We would like to remind all MOT testers that you have to record your training as proof that you’ve done enough. You must keep a record to show any DVSA staff who visit your vehicle testing station (VTS) and you have to keep those records for 5 years.
Disciplinary action can be taken against you and it can affect your tester status if you don’t keep training records.
What to include in your record
There’s no set format that you have to use for your training record, but it must include:
- your name and user ID
- which vehicle groups your training covered, such as class 1 and 2
- the date of the training
- how long the training session lasted
- what topics you covered during the session
- notes on what you did, how you did it and what you learned
You can use a template from DVSA to record it.
Record your result
You have to record your Annual Assessment result on the MOT testing service.
- your certificate number
- the date it was awarded
- the score you achieved
