Can your business survive without the MOT scheme?
Our consultants are former DVSA (VOSA) Vehicle Examiners with over 30 year’s experience and we offer the most up to date advice and guidance on all MOT Testing matters. Unlike other companies we do not offer an annual subscription we only work for you when you need us. In all cases, we highly recommend a Compliance Audit. This is a DVSA based Risk Assessment that scores your VTS into the Green, Amber or Red band. So the better you score the fewer visits your VTS will get from the DVSA. The Compliance Audit is a health check of your systems and will highlight areas you need to focus on to improve with help from us if you require it.
Recently the DVSA replaced the 5-year MOT refresher course with annual training. The new mandatory training requires each Nominated Tester (NT) to carry out a minimum of 3 hours training and in some cases 5 hours if the NT is qualified to test both group A (Motorcycles) and group B (Vehicles). The mandatory training is then followed by an annual assessment, which all Nominated Testers must complete by March 31st 2017. Authorised Examiners must ensure and document that the NT’s comply with the DVSA requirements for annual training and assessments. Non-compliance will affect your VTS risk score and the NT’s ability to continue testing.
How can we help?
