This act would establish licensing requirements for certain motor vehicle repair shops, collision repair estimators and collision repair technicians. Specifically, repair shops, estimators and technicians would be required to obtain a license to work on a vehicle.

The General Assembly has declared the purpose of H.B. 1285 is:

“To protect the safety and welfare of the people of North Carolina against unqualified motor vehicle repair shops, collision repair estimators and collision repair technicians or improper motor vehicle or collision repair, it is necessary to provide for the licensing and regulation of certain motor vehicle repair shops, collision repair estimators and collision repair technicians.”

The Automotive Service Association (ASA) supports shop licensing and technical certification regulations that include but are not limited to proper training; compliance with federal, state and local regulations; certification of technicians; minimum level of insurance; and minimum level of equipment standards for automotive shops. ASA will work with the legislature to ensure the legislation addresses equipment and training concerns.
