As consultants dedicated to enhancing professionalism and compliance in the automotive sector, we are proud to offer SAF Testing services; a crucial step for dealerships with customer-facing staff involved in the sale of motor finance.

What is SAF Testing?

SAF Testing, or Specialist Automotive Finance (SAF) Test, is a comprehensive accreditation program designed to ensure that professionals in the motor trade possess the necessary knowledge and skills to responsibly handle motor finance transactions. Developed by the Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) in collaboration with industry experts, SAF Testing sets the standard for excellence in automotive finance knowledge.

Why is SAF Testing Important for Dealers?

In the dynamic world of motor finance, where regulations are constantly evolving, it is essential for dealerships to stay ahead of the curve. SAF Testing provides a structured framework for individuals to deepen their understanding of finance-related aspects within the automotive industry. Here’s why all dealers with customer-facing staff engaged in motor finance should prioritise SAF Testing:

  1. Legal Compliance: SAF Testing ensures that your staff is well-versed in current financial regulations, reducing the risk of legal complications and ensuring that your dealership operates within the bounds of the law.
  2. Enhanced Customer Trust: By having SAF Test-accredited professionals on your team, you signal to customers that your dealership is committed to transparency, ethical practices, and providing a secure financial experience.
  3. Reduced Financial Risks: Knowledgeable staff can navigate complex financial transactions more effectively, minimizing the risk of errors and financial disputes that may arise from a lack of understanding.
