Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI)


Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) is the professional body for individuals working in the motor industry and the authoritative voice of the sector.

IMI is transforming the automotive industry by setting, upholding and promoting professional standards – driving skills acquisition, establishing clearer career paths, and boosting public confidence.

Established in 1920, the IMI filled a specific need for individuals desiring recognition for their accomplishments, and the recognition they received led to a steady growth in membership. These needs still exist today, therefore membership and professional recognition remains at the core of our existence.

IMI believes that the development and facilitation of professional registration is critical to personal and business success.

We exist to make this happen.
