Take your annual MOT tester training and assessment

Skip to contents of guide


If you’re already an MOT tester, you must complete training and pass an assessment between April and March every year.

Your MOT tester status will be suspended if you do not pass the annual assessment by 31 March.

There’s different guidance to become an MOT tester for the first time.

What you need to do

  1. Do at least 3 hours of MOT tester training each year.

  2. Keep a record of your training.

  3. Book and take your assessment.

  4. Check your assessment provider has uploaded your assessment results.

If you pass the assessment, you’ll get a certificate. You’ll find this in the ‘Annual assessment certificates’ section of your MOT testing service profile. Contact your assessment provider if your results have not been recorded correctly.

If your results have not been uploaded by the end of the training year, your MOT testing account will be suspended.
