Michigan Orders Unregistered Repair Shop to Cease Operations

Order Reprints

Feb. 7, 2018—Michigan has ordered a Grand Rapids auto repair shop to stop operations after discovering the business was not registered, and did not have a certified mechanic, Nexstar Media Group reports.

The Secretary of State’s Office issued the cease and desist order on Jan. 31 for Guevara Brothers Auto Repair, after state inspection prompted by concerns of potential city code and zoning violations.

With his new business, shop owner Florentino Guevara must comply with Michigan law before his business can accept any more auto repair jobs.

He could face a misdemeanor charge and $1,000 fine if he knowingly provides repair services without a registration or certificate.
