About PDR Testing:

The Vale Automotive Program has been an industry standard for decades. The introduction of our advanced 3D dent measurement methodology established the Vale Certified PDR Technician designation as a recognized credential of excellence.

Why PDR Testing?

The Vale PDR Certification Testing was developed at the request of PDR industry professionals. The testing is a timed evaluation of actual Paintless Dent Repairs on steel and aluminum panels using a state-of-the-art, digital-optic surface measurement device.

The Vale PDR Certification Program is the only PDR Certification endorsed by the National Association of Paintless Dent Repair Technicians or NAPDRT.
