What testers need to study for the annual assessment in 2020/21:-

The topics testers need to study depend on whether they test class 1 and 2 vehicles (‘group A’) or class 3, 4, 5 and 7 vehicles (‘group B’).

Some topics are studied by both groups.

In addition to the usual questions from the inspection manuals a number of questions are taken from subjects and information available in the MOT Testers Guide, so testers will need to be familiar with both.
