2021-2022 DVSA Approved CPD Training

The DVSA changed the way MOT Tester training was carried out from 2016. The MOT Tester refresher course was replaced with the MOT annual training and assessment program referred to as Continuing Professional Development (CPD). The DVSA no longer deliver the training and assessment so the Nominated Tester five year refresher course is obsolete. The new process will follow Continuing Professional Development (CPD) models with testers required to complete a minimum period of training and pass an annual "on-line" assessment every year for the vehicle classes they test, in order to maintain their testing status.

They will also need to provide detailed evidence of the completed training or maintain the appropriate training record.

Failure to complete the yearly CPD Training and provide evidence, may result in the suspension of an MOT Testers Status.

2021-2022 MOT Tester CPD is Now Available.

Offered as a Morning or Afternoon course at £79.95*
