DVSA Special notice 03-22


Email Us

From 1 April 2022, some MOT testers will need to provide a basic disclosure certificate (also known as a DBS check) before they can carry out a demonstration test.

This change will apply to:

  • suspended MOT testers (2 or 5 years) who want to return to testing
  • MOT testers who have not carried out an MOT test in the last 5 years

The disclosure check must be dated within 3 months of your DVSA demonstration test. For example, a certificate dated 21 February 2022 would not be acceptable for a demonstration test booked for 30 May 2022.
