MOT Site Visits

If you’re involved in running an MOT centre, you must make sure MOT tests meet the standards set out by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).

To do this, you should:

  • put management systems in place to run your business

  • check and assess MOT test standards using policies and quality checks

  • manage your MOT testers, including recruiting suitable testers and making sure they take regular training

  • maintain and monitor your premises and equipment to keep it safe

  • understand your MOT centre’s risk rating

How you manage your MOT centre will depend on the size of your business and what works best for you. You can use different methods, as long as they’re effective.

There are penalties for failing to meet the required standards. The penalties depend on how serious the issues are.

DVSA can ban you from running an MOT centre for up to 5 years in the most serious cases of you failing to meet the required standards.
