Another Outstanding Review From DVSA


We have received feedback from our latest DVSA visit which has left us overjoyed.

The DVSA representative saw Iain Atkins, Managing Director at Premier MOT Training, teaching the MOT Manager Course at our Newbury Centre.

Iain started Premier MOT Training back in 2008 to help mechanics become fully qualified MOT Testers. As well as being an experienced MOT tester, Iain is also a fully qualified Master Technician, Hybrid Technician, Air Con Technician, ATA Assessor and level 5 lecturer. With extensive experience within the automotive industry, Iain has helped set up numerus vehicle testing stations and has also successfully ran his own automotive coaching and training business for the past 20 years’.

After viewing the 4 days training and speaking with some of the students on the course, the DVSA representative gave the following feedback:

“The course benefitted from a wealth of knowledge that the trainer Iain Atkins was able to draw upon. Significant planning and preparation had taken place and the trainer’s enthusiasm for the subject knowledge was self evident.

Excellent use of syndicate working and persistent reminders to ‘check the manual’ resulted in a very thorough course.”
