Dealer numbers static

The number of dealers on the Motor Vehicle Traders Register (MVTR) did not change last month and came in at 2,910 at the end of January.

The total hit that level after dropping by 12 dealers in December and the latest figure is also two lower than the 2,912 registered traders in January 2023.

Dealer numbers have largely been in decline since hitting a high of 3,536 in November 2017.

The MVTR holds essential information about registered traders and their businesses. It is operated by Trading Standards, which falls under the remit of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
