All MOT Testers are now required to complete regular Annual MOT Tester Training and pass an Annual Assessment.
From April 2016 the DVSA will no longer be running the MOT Tester Refresher course. Instead this will be replaced with Annual MOT Tester Training and an Annual Assessment that all MOT Testers have to complete, track and pass to keep their testing status.
All MOT Testers now have to complete a minimum of 3 hours of Annual MOT Tester Training and pass the open-book exam annually as part of their Continuing Professional Development (CPD Training).

All testers must complete the new MOT annual training and annual assessment before the end of March 2017 – no matter what their refresher training status is. Failure to do so will affect your MOT Tester status.

All testers must complete their MOT annual training and pass an annual assessment between the start of April and the following March each year.

To maintain your testing status for the vehicle classes you test, you will be responsible for:

• Planning and completing your annual training

• Recording annual training

• Passing the annual assessment.

If you test classes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7 (i.e. motorcycles and cars and other vehicles) you will be required to sit the assessments and training for both types.

Class 1 and 2 vehicles

The MOT annual training syllabus for class 1 and 2 vehicles will cover:

• Lighting and signaling equipment

• Brakes

• CPD planning and recording

Class 3, 4, 5 and 7 vehicles

The MOT annual training syllabus for class 3, 4, 5 and 7 vehicles will cover:

• Driver’s view of the road

• Headlamp aim

• CPD planning and recording

The exam is multiple-choice and should take no longer than 45 minutes to complete. It is open-book and the pass rate is 50%.

The exam can be completed online, with further details about how to book the assessment being released in June 2016. Premier MOT Training will be offering a combination of training, guidance and the chance to sit the exam from our 3 locations in Essex, Berkshire and the Midlands.
