As part of the revision to the MOT Tester training, from 1st April 2016 the 5 year MOT Tester Refresher Course was replaced with MOT Annual Training and Annual Assessment, which each existing and new MOT Testers will have to complete in order to maintain their testing status.
Every MOT Tester will be required to complete training as follows:-
This process, often referred to as Continuous Professional Development (CPD), will allow MOT Testers to update their skills each year in a manageable way, without the need to be trained by DVSA over a 2 day period every 5 years.
The syllabus is set by DVSA and changes yearly (1st April through to 31st March) with the industry being informed of the changes early in the year that it starts.
Every MOT Tester will need to plan their annual training and keep a record of it as evidence that they have completed it, this may be through a hard copy/certificates or held within a computerised system. Each time the Vehicle Testing Station is inspected by DVSA, all of the MOT Tester records will be checked to ensure this has been completed as required.
Each MOT Tester will also have to pass an Annual Assessment Test (the test will be aligned to the annual training needs, DVSA Special Notices and general MOT Testing) which will be completed online.
