Motor Vehicle Repair
The Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources regulates motor vehicle repair shops and mechanics in Miami-Dade County.
The Motor Vehicle Repair Ordinance requires that all vehicle repair shops (mechanical, paint and body repair) and mechanics/technicians/apprentices be registered with the County and comply with various regulations. See Motor Vehicle Repair Ordinance
One of these regulations requires the posting of a sign regarding the provision of written estimates. This sign must be in a conspicuous place, must be in English, Spanish and Creole, and must provide the phone number.
Shops are required to have specialized equipment to perform repairs. Mechanics must take a test to demonstrate competency and must take 16 hours of continuing education every year. Apprenties must work under the supervision of a certified mechanic.
