As we prepare to wave goodbye to the end of the financial and compliance year at the end of the month and head towards the new training year, we are pleased to announce that the DVSA has now released the training topics for the coming year, allowing us to get ahead with our preparation.
As always, we have a dedicated web page where you can discover all the topics and subcategories in detail. We also have a free printable PDF of the syllabus if you wish to display these on your work noticeboard.
Our annual training and assessment provision remains the same, meeting and exceeding DVSA requirements. We offer:
> 3 hours of annual training covering the annual training syllabus
> 3 hours of CPD on any related topics
> Book online and take the exam through either ABC or IMI, including immediate resits if needed
> A free mock exam to help you feel best prepared, which you can take as many times as you need.
The deadline for annual training and assessment is 23:59 on 31st March 2024. The format of the assessment remains largely unchanged from previous years.
> The assessment pass mark will be 80%
> The assessment will be made up of 30 multiple-choice questions across the syllabus topics
> The assessment will be an open-book exam taking a maximum of one hour
The topics covered in this year’s training include:
> Registering a vehicle for a test
> Use of equipment
> Test procedures
> Use of the relevant MOT inspection manual for the class of vehicle
> Example subjects
When broken into subcategories, they number 35 different subcategories for class 1 and 2 vehicles and 43 different subcategories for class 4 and 7 vehicles. It’s tough to see how to cover all of that comprehensively in just three hours of training. That’s what we are here for.
> Free and paid training resources to help you fulfil your training requirements
> Curated, engaging content in bite-sized video format which is easy to digest
> New, relevant and valuable CPD content is released every month for TRIBE members
> Free, unlimited ‘mock’ exam sits to build confidence ahead of the real exam
At MOT Juice, we carefully curate our content to cover the complete syllabus in three hours of compulsory annual training, one of which we give you for FREE. We then go deeper into these topics in our monthly CPD training (which you can also try for free). Our CPD content is, as much as possible, based on real-life questions submitted by real-life testers – members of our TRIBE. We answer these questions, weaving in annual training themes to make highly relatable and targeted content you don’t want to miss out on.
The best way to fulfil your DVSA training requirements is to follow along with all of Juice’s training content. Testers who do this feel best prepared for the annual assessment towards the end of the year. More importantly, they find the training is beneficial in deepening their understanding of best practices within the industry. Because each month’s time commitment is minimal, testers can almost effortlessly meet their annual obligations. The little and often approach to training reduces any sense of overwhelm and actively combats procrastination.
Undertaking training as part of an active industry community introduces support into the training process and accountability, especially if teammates or colleagues work through the same content. Being part of a wider community reduces feelings of isolation and stress, making it much easier to fulfil your responsibilities.
MOT Juice is one of the UK’s largest MOT training providers. We offer comprehensive training that makes it easy to meet your training obligations and develop a broader understanding of the industry. Join an active community of testers and make training fun and valuable again rather than a box-ticking exercise. Sign up for a juice training account and take the stress out of your compliance responsibilities.
