MOT Tester to become nationally recognised qualification

On June 3rd 2015, the government blog “Matters of Testing” announced that the DVSA’s MTESS (MOT Training, Education and Skills Support) team are in the process of developing a nationally recognised qualification for MOT Testers and Authorised Examiners.

The change will fundamentally:

  • Professionalise the role of MOT Testers and Authorised Examiners
  • Provide flexible learning for candidates
  • Imporve productivity
  • Provide a more modern approach to training requested by industry
