Our mission

Our mission today is the same as it was back then – to create a sustainable business advantage for members and to help the motoring public.

MTA’s mission is to provide members, consumers and industry stakeholders with consistently superior service, standards, and information.

High standards

Members must work to a set of membership standards to maintain their membership. The MTA Customer Promise, Code of Ethics and Warranty ensure that consumers receive the best possible service and have confidence in the work that is being carried out. Members must also meet acceptable environmental standards.
