Mazda Recommended Repairer Programme

SAMBRA has concluded an agreement with Mazda Southern Africa (PTY) LTD whereby SAMBRA extends an invitation to SAMBRA Accredited Members to apply to become Mazda Recommended Repairers.

For those already in the Mazda Recommended Repairer Programme: New Letters of Recommendation are currently being processed and will be distributed via e-mail.

Mazda certificates are no longer issued and have been replaced by Letters of Recommendation, which will be renewable annually at the end of March.

Those members requiring Mazda signage may contact the SAMBRA Head Office in Cape Town.

This ongoing approach by Mazda is industry-changing as it affords more Members the opportunity to be included in the process.

To apply, complete the form below, and please pay special attention to the qualifying criteria.

Applications are reviewed quarterly, and the submission deadlines are as follow:

  1. 1st quarter – Before the end of February 2020
  2. 2nd quarter – Before the end of May 2020
  3. 3rd quarter – Before the end of August 2020
  4. 4th quarter – Before the end of November 2020

All Letters of Recommendation expire and are renewable on 31 March annually, irrespective of when applications were made.


  • Members who applied previously but were unsuccessful are required to reapply – provided they meet the criteria.
  • Unless otherwise informed by SAMBRA or Mazda, current Mazda Recommended Repairers are not required to reapply to retain their status; Mazda will automatically send them an updated letter.
