MOT Annual Refresher Training

Maintaining MOT Tester status

From April 2016 all current and new MOT testers will be required to record a minimum of 3 hours training annually, and a minimum of 16 hours over a rolling five year period. Each year DVSA will publish a syllabus in January that will cover the requirements for the following year (April to end March). In addition, they will need to pass an online MOT annual assessment – if they wish to remain an MOT tester. The individual will be required to maintain a log of the annual training and evidence of completing this test- which may be checked at any time by DVSA. Failure to maintain the required training or achieve an acceptable score in the annual test may result in their Tester Status being withdrawn.
