Instead of MOT tester refresher courses, from April 2016, between April and March every year, MOT testers are now required to complete Continual Professional Development (CPD).
In order to maintain their testing status, all nominated testers will have to complete a minimum of 3 hours MOT annual training every year and pass an annual assessment.
All testers are responsible for their own training, recording their training and keeping evidence of training. Also it is their responsibility to book and take the annual assessment.
All testers for vehicle test group class 1 and 2 or class 3, 4, 5 and 7 will have to:
- complete a minimum of 16 hours training over a rolling 5-year period
- complete a minimum of 3 hours training every year
- pass an annual assessment
This training course allows you to complete the required annual training and take the MOT Annual Assessment. In addition to covering CPD, Drivers View of the Road and Headlight (which is being offered by most training providers) we will also cover Special Notices and General Questions from the MOT Testers Guide.
Wiltshire College will run this qualification in a face to face teaching environment and a pre course study element online that will be sent prior to the course starting.
