Get ready, the MOT training and assessment deadline is looming

MOT 2021

It’s that time again, MOT testers need to keep their knowledge up to date and stay compliant. But don’t worry, the IMI makes the process simple.

It’s been a year like no other, and MOT testers have been at the eye of the storm, helping keep people on the road throughout the pandemic. It’s a service that needs to continue, and it’s that time of the year where you need to get ready to complete your annual MOT training and assessment.

Generally, the requirements remain the same; you need to complete at least three hours of training, make sure you keep a record of what you do and take the assessment. One thing that is different is the score needed to pass the assessment, which is now 80% or above.

Successfully completing your training will enable you to carry out your daily duties in a safe way, while offering reassurance to customers and keeping their vehicles safely on the road.

We understand it can be a task that’s sometimes gets lost beneath the plethora of work that needs to be done on a daily basis, which is why the IMI is here to make sure the process is as hassle free as possible.

As simple as 1,2,3

Keeping your knowledge up to date so you can stay compliant is easy, with three options available:

  • Training purchase only (£36 + VAT)
  • Assessment purchase only (£34 + VAT)
  • A combined purchase of both the training and assessment (£60 + VAT)

We would encourage you to purchase the combined package as it will enhance your chances of passing, but remember that with both the combined package or assessment only you will receive 2 free attempts at the assessment.

We also want to remind you that when you retrain with us you receive FREE IMI membership (*for a limited time) whilst remaining part of a growing community of automotive professionals with access to a range of industry insights, resources and advice.

Everything you need can be found on the IMI’s MOT training pages, your one-stop shop for training. And, if you need a refresher on the requirements, check out the Government’s MOT tester training and annual assessments information.
