I was in exactly the same position and found a company called Premier MOT, they got me ATA accredited and testing within 7 weeks. It's not just the neccessary MOT requirements but their course has opened my eyes to all other parts of being a good technician, I can now competently carry out electrical fault finding and diagnosis, sttering suspension, braking systems and much more. And being ATA accredited, I am on the IMI approved technicians listing. Google premiermot and see what they offer, I would recommend them every time, or even facebook them they have centres in liverpool and Essex.

It could cost a great deal more than that! with what I have read, Vosa will Accept an ATA "Diagnostic Technician" Accreditation, which would cost an absolute fortune!! surely the ATA "Service Maintenance Technician" Accreditation., is where it should be assesed/accepted at, considering, We are only, quote, "taking a mere snapshot" of the vehicles condition, at the time of the Inspection??;)

Automotive Technician Accreditation (ATA) is a national voluntary scheme which tests the current competence of individuals working in the retail motor industry. By completing this course you will be exempt from having to take the NTTA assessment as the ATA qualification is now acceptable under the requirements of VOSA (Vehicle and Operator Services Agency) and the Ministry of Transport for MOT testing

i had a guy who sat his third test and passed. He only just failed the 2nd test and i was advised to ring my local vosa centre which i did, if memory serves me right, i was then advised to send in a letter with his failure and then the manager would make a decision to see if he could sit a third and fortunately for me they let him sit the third test.

Give your local vosa a ring and see what they say, hope this helps.
