The Weekly Roundup

Poor provision of careers advice is a road block to economic growth, says Institute of the Motor Industry. The warning follows IMI sponsored research from the Industry Apprentice Council, which showed that 45% of current industry apprentices had received poor or no advice and guidance on their career choice.

The Independent Garage Association is working with the Department for Transport to reassess the statutory MOT fee. The DfT are analysing garage running costs to validate the justification for an increase in MOT test fees to present to the next government, but to make this happen they need financial costings for MOT test stations as a starting point to the project.
