The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has reminded MOT testers of the imminent changes to DBS check requirements.

From 8 January 2024, a DBS check must be submitted for testers returning after a disciplinary period of 28 days or after being lapsed or suspended. This includes the non-completion of the annual assessment.

Currently, a DBS check is required for new testers, a tester returning after a two- to five-year cessation, or a tester returning after a five-year gap.

The DVSA is also changing the way it receives a DBS check. From 8 January, testers will need to provide a proof of a DBS check when they request a demonstration test. The form will include the DBS consent code to allow the DVSA to view a certification.

Alternatively, the certificated can be posted to the DVSA, something that’s mandatory for Scottish DBS checks.
