Identity and security checks for authorised examiners have changed

From today (1 November 2019), anyone who becomes an authorised examiner or authorised examiner designated manager will need to have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check carried out.
This is the basic DBS check that verifies the applicant’s identity and will show any unspent convictions.
You won’t have to do anything if you’re already authorised. We’ll only request that you submit a DBS check for any additions or changes to your authorisation, or possibly as part of an appeal against any disciplinary action that has been taken against you.
This procedure replaces the counter-signing of driving licences or passports which used to be carried out to check credentials.
We’ve done this to protect the integrity of the MOT and to simplify the process for applicants.
