This course is primarily developed for those who wish to run an MOT vehicle test station (VTS), or who will have direct responsibility for MOT operations at a VTS in the future.

As part of the changes to the MOT Scheme, this course has been introduced to replace the previous MOT Manager’s Course, which will no longer be offered by DVSA.

The MOT Scheme specifies mandatory roles, including nominated tester (NT), quality control (QC) and site manager (SM).
