DVSA issues MOT guidance on alternatively fuelled cars as new MOT training year starts
The DVSA has published guidance on what MOT testers need to know about how hybrid, electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles work, and what to do when inspecting these vehicles.

A new guide covering the new vehicle technologies that testers may come across during the MOT has been published by the DVSA as the new MOT annual training year gets underway.

The MOT annual training syllabus for the 2018/19 covers the safe testing of alternatively fuelled vehicles, including; hybrid, electric and hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicles.

DVSA guidance on hybrid, electric and hydrogen fuel cell systems covers an overview of new technologies and the things testers should be aware of when inspecting these vehicles.

The latest training and assessment also requires a comprehensive understanding of the revised MOT inspection manual which comes into force on May 20.

The syllabus also includes test quality information and data protection.

Pass mark increase

The pass mark for MOT assessment has been increased to 70 per cent.

Advising test stations on the latest syllabus, the Independent Garage Association said: “Because the changes will affect every tester, on every MOT test carried out – and will do so by the end of May, we are advising all testers to consider their 2018/19 Annual Training early.

“As the experts in this field who work closely with the DVSA, we can support your testers with thorough training to help them with the spike in difficulty this year.”
