For what its worth I think now is a great time to get NT training, as you will get the new info straight from the trainer, most of us will have to learn from the dvd & book :)
Good luck :)


An additional option is to attend a "seminar",;) where there Will be vosa advisors making a presentation about the changes to the requirements, with a Q&A session to follow.;) 

spellin, lol;)

Thankyou for your advice i'm being sponsored by a vts so i have my work cut out lol i've been a mechanic for nine years now so i'm pretty clued up checking  cars over etc but it seems the RFR are very in depth, and i think i'm doing it at a awkward time as the tests are changing from jan :?

Welcome to the forum :)
Do you have a vts device at your place ? if so use the SPARE smart card to do the training exercises.
Next try to read the inspection manual http://www.transportoffice.gov.uk/crt/doitonline/bl/mottestingmanualsandguides/mottestingmanualsandguides.htm little and often works best for me and try to get into "tester mode" frame of mind.
Good luck

I've been a car mechanic for 9 years now and ive passed all my level 3 exams, my dream has allways been to get my mot ticket.

i'm a little nervous but very excited :)

Any advice would be very appreciated

Thankyou
