Dedicated technicians.

In the UK, first line support will be provided by a team of 95 Dedicated Technicians, fully trained by Volkswagen and carrying the latest diagnostic equipment, specialist tools and parts.

To provide the greatest benefit to Volkswagen owners, these Dedicated Technicians will be allocated to the most complex and technical breakdowns.

With this comprehensive back-up available we are confident that you will experience an even better quality and personal service should you need us.

Finally, we haven’t just concentrated on our roadside staff. We have also established a dedicated office team for Volkswagen customers. This team will be able to support you throughout any breakdown experience or accident and includes technical support colleagues who will be on hand to provide advice.
