We will be pleased to speak to you and give you our best attention at all times.

We believe that prevention is better than cure when it comes to DVSA’s disciplinary procedures.  By providing AE’s and NT’s with continuous support and advice on all aspects of MOT testing we can help you achieve full compliance with DVSA’s requirements thereby avoiding their formal disciplinary procedures, which could lead to the cessation of your MOT authorization to examine motor vehicles or your approval to test them.
