What is the Good Garage Scheme?
CEDR provides Arbitration for members of the Good Garage Scheme and their customers. The Good Garage Scheme provides effective self-regulation of independent workshops and MOT centres giving motorists access to a trustworthy garage in their area to service, repair or carry out an MOT.
This Scheme uses Arbitration. Arbitration is a formal and legally binding process where the dispute is resolved by the decision of a nominated third party called an arbitrator. Once the arbitrator issues their award it is legally binding and can only be appealed in the courts in very rare occasions.
This process is conducted entirely in writing.
If you want to complain about CEDR please read our Complaints Procedure document. Once you have read the Complaints Procedure and you want to submit your complaint, please use our Complaint Form below.
You will be directed to an external site, where you can search to see if your company is covered under this Scheme.
