A new qualification for MOT testers and managers is being introduced by the DVSA “to help improve the skills of those who work in the MOT testing industry”.
The department says: “Each year millions of MOT tests are carried out. While the vast majority are conducted to the correct standard, errors can and have occurred.
This new qualification along with the training and assessment regime introduced in April 2016, is intended to improve standards and consistency across the industry.
In turn, this will help motorists to feel more confident that their MOT result is right, and that their vehicle will be tested in a highly professional manner.”
