 PCV / PSV Inspection Training

Vehicle Inspection and Training Services deliver PCV inspection courses for your workshop technical staff either at our training venue in Astwood Bank or at your premises. The course is perfect for delegates who are heavily involved in the maintenance and preparation of vehicles for annual test or their safety inspections.

                       By training your staff you can benefit from: 

  • Correctly identifying defects against annual test fail criteria
  • Reducing your maintenance costs through correct wear and tear evaluation
  • Increasing the confidence that your company runs vehicles safely, legally and reliably; and
  • Minimising the failures at annual checks and on the roadside

The courses are based on the DVSA annual testing manual and real time experience of vehicle testing and defects analysis. The course offers both classroom and practical based exercises and assessments.

Our trainers are ex VOSA/DVSA and verified to be able to deliver the courses. Our trainers are also IRTEC qualified.
