You MUST complete your compulsory MOT Annual Training this month

You MUST complete your compulsory MOT Annual Training this month

28 February 2017

From what we have seen so far this year, a large proportion of MOT testers still haven’t completed their annual training and assessment. This must be completed by the end of the month.

This mandatory training is set by DVSA, who has started that “it is your responsibility to complete the training each year to avoid disciplinary consequences” and “you can lose your MOT tester status if you don’t take training and pass an annual assessment between 1 April and 31 March each year.”

If you have already bought access to the online assessment but haven’t taken the test yet, please remember do this before March 31st, leaving time for re-takes if necessary.

If you still need to complete you training, the RMI has plenty of last minute options available. Here is our current availability for each package:

Annual Training Workbook - Available Until mid-March

Our annual training workbooks are a popular, cost-effective option as they allow you to train in your own time. The workbook contains login details for the online assessment, and there is also a form to sign within the book to record your training and keep on file.

We allow 7-10 days for workbooks to arrive via post and you will need time to take the training and assessment, so please order as soon as possible.

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

Classroom Training at the RMI Academy - Available Daily until March 31st

If you’re based within reach of Warwickshire, the RMI Academy is holding annual training classroom sessions every single weekday until March 31st. You’ll be able to complete both the training and assessment in one day, which makes this a convenient last-minute option.

To book a place, please call us on 0845 305 4230.

This package costs £75 + VAT and includes a training session, access to the online assessment, an RMI workbook, and tea/coffee and lunch. Click here for the latest dates and availability.

Regional Training Events - Available until March 23rd

The RMI has been touring the country for testers who prefer face-to-face training in their local area. We now have 9 regional training events left to take place across the UK.

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

Here are the remaining dates and locations:

E-Learning - Available Until March 31st

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

If this is your preferred option, you can register your interest for the 2017/18 training period now by calling 0845 305 4230.
