The dealer competence test, launched in October, was developed by the FLA to raise standards and improve skills for those involved in the sale of motor finance.
Glenn Trew, of Blue Motor Finance, has become the 2,000th individual to gain the certificate.
He said: “The SAF competence test has really helped my understanding of the different finance products available to our customers.”
Lookers was one of the first dealer groups to get involved.
Paul Bentley, Lookers group F&I director said: “The SAF test enables us to confirm that our teams have the knowledge, skills and competence required to offer out customers a professional and concise understanding of all matters relating to the sale of finance.”
