Please Note: this qualification has been updated to reflect the changes made in the 2017 code of practice for the categorisation of motor vehicle salvage

Who is it suitable for?

This qualification is aimed at experienced technicians in either Vehicle Body and Paint or Vehicle Maintenance and Repair. Therefore a typical learner will be 18 years plus, working in industry and will have at least a Level 2 Automotive Technical Qualification and/or a Level 2 Apprenticeship.


Vehicle Damage Assessors work closely with customers and vehicle repair specialists to:

  • appraise vehicle damage
  • assess vehicle repair methods 
  • estimate costs (including vehicle salvage categorisation, appraising & valuing vehicles for pre accident condition)


For some learners this qualification could prepare them for progression to further learning and training. For others, this qualification could also provide a useful recognition of their practical skills and knowledge, to aid their step from one job role to another.


The knowledge component of this qualification is also independently assessed via online testing. The tests are mapped to each knowledge unit's learning outcomes and assessment criteria to ensure coverage. These tests are marked electronically by IMI.
