Important information concerning the IMI L2 Award in MOT Testing

For classes 4 and 7 – online assessment

In readiness for the EU Directive 2014/45 and the new MOT Inspection Manual coming into effect on 20th May 2018, the IMI L2 Award in MOT Testing (classes 4 and 7) has now been amended to reflect the changes.  Although the qualification structure and GLH remain unchanged, the content of the online assessment has been changed in line with the new manual.

As a result, centres with live candidates on this qualification will now see two online assessments (as per screenshot) – old and new.  It is at the discretion of the centre as to which test they put candidates registered before 20th April 2018 through, however for those registered after this date they will on;y be eligible for the new assessment. It is extremely important that candidates choose only one and ensure candidates are using the correct manual to gather the information in accordance with the test selected.  

For example if they opt for:

  • OLD - MOTLV1Q - they must use the MOT inspection manual for class 3, 4, 5 and 7 vehicles (to 19 May 2018)
  • NEW - MOTLV1Q-18 - they must use the MOT inspection manual for class 3, 4, 5 and 7 vehicles (from 20 May 2018)

Please note that centres with candidates completing the ‘OLD’ assessment will need to contact IMI Centre Admin Support prior to certification to ensure a claim can be made.
