MOT Testers risk suspension as deadline looms

By Mike Smith on March 8, 2019

The DVSA has warned that more than 40% of MOT testers face being suspended from testing if they don’t complete their annual training and assessment by the 31st March deadline.

If suspended, testers will need to complete all next year’s topics and take a demonstration test to be able to return to testing. Testers need to do at least 3 hours of training each year and a total of 16 hours in 5 years. The pass mark for the assessment is 70%.

2018 to 2019 training topics can be found here Site managers and authorised examiners can check testers have recorded their results correctly on the MOT testing service. The assessment is online so testers can complete this at home or at work, they can also use their notes and MOT inspection manual during the assessment.
