The fewer the 'Best practice' examples provided, the quicker the assessments - the more systems you can demonstrate the longer it takes to assess them - so you must be good Kev ;););)

Something else that came up in the seminar is that changes are being made to the site assessment. The number of questions will be drastically reduced, and for some reason what's left is going to be about the MOT scheme, instead of the number and condition of your toilets , and do you lay on tea and biccies. It has already been trialled and takes about an hour and a half. That should cheer people up a bit

my last site assessment was a DBA over the phone, only took 20 minutes. 2 out of 3 anual assessments will be done that way if in the green.


Vehicle & Operator Services Agency Operations Manual

Section 3 Vehicle Testing Scheme
Operating Instructions
9 – Desk Based Assessment Overview


DBA Outcomes

Desk Based Assessment – Overview
VTSs with a green status will have a MOTSA every three years. In between they will receive an annual DBA carried out by trained and validated assessors at the Contact Centre, Swansea.
A Desk Based Assessment comprises two parts:-
An analysis of data from the MOT Scheme Performance report including:

Actual throughput (by comparison to the maximum throughput recorded at the last MOTSA);

Initial test times;

Failure rates;

Replacement rates;

Any noticeable differences between the performance of NTs at the VTS,

QC Index – a check that one is present on the report;
A telephone interview, normally with the Site Manager but if he is not available the person responsible for MOT testing at the VTS at the time of the call (Responsible Person (RP)) to include:

Exploration of reasons for any anomalies revealed by the analysis of the Scheme Performance Report;

Scripted questions designed to check that the RP has a suitable knowledge of MOT Testing;

The opportunity for the RP to ask any question of the assessor;
The assessor will record the details from the DBA directly onto MOT Computerisation.
