We told you recently in a blog post called 'MOT trade helps develop MOT occupational standards' that the Sector Skills Council for the automotive retail industry and DVSAs MOT Training Education and Skills Support team have been developing National Occupational Standards.
You can now read and comment on the suggested Standards for the roles of MOT managers and testers on the Sector Skills website.
These standards state the knowledge and understanding you require as well as the performance levels you must achieve when managing a Vehicle Testing Station or carrying out an MOT test.
Once your comments have been included, the UK Commission for Employment and Skills will approve the final standards. Training providers will then use these to develop modern MOT manager and tester qualifications.
Contact MTESS@vosa.gov.uk if you have any questions or comments about professionalising the roles of MOT managers and testers.
