The Coalition Government proposed changing MOT tests from an annual to a biennial basis, which would have had the effect of halving revenues in the auto-centres industry and threatening 40,000 jobs.
Maitland Political/AMO created the “Pro-MOTe” campaign bringing together 31 organisations including Halfords, Kwikfit, the AA, RAC, Brake, British cycling & UNITE to challenge the proposals.
The Government decided to reverse its decision and threw out the proposed changes.
Bill Duffy, CEO, Halfords Autocentres said: “Maitland created a fantastic campaign that was impactful, engaging and, of course, ultimately successful. We have been delighted with their work to help ensure the Government sensibly dropped its plans on MOTs.”
