MOT Annual Training

Do you have a plan in place for your annual training yet? With this years’ syllabus covering the whole MOT Inspection Manual, give your testers plenty of time and support with a comprehensive package from the RMI Academy of Automotive Skills.

Another annual training year is flying by, so make sure you have a plan in place for your technicians to complete their 2022/23 MOT annual training and assessment.

The RMI Academy of Automotive Skills offers a selection of MOT annual training packages to ensure that all testers can comply with DVSA’s requirements by this year’s deadline on 31st March 2023. These range from face-to-face training at your garage premises or an RMI Academy venue, to complete remote learning either online or in a physical workbook.

This year’s assessment pass mark remains at 80%, but due to the wide scope of the assessment syllabus we advise testers to ensure they complete their training and assessment in good time to accommodate potential re-takes.

The 2022/23 topics for group B (cars) are:

  • Managing your MTS Account and MOT Annual Training
  • Brake Test Procedures
  • MOT Test Procedures
  • The MOT Inspection Manual for cars and passenger vehicles

The 2022/23 topics for group A (motorcycles) are:

  • Managing your MTS Account and MOT Annual Training
  • Brake Test Procedures
  • MOT Test Procedures
  • The MOT Inspection Manual for motorcycles
