veterans- Armed Forces Covenant

Helping the Automotive Industry Businesses fulfil their Commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

What is the Armed Forces Covenant (AFC)?

The AFC is a pledge to acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.

The Covenant supports serving personnel, service leavers, veterans, and their families and is fulfilled by the different groups that have committed to making a difference.

“To those who proudly protect our nation, who do so with honour, courage, and commitment, the Armed Forces Covenant is the nation’s commitment to you.”

Why signing the Covenant matters to The MOT Group

 By signing the Covenant, we agree to support our reservist and veteran employees.

In turn, we benefit from the wide range of specific and transferable skills developed throughout their military careers. Being a ‘forces friendly’ company, we are flexible to the unique situations of the wider armed forces community. We aim to uphold fair treatment to all involved, including the spouses and cadet force adult volunteers.



What is The MOT Group’s Covenant Partnership Programme?

Now fully committed to the AFC, The MOT Group is working hard to keep both yours and our commitment alive. To stay on track, Armed Forces Veteran Darren Finley is heading up our Covenant Partnership Programme.

“Time to get with the programme!”

In 2019 the DVSA added a new guidance page to the site – Manage your MOT centre

The move marked a significant shift in how DVSA regulates MOT Stations, and now, Vehicle Test Station Managers must have systems, policies and checks in place to meet the strict standards DVSA expects. Heavy sanctions and penalties have been put in place to ensure compliance.

DVSA actively encourages using a “third party” AEC (Authorised Examiner Consultant) to help maintain standards and manage your Vehicle Test station.

Appointing an AEC gets you ‘off the starting grid’ with DVSA as it demonstrates you are proactively managing your MOT business and will help you maintain (or gain) a green RAG rating.
