Premier MOT – Course Terms and Conditions

Attendance and Eligibility

Premier MOT Training does its best to ensure that a delegate(s) is assigned to the course(s) most appropriate to their current skill base and learning abilities.

A delegate(s) may be asked to complete a pre-assessment questionnaire to determine the most appropriate course based on existing knowledge and current skill set. It is the responsibility of the delegate(s) to answer all questions accurately and without the assistance of others.

If on starting a course it is identified that the skills and current knowledge of the delegate(s) is not at the required level for the course, alternative services will be offered. If alternative course options are longer in length or taught in smaller groups, there may be an additional cost to the delegate(s).

Course Cancellations

Premier MOT Training reserves the right to cancel any course at any time, in which alternative dates will be offered or a full refund given.

If you need to cancel a course for any reason please see our full terms and conditions on our website ( for options, entitlements and cancellation fees.
