What are the Requirements to Become an MOT Centre?

confusedUpon doing our usual online checks, we discovered the following search question from within Google which gave the lead for this blog post: What are the Requirements to Become an MOT Centre?

Well, to answer this question correctly it must be expanded. Part 1 of the response is blogged here…

From an owner/operator perspective it is fairly straightforward – you must not have been bankrupt or have any unspent criminal convictions for acts of violence or intimidation.

A key point to note is “unspent” meaning that all is not lost if at some point you have the subject of a criminal conviction. However a note to be aware of. If you are operating a partnership business or limited company then every individual named as part of that arrangement (both or all partners / all individuals named at companies house) must meet the non-bankrupt and non-convicted criteria for the overall application to be approved. If any individual involved does not meet this criteria the MUST declare it on the VT01 application – it is then down to the local vehicle examiner to consider the application for approval or rejection given this information.

Moving beyond the requirements of the individuals / company to operate the station there is also the spatial requirements of the premises themselves which will be covered in another blog post.
