MoT Testing is Changing

Posted by on in MoT Testing

The MOT Club has teamed up with ABC Awards to offer MOT Annual Training and Assessment, the DVSA have now changed the way the Tester Refresher Training happens.

It used to be that every 5 years an NT had to attend a 2 day course provided by the DVSA. This has now been replaced and the NT must complete a minimum of 16 hours training over a rolling 5-year period, complete a minimum of 3 hours training every year (April to March) and pass a 45 minute, 30 multiple choice question open book assessment. The assessment is done online and is provided by ABC Awards, the results of the assessment and evidence of training records will eventually affect the VTS's risk score making it vital for VTS's to ensure their staff achieve a high score.
Here at the MOT Club we have put a package together to help your NTs achieve desirable results, manage the recording of training and provide visibility to Managers and Authorised Examiners.

 The new package will be available to members who already have the web software and includes the following :

  • A dedicated section on the website will be available in a format acceptable to the DVSA to log tester training records.
  • All NTs will be interviewed as to their comprehension of the current syllabus (Drivers View of the Road, Headlamp Testing) and appropriate records made.
  • Quality Management history will be examined for areas that require training and again tabulated. In house Quality Management will become more valid and creditable to DVSA.
  • Subsequent to Quality Management undertaken by our Regional Managers, discussions will ensue regarding routine, areas of weakness, and errors made and with reference to the Inspection Manual, education imparted and recorded.
  • The Assessment exam will be set up and administered by the Staff of the MOT Club under the accreditation of ABC Awards.
  • Where NTs or VTSs do not co-operate details will be given to the appropriate manager for supportive action.
  • All NTs will be able to exhibit in excess of the required 3 hours training.

To discuss this package, upgrade your membership, or join the MOT Club please call 01934 421335. Not a member? We can still assist with the assessment so please get in touch!
