What is Annual MOT Training?

Back in 2016, the DVSA introduced new rules around annual training which replaced the 5-year refresher course. It is now the MOT Testers’ responsibility to source and keep records of their own training every year between 1st April and 31st March.

Every MOT Tester must now:
  Complete at least 3 hours training each year (on specific topics set by the DVSA);
  Study/train on the significance and correct functioning of new features that are introduced on vehicle types that they are likely to be asked to test;
  Keep a record of completed training (must be shown to a VE on a site visit);
  Log their annual training session(s) on your MTS profile.

You can find out more about the 2024-25 annual training and assessment topics here.

Your MOT testing status is at risk if you do not complete a minimum of 3 hours of annual DVSA training before March 31st .
