DBS Checks for MOT Testers

From the 8th of January 2024, DBS checks for MOT testers are developing. The new rules must be followed to stay compliant. 


When must you submit a basic DBS check?

If you are an MOT tester, you are required to submit an application for a basic DBS check in the following cases:

  • You are a new tester
  • You are an existing tester who is increasing your test group (A or B)
  • You are coming back to testing after receiving a 28-day disciplinary or cessation of 2 or 5 years
  • You are returning to testing after being suspended or lapsed (being suspended for not completing your annual assessment in the required time frame is included in this)

Important note: The DBS check has to be actioned a maximum of 3 months before the demonstration test. Otherwise, it will not be valid.

We are a recognised umbrella body (Online DBS Checks is a division of Eurocom C.I.) for the Disclosure and Barring Service.

As a result, you can get the certificate you need quickly while having peace of mind that your data is protected.

After you have received your DBS certificate

When you have your DBS certificate, you can let DVSA know by providing the government agency with a consent check code (you can do this when you fill out the MOT tester demonstration test form). If the check comes back not clear or you didn’t receive the code, you have to make a copy of the certificate and send it via post along with your MOT testing service user ID.
