All MOT testers must complete their annual training by March 31st 2017 as required by DVSA, so if you or your testers haven’t completed yours yet, you only have a few months left.
Recent surveys the IGA has carried out suggest that only around 20% of garages have completed their training so far, so we strongly recommend completing it as soon as possible, before Christmas is over and everyone will have to compete to book the limited number of training courses and packages that are left.
Have a read through our options and upcoming training dates below to find the package that best suits your business, and call 0845 305 4230 to get your training and assessment booked in.
Here’s the latest availability on all of our packages:
