Annual Training Update - Regional Events and Extra Availability

Annual Training Update - Regional Events and Extra Availability

30 September 2016

All MOT testers must complete their annual training by March 31st 2017. If you, or your testers, haven’t taken yours yet, we recommend booking and completing it as soon as possible, before Christmas gets in the way and there is a mad dash to meet the deadline afterwards.

Booking your training through us gives you peace of mind that you’ve met DVSA requirements, and gives you the option to take the training and assessment in the way that works best for you or your business.

Here are the latest updates on all of our packages:

Regional Training Events

Due to the success of our previous events, we are holding three new regional training events to reach those of you who would like to complete your three hours of training classroom style, but are not in easy reach of the RMI Academy in Southam.

These are being held on:

Tuesday 8th November: Newcastle - Blaydon RFC, NE16 3BN

Tuesday 29th November: Hemel Hempstead - Hemel Stags Rugby Club, HP2 5UD

Tuesday 13th December: Taunton - Wyvern Club, TA1 3BJ

The three hour training sessions cover the 2016/2017 MOT annual training syllabus, then the online assessment will then need to be completed in your own time.

Tickets cost £70 + VAT, and you can click on the event you would like to attend above to book tickets through EventBrite. Places are strictly limited to 40 per event.

Doors will open at 09:30am, and the events will last from 10:00am until 1:00pm.

Annual Training Workbooks

If you’d rather take your training in your own time, our annual training workbooks are a popular, cost-effective option. The workbook contains login details so you can access the online assessment, and it is also an easy way to record your training as there is a form to sign within the book, which you can keep on file.

Workbooks are £45 + VAT, and you can order as many as you need by calling us on 0845 305 4230.

Classroom Training

The next training sessions at the RMI Academy in Southam, with the annual assessment taking place at the end of the course, are being held on Thursday 27th October and Thursday 15th November. Places are limited to 12 per session.

If you’d like to take this option but the current dates on offer aren’t suitable, give us a call as we may be able to put on another event for you.

This package costs £75 + VAT and consists of a training session, access to the online assessment, an RMI workbook, and tea/coffee and lunch.

For more information, or to book a place at our training session, please call us on 0845 305 4230.

On-Site Training

Our MOT QC field team can deliver annual training at your premises for up to 6 testers at a time. The online assessment may be taken immediately following the course with the trainer present if time permits, otherwise testers can take it at their own convenience.

The price for the training session is £200 + VAT, and includes RMI workbooks for each candidate. This does not include online assessment costs, which are £34 + VAT per delegate.

For more information, or to book your visit, please call us on 0845 305 4230.


Annual training and the online assessment can be carried out fully online through an e-learning system. This option is also available for class 1 and 2 vehicles (motorcycles).

This package costs £60 + VAT which includes access to e-learning and the online assessment.

For more information, or to book the e-learning course, please call us on 0845 305 4230.

Extra Information

All of our packages include at least three hours of training or self-learning for the 2016/2017syllabus for class 4 and 7 vehicles, plus the online assessment. They all meet the mandatory annual requirements set by the DVSA.

Please note that once a login code has been issued for an online assessment or an e-learning package, it is not refundable under any circumstances.
