MOT testers must complete their annual training and pass the assessment by 30 April 2021. If you still haven't completed your MOT Annual Training and Assessment 2020/2021, we have some useful tips that will give you the best chance of passing the test the first time.
Failing is simply not an option as it means suspension from your role as an MOT tester, which would have a detrimental effect on your career in the automotive industry.
Please read our advice and we are sure you will breeze through the assessment.
