MOT Testing Award

Course Content

To modernise the MOT scheme the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has changed the way MOT training is carried out. These changes aim to improve overall road and vehicle safety by increasing professionalism through the introduction of nationally-recognised qualifications and a wider variety of training options.


Applicants can now nominate themselves to attend a course, instead of having to be nominated by their garage as was previously the case. Anyone who wants to become an MOT Tester or an Authorised Examiner/ Designated Manager will be required to achieve these qualifications to apply for their licence in England, Wales and Scotland. Training is delivered over 4 full days from 9-4pm & half day assessment 9- 2pm.

Entry Requirements

Candidates must have a Level 3 qualification in a relevant area, hold a clean driver's licence and work in full-time employment on the vehicle class to be tested.

Method of Assessment

Practical observation & online assessment
