Obtaining Your Vehicle Security Credential (VSC) & Becoming a Vehicle Security Professional (VSP):  Five Things Every ASCCA Member Should Know 

Locksmith Identification has been changed to VSC which means Vehicle Security Credentials to better represent what automotive repair professionals do. A person that holds a VSC is called a Vehicle Security Professional (VSP). Over the past few weeks, there have been important updates regarding the Vehicle Security Credentials registry that ASCCA shop owner members should be aware of.

Action Alert AB 2825 (Oppose unless Amended) 

Please call or contact your Senator TODAY and urge them to oppose AB 2825, unless amended.
AB 2825 treats auto repair shops as "debt collectors". Auto repair businesses are not "debt collectors", they are small businesses that service and repair vehicles for their customers. This bill is very complicated, far reaching and has many problems.
Communications with customers may subject YOU to strict liability, unnecessary fines, penalties and frivolous lawsuits.
