1. Overview

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) and Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) have merged to form the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).

A Nominated Tester (NT) is someone who’s approved to carry out MOT tests.

To become an NT, you’ll first need to show that you’re eligible.

If you meet the requirements you’ll then need to successfully complete a Nominated Tester Training (NTT) course.

Once you’re approved as an MOT tester you’ll need to take a refresher course every 5 years.
