The annual training now includes updates to testing standards since the introduction of EU Directive 2014/45, the introduction section of MOT tester manual, highlighted areas of concern including tyres, lighting, driver’s view, suspension and brakes, plus use of the MOT testing service to improve test quality information.
The assessment’s pass mark remains at 70 per cent.
