Thanks bimmer, I had seen the 2012 manual, and had that as an option, but forgot to mention it in my previous post.

I'll take a look at those best pratice guides mentioned in the SN's, thanks.

Hi Martins,

Thankyou for the reply, as I said earlier they can't easily be downloaded, unless of course you know where they are available as a download, and because of this they can't easily be printed out, otherwise I would.

If you look here they are online versions only, whilst I could go through and print each page one at a time, I'd hate to think how long it would take.

PS Anyway to make this forum display in the opposite order, as thats what I'm used to, ie first post first, rather than most recent post first. I know some forums have the option to change the display order, but I can't seem to find it on here.

There is no reason you shouldn't be able to print these documents out on your own printer.

Hi, we're in the process of setting up an MOT bay in our existing workshop.

I've got my AEDM course in a couple of weeks and would like to buy a printed version of the MOT Testing Guide, also the manual for Class 4, 5 & 7 vehicles.

But I've drawn a complete blank, Vosa (03001 239000) say they are only available on line, my local office who's dealing with our application says they should be available to buy, but doesn't know where, so far I've drawn a complete blank.

Whilst I can read them on the internet, I would prefer a printed version for learning, online is ok for checking something but not for in depth reading.

They are not PDF either, so I can't even easily download and print them, and this they say is progress.

Clicky for link to manauls.

So any idea where I can purchase these?
