Light Vehicle Inspection Technician

Accreditation

 

 

 

Do you wish to become an MOT tester but do not have the necessary entry qualifications? If so, then the IMI Light Vehicle Inspection Technician Accreditation could be for you.

IMI Accreditation is accepted by the DVSA as an alternative to achievement of a Level 3 Light Vehicle qualification for entry on to the MOT Tester qualification.
  
Upon completion, your IMI accreditation is valid for 3 years and you will be included on the IMI Professional Register. This is a public-facing register to showcase individuals working in the motor industry, who have been recognised for their experience, professionalism and commitment to ethical working practices.

There will be no requirement for re-accreditation if you go on to complete your IMI Level 2 Award in MOT testing (classes 4 & 7)

As an Inspection Technician you must be able to work unsupervised – ideally, you should be in full time employment with at least 3 years experience (4 years if you wish to become an MOT tester) to ensure you are familiar with the techniques for vehicle servicing, inspection and system(s) diagnosis.

There are 6 practical assessments for this route and an online exam consisting of two separate assessments, one containing 30 questions and a second containing 10 question. The assessments are as follows, please click on the links to see the details.

We offer three routes to gaining this qualification.
 
Route 1 - Assessment Only
 
If you feel that you have the required level of knowledge and skill, you can choose to do the assessment only route.  We offer this route on a one to one basis and it will take a full day to complete.
 
Route 2 - Modular Based Training
 
If you feel that you might need some support for some or all of the modules, we can offer this training route.  Each module will be covered on a single day and all modules including final assessment must be completed within 12 months from registration.
You will receive a copy of Tom Denton's 4th edition Advanced Automotive Fault Diagnosis book which you can use in the intervening period to study and practice your knowledge and skills. 
Your assessments will take place on a single day within the 12 month period. 
This route offers the most cost effective option as you only need to attend training on those areas identified.  We believe this route would be particularly suited to people working within the tyre and fast fit sector, where access to the required work areas may be limited.
 
Route 3 - 5 Day Training and Assessment.
 
This route is best suited to experienced technicians who might need some training input prior to assessment.  The assessments will take place over a 5 day period with the online assessment taking place mid week to allow for any re-sits that may be necessary.  You will receive a copy of Tom Denton's 4th edition Advanced Automotive Fault Diagnosis book which you can use in the intervening period to study and practice your knowledge and skills.prior to attending the course.
