Setting up an MOT bay is much more than just VT01 form filling.

This may involve undertaking planning applications, managing various contractors throughout the process - far more than normally on offer from an equipment manfacturer and because we include these services as standard to our own customers, we are also able to offer these services to individuals who may be struggling with their own application. The services include:
The VT01 form is an application which tells the DVSA information about who is applying to operate an MOT station i.e an individual, partnership, company and that how the proposed MOT bay will meet the dimensional, reporting and viewing requirements for authorisation. As part of the application process external evidence is required from Local Council's and solicitors and this process of obtaining this information can become time consuming for the layman to undertake when, in all likelyhood, they will only undertake one such project in the lifetime of their business.
As part of the VT01 application the results of a detailed site survey are required to produce drawings and layout of the proposal so that the DVSA are able to visualise the proposal and make comment accordingly. The specific requirements related to these drawings are published in the public domain, but the DVSA will reject any drawing which does not meet their own requirements and so employing GETECH to undertake such a survey to produce both the drawing required for the VT01 application and then the corresponding approved civil and electrical requirement can eliminate the changes of your application bouncing back and fore, or the risk of civil or electrical errors which result in a failure to authorise.
