Is it possible to become an MOT tester with no previous experience?

The short answer is No!  To become an M.O.T. tester (vehicle inspector in the UK) and qualified to work on vehicles within MOT Bays or MOT testing centres, you will need to meet certain requirements and complete specific training. Here are the general steps you can follow:

  1. First, you need to meet the eligibility rules set out by DVSA to become an MOT tester (see Concept blog post for more details)
  2. You will need to take an MOT tester qualification course.
  3. And then you must pass a Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) MOT demonstration test.

What else do I need to do to qualify as an MOT tester?

As well as your initial qualifications, to maintain your ability to be an MOT tester, you will also have to take MOT Annual Assessment Training when you’re qualified.

Do I have to already be a mechanic to become an MOT Tester?

Yes, you must already be a skilled mechanic and have a minimum of 4 years of full-time employment in servicing and repairing vehicles, and furthermore, this experience must be the types or classes of vehicles you want to MOT test once qualified as an MOT tester.
