The VTS Test Log

Posted by on in Uncategorized
As I previously said that I would not harp on about the problems that the DVSA were causing you due to the extremely tight deadline they had to meet, one thing that has come to our notice, and I have already pointed out the dangers to the DVSA, is as follows:
The MOT Club has always stressed the need to use the Test Log in the management of the Scheme and that proper correlation with accounts is essential. Under the new system Site Managers cannot access this report under their ID at this stage.
NTs can access their own Test Record, and AEDMs and AEDs can access for the whole AE number which rather swings responsibility and workload away from where it should be. For those of you with multi site organisations perhaps you need to review the process used.
Below is the answer that DVSA provided to my question as to access by the SM
The straight answer is no....... but

The enhancement is coming soon that will allow a Site Manger to access the
VTS test log for a defined period or day/week/month/year

The work around is for the AE or AED role to download the test log in .csv
This can then be filtered by VTS number, saved and emailed to the site
manager within each VTS for audit.


Another interim alternative could be to get each NT to download their
personal test log in .csv to be audited by the Site Manager.
The enhancement coming “soon” after the experiences of the last month will be welcome when it arrives, but in the mean time you have businesses to run, profit to be made and let’s remember the old VOSA expression of standards to be met.
If we can be of any help in this matter just shout.
