DVSA Changes to Test Classes 3 or 5

Class 5

DVSA recently announced changes that will affect MOT testers wishing to test classes 3 or 5.

In order to test vehicle classes 3 or 5, MOT testers must have completed the class 4 and 7 MOT qualification and a VT8 demonstration test.

The new changes, effective from 14th August 2017 mean that testers will need to complete additional training and perform a demonstration test on a class 3 or 5 vehicle in front of a DVSA representative.

For existing MOT testers (class 4 and 7), this will involve studying:

  1. Training on classes 3 and 5
  2. A VT8 demonstration test on the vehicle class you want to test. If you want to be able to test both classes 3 and 5, you will be required to do a VT8 demonstration on both classes.

For those wishing to become an MOT tester in classes 3 or 5, this will involve studying:

  1. A relevant level 3 qualification or accreditation
  2. A level 2 award in MOT testing (classes 4 and 7)
  3. A class 4 VT8 demonstration test with questions covering class 7
  4. Training on classes 3 or 5
  5. A VT8 demonstration test on the vehicle class you want to test. If you want to be able to test both classes 3 and 5, you will be required to do a VT8 demonstration on both classes.

For existing MOT testers (class 1 and 2), this will involve studying:

  1. A level 2 award in MOT testing (classes 4 and 7)
  2. A class 4 VT8 demonstration test with questions covering class 7
  3. Training on classes 3 or 5
  4. A VT8 demonstration test on the vehicle class you want to test. If you want to be able to test both classes 3 and 5, you will be required to do a VT8 demonstration on both classes.
