MOT trade helps develop MOT occupational standards

MTESS group of people

The Sector Skills Council for the automotive retail industry and DVSA’s MOT Training Education and Skills Support (MTESS) team are developing National Occupational Standards. They met last month at venues in England, Scotland and Wales with representatives from the MOT trade to discuss specific skills and knowledge for MOT testers, AEs and site managers.

DVSA’s MOT Training, Education and Skills Support (MTESS) team is currently developing nationally recognised qualifications that will professionalise the role of MOT testers and AEs (Authorised Examiners). The aim is to modernise the way in which MOT tester and AE training is carried out, to better meet the needs of our customers.
