Get yourself ATA accreditted, I did using a company called Premier MOT, I did, it was brilliant, I haven't looked back since. Not only did I become accreditted and then a tester because I had no formal qualifications, I can now carry out electrical and mechanical diagnosis, being self-employed I reckon my turnover doubled in the first 2 months

Got it now! I don't have any formal quals but can do the test instead, I've gone through the sample questions and only got stuck on two. What is the pass rate? Cheers
