What will I be learning?

This qualification is recognised by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), as meeting its requirements to apply to become an MOT Tester.
Once qualified, an MOT Tester learner will need to demonstrate competence by completing a DVSA observed and assessed demonstration test. DVSA will then issue a Certificate of Competence (CoC) and will authorise the individual to become a qualified nominated tester (NT).
This qualification will support experienced individuals working within the automotive service and repair sector to:
• develop a detailed understanding of the knowledge and skills required to carry out statutory periodic road worthiness inspections on behalf of the Secretary of State for Transport.
• and acquire the pre-requisite qualification that is required in order to apply to DVSA for the final observation inspection to become a qualified nominated tester (NT).
