Automotive consultancy, Fourmative has made available a free monthly routine checklist for MOT site managers.
The checklist covers quality control checks, calibration, monthly site meetings and training.
A Fourmative spokesperson said: “Each of these checkpoints are areas where every site thinks they are doing it right, but can they prove it with documented evidence – that is the question.
“When Fourmative visit an MOT VTS we use a simple check list to begin measuring the station for compliance.
“This checklist is time-served for us and has its origins in the way VOSA used to measure a site when the VE visited on a regular basis.
“We teach, as best practice, that the checklist is to be used monthly by the SM and form a routine to walk the site, mark off all areas where they are compliant, and of course, make effort to correct any that fall short of the standard and would consequently put the site at risk.
“All sites understand their RAG rating, it’s the topic of much conversation as we travel the UK, but making efforts to minimise risk and keep you GREEN, is part of our role as the AEC working alongside you.”
