The European Bureau of the FIA represents the interest of 35 million members of 71 national automobile clubs in Europe and works together with the automobile clubs in European projects. The main interests represented are in the field of road safety, transport efficiency, fuel efficiency and environmental impact. The national automobile clubs are active in services with related to driver training and information and education, through their driving schools, training centres, club magazines and websites.

The FIA European Bureau cooperates with the clubs in self-funded European test programmes of mobility structure and services (EuroTest and EuroTAP). The FIA European Bureau also participates on behalf of the clubs in EU funded projects, usually cooperating with the clubs on dissemination activities.
