Secondly, you can actually log onto as many sites as you like, there is not a statment from VOSA explaining a limit on how many VTS's you can log onto.

If you are logged onto several then you might receive a call but would be very simple to explain.

If you are looking for any freelance or perm work then please contact Rig Automotive Recruit, you will be able to find our details on google
Hi, "Quote",
"This Smart Card is produced and maintained by Siemens Buisness Services as part of MOT Computerisation and remains the property of Siemens Buisness Services at all times". 

So, We are only Custodians of a Smart Card that belongs to Siemens and is policed by VOSA, who have the powers to award you points against you if it is Not on your Person.:P;)

your smart card belongs to you , not the garage you work for .
you can test wherever you like.

hi
as far as i know you should have your own card with your photo and your user id number on it. and you can test at other vts's. i would say unfair dismissle if they sack you unless they consider it moonlighting. the only reason for using a garage's spare card is if you are waiting for a replacement of your own. some more details would be helpful.
