Becoming a Tester

Our MOT qualification offer consists of Tester courses in both Light Vehicle (classes 4 and 7) and Motorcycle (classes 1 and 2) and the Test Centre Management qualification. Current MOT testers are now required to undertake a minimum of 3 hours' annual training, to remain up-to-date with best practice methods. All testers must complete an MOT annual assessment, based on this DVSA specification, to maintain their professional status. We offer a package for MOT testers to complete both their MOT annual training and MOT annual assessment.
