What is TQI and why does it affect me?

TQI, or Test Quality Information, is the data which the DVSA collect for each MOT tester and compare them against the national average for a range of failure categories.

The need for further training can be identified by analysis of TQI. MOT centre managers and AEs can also use this information to help monitor and improve the standard of testing at their site(s).

The DVSAs vehicle examiners will look at this information before they visit a VTS. During a site assessment, they’ll look for evidence of any action taken by AEs where they find unusual differences in the data.

How do I deal with TQI?

All testers AEs and AEDMs are required to show that they are regularly reviewing, understanding and acting on their TQI data.

How AEs can use this (TQI) information

TQI will help you manage the quality of testing at your facility. How you use it will depend on how you manage the site, its size and number of staff, etc.

You should review this information regularly and look into any unusual differences in the data; documenting the outcome of any investigation you’ve undertaken and what action you took. An example could be if a tester’s fail rate for a component category is 20% and the national failure rate is 8%.

In this case, you could organise quality control checks on failed tests where the tester has failed components within that category. You could check the tester’s understanding of the pass/fail criteria then record your findings.

It’s important to show that you’re reviewing, understanding and acting on the information found on the system.

How does MOT Juice help me review TQI?

The AE of an MOT centre must grant MOT Juice the AEC (Authorised Examiner Consultant) role for their business.

This allows MOT Juice to download and perform a TQI Analysis of the data with our unique algorithms.  Each tester can view their analysis within their MOT Juice account.

Where there is a variance to national average it will be highlighted.

Review of the highlighted data must be completed by the tester. Where appropriate they should record notes as to why it may be at variance. Action that may be necessary to address variances should also be recorded and completed.

MOT Juice will allow you to oversee this whole process at management level with the purpose of improving testing standards.

What do I achieve?

By recording your TQI data each month with MOT Juice, you’re actively fulfilling a DVSA requirement. Above all when the VE comes to inspect the site and asks ‘can you show me how you are reviewing your TQI regularly?’, you can load up your MOT Juice account and prove you are.
