MOT Government Crackdown

This is another thing that makes my blood boil. Dodgy MOT testers and MOT garages. Since DVSA computerisation, than actual physical visits by the MOT inspectors have decreased depending on your colour band. Hence. from when the traffic light system of points came into operation. This means that garages and MOT testing stations have a colour allotted to them depending on the operational or disciplinary when inspected by the DVSA staff. The list is as follows-Green=Low risk operator…..Amber=Medium risk operator…..Red=High risk operator…..grey=Unknown Operator.

Therefore the colour reference of our MOT testing station is green. For this reason, we will have less visits from the DVSA inspectors. The red MOT testing stations will have more visits because of there poorer status. This crackdown is very refreshing to the let’s say more honest garages.
