Point-Counterpoint: Is Registering Body Shops with the Department of Transportation a Good Idea?

Yes – The collision repair industry has been seeking certification, registration, licensing, standards, etc., in every state plus in the U.S. Congress since before I was born. And if you study this history, you’ll see that this effort has not been successful in accomplishing the industry’s intended goals, whether the laws were passed or not. So I ask you to consider supporting a law that would require that every collision repair facility that returns damaged vehicles back to public roadways have a “Department of Transportation” (DOT) number.
