It is for any shop that has to repair, replace recalibrate or tinker with an ADAS system.

There are a few questions that refer specifically to body techs and body repairs that can not be answered correctly from a mechanical shop perspective. Question 15 was also a challenge as it required an answer: "15. Do you participate in a certified collision repair shop program from an OEM? (Select all that apply)" In my case none applied. I had to pick one to move to the next step.

It is very apparent this is geared towards body shops. Several questions how many body techs. 0 for me. square footage of shop 0 for me. mobile guy. I would love to help with this survey. I would also like to answer truthfully. I did not get past the 2 questions as I could not answer them. no choice.
