What is HEVRA about?

HEVRA was founded in Summer 2017 by electric car driver and award-winning diagnostic technician Peter Melville, with the aim of promoting professionalism in car repair, and making it easier for drivers to find an alternative to main dealers.

"I've run The Hydragas Register for ten years, and I think there's a good case for a similar platform for electric and hybrid car repairers. But it needs to be different- members would need to meet a certain standard and have the required tools. We'd need to support members and members can support other members. An alliance, if you like."
Peter Melville, HEVRA founder

HEVRA aims to support electric car repairers in the following ways:

  • A quarterly newsletter, with tips and stories, news updates, and a detailed guide to a particular car with each newsletter
  • Marketing- launching in 2018, our website will list members across the country, and direct customers to you. We advertise directly to the public, so if they're near you- they'll find you on our website. Just like The Hydragas Register is for hydrolastic suspension, we aim to be the go-to provider for electric and hybrid servicing and repairs.
  • Technical support- got stuck? Send us the details and we'll see if we can help. We're also building a support forum where we can all share information and help each other.
  • Backup- dealer won't do warranty repairs because you serviced a car instead of them? Let us know and we'll vouch for your professionalism and remind them of the relevant legislation.
  • Advice- we'll give advice to keep you within the relevant laws and avoid voiding any warranties.

What we don't do

  • Tell you what jobs to take on and what to avoid- if you think a particular repair job isn't for you, tell the customer.
  • Tell you what to charge- this is between you and your customers.
  • Take a commision of your jobs- we just list you on our professional register and the customers will contact you in the usual way.

What does HEVRA cost?

At the moment, HEVRA membership is free of charge. This will change eventually, and we're planning to charge in the region of 25 per month starting sometime in late 2018. We hope that you'll find membership useful during the trial period and decide this is worth the money.

What if I want to leave?

If you're not happy for whatever reason, let us know. If you're still not happy with the outcome and choose to cancel your membership, just let us know and you'll have nothing more to pay.

What do you do with the money?

Actually, this is (partly) up to our members. We raise money from membership fees, training course fees, and some other work we do for colleges and corporate customers. Members can vote each year on how our revenue is spent between technical support and marketing.

What do I need to do to become a member?

As mentioned above, membership is currently free so we don't need any money from you- if you decide to stay a member when we introduce our monthly fee, we'll be in touch to sort out payment. However, you need to meet our criteria in terms of training and equipment.
