    Last test fee review April 2010, special notice 2-10. Static price for over 10 years whilst costs to operate constantly increase, this can’t be right !

    Seems like we’ve heard it all before, it seems to me the biggest improvement the DVSA could make is increasing the MOT test price and making it a mandatory fixed price test. Unfortunately I think that takes an act of parliament so that isn’t gonna happen any time soon. I stopped testing and closed my workshop because my landlord (big multinational) wanted a 55% increase in rent. In the last 10 years my major costs Rent and Insurance doubled but hourly rates and test fees stayed pretty stagnant, accountancy charges up 40% legal costs up 47% I could go on. But no one in authority really gives a f***. the world is run by so called professionals with degrees in arse wiping who think it’s a wheeze to to indulge trades people but not listen and take notice of them. I have lost count of the number of colleagues complaining about the DVSA pricing strategy but has anything happened, will anything happen. It took at least 4 decades of complaint before authorities started to correlate poor maintenance with crashes, which having done the math they still haven’t done anything about it. Ms Loveday Ryder will continue in the legacy of change but the cost of those changes will come from garages testing vehicles until the burden becomes untenable.

    The DVSA is a shambles
    It has nothing to do with vehicle safety
    Any more ,

    it’s all about litigation
    And earning money while the garages
    Are getting paid peanuts and required to
    To invest heavily.
    Mots should be a set cost for everybody
    No discounting and prices put up to
    Go somewhere to covering the extra costs
    Of investment and training required!
    But don’t forget vehicle safety which
    Seems to have taken a back seat…

    Graham, I totally agree but the fact that some will discount the current fee by £25 blows a hole in our case.
    Perhaps the new boss will be able to understand that a price which leaves no profit in issuing a pass may prejudice a testers decisions.

    I’ve been involved in the mot trade for about 25 years and spent 10 years before submitting vehicles for mot’s. Whatever changes have taken place in that time, I’ve seen a downward spiral of events and a civil service who have an answer for everything. I wonder who writes their school books for them.
