Motor Trade

It is important for consumers to know their rights when buying a car and also to research the history and condition of a vehicle before purchase.

Motor Trade Partnership

West Yorkshire Trading Standards recognises that some consumers are apprehensive when it comes to buying a car or simply choosing where to have their vehicle serviced or repaired.

The Motor Trade Partnership was set up to work with West Yorkshire garages and strives to improve standards within the motor industry, giving consumers the confidence that they are dealing with a reputable trader who has made a commitment to fair and honest practices by becoming a member of the Partnership. The scheme is administered by West Yorkshire Trading Standards Service and works with businesses in the following sectors:

  • New vehicle sales (cars, motorbikes, light haulage)
  • Used vehicle sales
  • Repairs and servicing
  • Sale and fitting of parts and accessories
