Book Your Course

Hybrid and Electric vehicles are becoming more and more popular, but there are very few mechanics who have the necessary training to work on them.

This is because Hybrid and Electric vehicles are a relatively new technology, and most mechanics have not had the chance to learn about them yet.

If you’re qualified to work on EV’s and Hybrids in the UK, your certificate will be accepted by all garages.

However, there are a few exceptions to this rule.

Some workshops may not be able to accommodate EV’s and Hybrids.

However, it is always good to have the qualification in place, especially with the possible new rules that the DVSA may impose.

The Hybrid and Electrical Certificate is a lifetime qualification.

With the development of Electric vehicles (EVs) and Hybrid vehicles increasing, we recommend that you obtain CPD (continuing professional development) training in this area annually.

On completion of MTC Hybrid and Electrical Training, the certificate we provide you with is issued by the Skills and Education Group, which is a recognised qualification.

MTC are an authorised Training Centre by the Skills and Education Group to teach these qualifications.

Insurance Companies Refusing to Insure Garages

Many insurance companies are now refusing to insure garages if they do not have at least one mechanic with Hybrid or Electric vehicle training.

It has become apparent that many insurance companies are refusing to insure garages if the mechanics working there do not have this specific type of training.

This is causing a lot of problems for garage owners.

This is not the only problem that garages will start facing.

It has been said that, the DVSA may be making some changes that will be coming into place very soon, with regards to MOT testers, testing Hybrid and Electric Vehicles.

There has been many technicians suffering injuries whilst testing Hybrid and Electric Vehicles.

MOT Testers have got hurt whilst these types of vehicles are on the ramp, this is due to when the Electric vehicles battery runs low and it automatically starts up, causing MOT Testers to get hurt.

Due to health and safety reasons we truly believe that all MOT testers will need at least a Level 1 Hybrid and Electrical Vehicle Training to carry out MOT’s on theses types of vehicles. 

There are now over 500,000 zero and ultra-low emission vehicles on the UK road and the market for zero emission cars is increasing day by day.

We also believe that the DVSA will possibly roll out the new rules within the next six months, because of the amount of MOT testers suffering injuries due to the health and safety of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles.
