trade association and we are the voice of automotive retailers: if you require any assistance, please contact our member helpline on 01788 538303 or email

Sue Robinson, NFDA Director
