RMI Annual Training Update

RMI Annual Training Update

28 June 2016

Compulsory annual training for the 2016/2017 period is now well underway. Three hours of training and the annual assessment MUST be completed by March 2017, and we recommend that you complete it as soon as possible so you don’t have to rush later in the year along with the rest of the country’s testers.

The RMI are here to help all MOT testers complete their annual training and assessment. Below you can find the latest information on all of the options we offer. If you’re not sure which one is right for you, call us on 0845 305 4230 and we can advise you on the most convenient option for your business.

The following options meet the DVSA’s minimum training requirements for vehicle classes 3, 4, 5 and 7.

RMI Annual Training Workbooks

Our annual training workbooks are flying off the shelves as this is the most cost-effective option for those wishing to take their annual training in their own time.

Annual training workbooks cost £45 + VAT, which includes access to the online assessment.

Please note that all of the options below, apart from the E-learning package, will also come with a workbook for this year, i.e. the 2016/2017 syllabus, only. This means you will able to do more than the minimum required for annual training in this first year to help you find out what works for your business.

For those looking for more formal training, take a look at the following options:

Upcoming Annual Training Events

The first annual training regional event in Bristol last month was a great success, with 18 MOT testers successfully completing their annual training. The next local training sessions are being held on:

Tuesday 19th July: Culcheth Sports Club, Warrington

Thursday 18th August: Bury St Edmunds RUFC, Bury St Edmunds

Tickets cost £70 + VAT and include entrance to your local training event, an RMI workbook and access to the online assessment.

Classroom Training at the RMI Academy

The next training sessions at the RMI Academy, with the annual assessment taking place at the end of the course, are being held on Thursday 28th July and Wednesday 14th August.

This package costs £75 + VAT and consists of a training session, access to the online assessment, and an RMI workbook. Places are limited to 12 per session, so call us now on 0845 305 4230 to book.

On-Site Training

We also offer on-site training, where a member of our MOT QC field team will deliver annual training at your premises for up to 6 testers at a time. The online assessment can be taken immediately following the course with the trainer present, or 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.


If none of the above options sound right for you, annual training and the online assessment can also be carried out fully online through an e-learning system.

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

The following option meets the DVSA’s minimum training requirements for class 1 and 2 vehicles.

Motorcycle E-learning Annual Training

We are now able to offer an annual e-learning training package for class 1 and 2 vehicles. This will mirror the above e-learning package offered for class 3, 4, 5 and 7 vehicles, including the cost.

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.

If you haven’t booked your annual training yet, call the member helpline now on 0845 305 4230 to book any of the options above.
