Reforms to motor industry laws


From 1 December 2014 the Motor Dealers and Repairers Act 2013 will replace the Motor Dealers Act 1974 and the Motor Vehicle Repairs Act 1980. The new Act contains simplified, consistent legislation providing greater consumer protection and a fair go for motor vehicle dealers and repairers. For more information, go to the Major changes to motor industry laws page.
