What NTDA Membership Means

Having the right to display the distinctive ’kneeling man’ logo demonstrates that a business operates to the highest professional standards. It’s a sign of reassurance recognised equally by trade customers through to the private motorist.

More than 200 individual companies representing over 2000 tyre retail outlets, fast fit centres and associated auto-care aftermarket activities currently enjoy the prestige of displaying that logo and belonging to the NTDA, the UK’s largest and leading tyre trade association.
