The Award in MOT Testing Class M and N and the MOT Management Award have been designed with the DVSA and awarding bodies. One gives potential vehicle testers the knowledge and skills required to perform the MOT Test to the correct standards. The other supports managers to gain an understanding about the everyday running of an MOT station that is required by the supervisory body.

To be eligible for the Award in MOT Testing Class M and N, it is essential to have a minimum of 4 years’ experience in a working garage as a technician, a full UK driving licence for the vehicle class you want to test and a Level 3 qualification in vehicle service and repair or similar.

If you are an experienced technician and you have no qualifications, you can still access the MOT Tester course by completing a pre-course qualification such as the ATA Light Vehicle Inspection, IMI.

Please note you must have access to an MOT testing bay at your work premises for the DVSA demonstrator test, that you must arrange. However, if you do not have access the college may arrange this for a further fee of £270.00, subject to individual circumstances.


Our experienced automotive team has the necessary skills, knowledge and equipment to help you gain your vehicle testers licence and support you along the way with expert tuition. We can offer you:
• The MOT Tester Award
• The MOT Management Award (necessary to become an Authorised examiner).

The MOT Tester Award covers Working Safely within a Vehicle Test Centre, Working Relationships, Professional Development, Pre-Test Checks and The MOT Test Method.


For the MOT Tester Award, you will complete a 4-day course leading to practical and theory tests. The final test is completed by a submission of the VT8 observation form. You will then be observed at your work place by a DVSA vehicle examiner pre-arranged by yourself or your line manager.
