PennDot Agent Guidance

PennDot Agent Guidance

Dear Member,

You may have heard of the recent intent of suspension letters PennDOT is sending out to Online Service Providers regarding missing work.  PIADA would like to remind you of your responsibilities as an Agent and what PennDOT may look for at the time of an audit.  As part of your agent agreement, you are required to retain copies of all deals processed for 3 (three) years no matter how they are completed.  Any work processed online that produces a barcode on the printout needs to be sent to your online provider (ex: CVR) and you must retain a copy.

PIADA Fast Blast - URGENT ACTION REQUESTED - Please contact your legislator

PIADA Fast Blast - URGENT ACTION REQUESTED - Please contact your legislator

Dear PIADA Member,

We need your help and ask you to contact your legislators today asking them to support HB 2264 and HB 2372.

We are expecting all of the Democratic members to oppose both HB 2064 (Culver-R) and HB 2372 (Schmitt-R) in committee since PennDOT continues to oppose both bills.  There is a good chance that these bills may be pulled from the committee agenda due to the opposition so we need to take action.

ProGuard Warranty Enhances Protection Coverage to Help Dealers Attract New Customers During Inventory Shortage

ProGuard Warranty Enhances Protection Coverage to Help Dealers Attract New Customers During Inventory Shortage

AVOCA, Pa., March 22, 2022 - ProGuard Warranty announced enhancements to their existing vehicle protection plans to help auto dealers adapt to current inventory shortages. These changes were developed to address the lack of new, rental and off-lease vehicles entering the market, a situation that has increased acquisition costs at the auction houses. Feeling the pinch, many dealers are being put in the position of either making a sale or making a profit. With products sold exclusively through dealers, ProGuard felt compelled to find alternative solutions to help dealers compete in today’s market.
