Can your business survive without the MOT scheme?

We are the UK’s leading MOT Experts on all MOT legal and technical matters and our consultants are former DVSA Vehicle Examiners with over 30 years’ experience. Unlike other consultancies, we do not offer an annual subscription or membership we only work for you when you need us.

Once you become a client of LJM Compliance Solutions, advice and support via email and telephone is provided as part of our service and there is no requirement to pay a monthly fee to receive this. We are always here for you.


How can we help?

We offer Compliance Audits. This is a DVSA based Site Review that scores your VTS either satisfactory, improvements needed or unsatisfactory. 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.

Authorised Examiners must ensure and document that the testers comply with the DVSA requirements for annual training and assessments. Non-compliance will affect your VTS risk score and the testers' ability to continue testing.

In order to stay qualified as a MOT Tester, you must 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 MOT Testers must complete between April and March every year.

​We offer Tester Quality Control checks whether you are a small VTS with one tester or a large franchise with numerous testers, we can carry out Quality Control checks on you and your staff.

As an Authorisation, you have made a promise to the DVSA to carry out these checks. Keeping on top of your Quality Control checks is extremely important, it helps keep standards high and Testers up to date with current special notices. A robust Quality Control system will help protect the Authorisation against a potential disciplinary action.

​We offer MOT disciplinary representation nationwide. In the unfortunate event that one of your MOT Testers or the Vehicle Testing Station comes under the investigation of the DVSA we can help, for example:

  • Cessation of an AEs MOT authorisation to carry out statutory vehicle testing.

  • Cessation of a testers' MOT approval to test motor vehicles

  • Refusal to grant an application by an AE to change the business entity of their authorisation.

We will also attend MOT appeals with you or on your behalf. We can offer written responses to Contemplated Disciplinary Letters. We will ensure that the process is followed correctly, and we get the best outcome for you.
