About this course
All MOT Testers must now undertake MOT training and pass an assessment between 1 April and 31 March each year to keep their tester status. Testers must complete a minimum of 3 hours per year, totalling 16 hours across the rolling five-year period.
Cardiff & Vale College offer the CPD training relevant for 2019 – 2020 along with the assessment required and will provide testers with a certificate of attendance along with a CPD log which is sufficient for your records required by the DVSA.
What you will study
The 2019 to 2020 MOT annual training syllabus for class 3, 4, 5 and 7 vehicles (cars and other vehicles) covers these topics:
- driver’s view of the road
- headlamp aim
planning and recording
The assessment is an online test comprising of 30 multiple choice questions lasting up to 45 minutes.
If you have covered any of the above within another class syllabus, you do not need to repeat the training within the same year.
If you do not take an assessment during the training year, it could affect your testing status and may lead to disciplinary action being taken against you.
