The MTA is an association of New Zealands motor industry professionals. Established in 1917, we merged with the Motor Vehicle Dealers Institute in June 2003 and now have more than 4,000 members representing every facet of the industry, from repair workshops, vehicle sales and service stations to specialists in alternative fuels and outdoor power equipment.
What do we do?
We have two major roles:
1) to help our members' businesses succeed, and
2) to protect the interests of our members' customers - the motoring public
To accomplish the first, we provide information to our members about technological developments and changes to the law that affect the industry. We also provide industry training - both technical and business - to increase the skill levels of our members to help them serve the public better.
To fulfil our second role, we act as a lobby group to government and other agencies, representing motorists and our members. We're often asked to comment on issues affecting both our members and the motoring public by government agencies like the LTSA.
We also protect our members' customers by acting as a mediator in the case of disputes.
