DVSA has changed the way that an MOT station is regulated, with the requirement to complete self-checks becoming more prevalent. Gone are the days when the local DVSA employee would visit every shop to check on process, standards and calibration.
Today the modern MOT station must adhere to strict standards and failures could result in the loss of licence to conduct MOT’s and cost the business dearly.
What it is
The Fourmative MOT Auditor will visit your premises for an initial 1-day consultation. They will conduct an Audit to benchmark you against a predefined set of standards.
More than 100 areas will be checked and a report will be created with detailed findings, photographs and timed action plans for follow up and measurement. The Audit will cover:
