Liability Insurance Renewals Require EV Training and Equipment – Is your Workshop EV Ready?
Across the country, in every town and city, are countless numbers of small garages involved in accident repair, vehicle servicing and maintenance. All these small businesses will be aware of the ever-growing number of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles and many will be considering whether they have the tools and skills to accommodate these vehicles. In 2022 so far (data up to and including September 2022) 51% of all new vehicles registered fall under the EV or HEV umbrella, this is up from 44% in 2021.
The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) update national statistics regularly on the number of motor mechanics who are now trained and qualified to work on EVs and HEVs. Although this number is growing, it still lags far behind the growth in electric vehicles currently on UK roads.
For those small auto repair, servicing and maintenance businesses around the country who might be hesitant about investing in training and equipment, EINTAC have heard from a rapidly growing number of business owners that insurers will not renew employer liability cover without evidence of EV training.
This is a timely reminder to those businesses that the need to be ready for the EV market is urgent. Those who are sufficiently prepared for the future of the motor industry will have a competitive advantage over those who remain undecided or unconvinced.

Our knowledgeable team will be able to ensure your garage is adequately equipped and your staff are expertly trained to work on electric and hybrid vehicles.
