 Abstract. In this paper we shall obtain that the nearring $C_0(V)$ of congruence preserving functions that are 0-preserving of a tame $N$-module $V$ of a nearring $N$ is finite when $N$ is finite. As a consequence, $C_0(V)$ of an expanded group $\langle V,+,F\rangle$ is finite when the nearring of 0-preserving polynomial functions $P_0(V)$ of $\langle V,+,F\rangle$ is finite. We then go on to obtain further consequences of this result.
