Annual Assessment Retakes

The pass mark for 1 May 2021 to 31 March 2022 is 80%.

You will receive a certificate if you pass your assessment. Keep it with your training record.

With all RMI training packages, one free assessment retake is allowed should you not pass on the first attempt. After that, another fee will be chargeable. To request your complimentary retake code, call 01158 541 398 or email with your DVSA User ID and date of birth.

If you do not pass, there’s no limit on how many times you can take the assessment during the same year.

You must stop carrying out MOT tests if you have not passed by the end of the training year. Your MOT testing account will be suspended.

Once you’ve passed, you need to request and pass an MOT demonstration test. Your account will then be unsuspended.

MOT demonstration tests are not taking place because of coronavirus (COVID-19). You can still email DVSA to request an MOT demonstration test. DVSA will contact you when testing restarts.

You’ll need to include:

  • your MOT testing service user ID

  • the MOT centre number of where you want to take the test
