MOT DVSA VT01 Application Process


Email Us


If you want to set up a new MOT testing station or convert an existing garage to perform MOT tests, then you need to be familiar with the VT01 process and aware of the steps involved.


The DVSA VT01 form must be completed to apply for the set up or change of an MOT test station, including becoming an Authorised Examiner (the person or business that runs it).


Where to get the VT01 Form

You can download the VT01 form from the website publications section regarding the VT01 application process, or by clicking this  VT01 Download Link.

After looking at the DVSA VT01 form for the first time, the process can seem extremely daunting. The information below will give you everything you need to complete the VT01 application yourself. Read on for all the supporting documents you will need to support your application.


Starting the VT01 Application Process

Once you decide on your MOT equipment supplier and have the MOT Bay dimensions, the next step is the VT01 application process. Take some time to study this document, as any mistakes can be very costly and may delay your application’s authorisation.

You will also need to decide who your Authorised Examiner Designated Manager (AEDM) will be. If you have one site and one director, then that is easy it must be that one person. If you have one site with multiple directors, you must choose who would do the role of AEDM as it must be one of the directors. You may designate the role to a trusted manager if you have multiple directors and more than one site. For sole traders and partnerships, it must be one of the partners or the sole trader. Again, you may designate this role if you are a multi-site business.


MOT tester or manager course

You need an MOT manager qualification course before you can become an Authorised Examiner Designated Manager (AEDM), also known as an MOT business manager.
