Being investigated and receiving a disciplinary letter for your conduct concerning MOT testing can be extremely stressful, our road transport solicitors understand this. We have a team that operates on a nationwide basis and can assist you as nominated testers (NT) and authorised examiners (AE) facing potential disciplinary action.
Part of the DVSA’s remit is to investigate those responsible for providing MOT tests. Disciplinary cases for nominated testers and authorised examiners are handled by a case review team. Investigations can arise if a member of the public has reported a centre or garage. However, there are other scenarios which may lead to an investigation, including:
- A vehicle being examined by the DVSA that has recently been passed which is subsequently examined and considered defective
- A mystery shopper being sent and the test observed
- A vehicle sent for test with defects that are not identified by the tester
- Undercover surveillance of a site
Our specialist solicitors have the knowledge and experience to assist you if you are being investigated, call us on 01616 966 229 or complete our online enquiry form and we will contact you directly.
