MoT news - Testing Times for Nominated Testers

Posted by on in The MoT Club

The following information has recently featured on the DVSA blog and is news to The MoT Club. It has yet to be discussed with the trade bodies.
Many of you will remember when this was an annual event and every NT was obliged to participate. The inspection was discontinued due to austerity measures,
i.e. short staff, a situation that hasn’t improved. Enquiries will be made as to the reinstatement of this inspection and we will post any further information.

Their post follows :
“The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) will soon be carrying out a new activity when visiting some sites.
This will be known as an ‘observed inspection with defects’.

The activity will help us to make sure NTs (Nominated Testers) are inspecting vehicles correctly and applying the correct test standards.

A DVSA Vehicle Examiner (VE) will ask the tester to carry out a full MOT test and will observe the inspection. After the test, the VE will offer advice and guidance where needed.
If procedures or standards haven’t been applied correctly, the VE will discuss the next steps with the tester.

This activity will mostly happen at sites where the risk scores falls into Red or Amber. We have also trialled it around the country with a number of MOT Garages.
The feedback was positive from both the Trade and DVSA staff.”
