What does the Autobrite approval involve?

During the day

The Autobrite approval process begins with a prospective client attending AD HQ in Stoke on Trent for a skills-based assessment day, during the day the client will be required to demonstrate their skills and product knowledge by carrying out a range of detailing-related tasks on a supplied vehicle.

During the day one of our detailing team members will follow the process checking techniques, correct use of products and tools, and overall quality of finish.

The Business Side

Once the physical work has been completed, we may also ask you a few business-related questions about customer relations, promoting your business, and how you represent the Autobrite values in your day-to-day routine.
