Hi thanks for the info, I found a website called premier m.o.t and it says they will sponsor you to become an m.o.t tester?

You need to be put forward by a testing station, also you need train so you will defo need to be working or have a good relationship with a mot station.

Im an apprentice in college 1 day aweek, and im just finishing of my Level 2 now at college and hopefully doing my level 3 next year.

What i would like to know is how to become an m.o.t tester when the garage you work for doesnt do m.o.t testing?

Kind Regards Luke Robinson


Hi Luke,

see the link for qualifications and training to become an mot tester.

http://www.transportoffice.gov.uk/crt/doitonline/bl/mottestingmanualsandguides/mottestingmanualsandguides.htm

Within that guide is all the necessary information you require, but from your thread I think you will need to find another job in a testing station because you must have an Authorised Examiner, that is a person who manages/owns a test station to sponsor you as a nominated tester.

Good luck.:)
