CardsSafe for Car Dealerships and MOT Test Centres
There are over 50,000 Nominated Testers and Authorised Examiners in the UK
In 2016, the DVSA introduced new MOT Security Cards. It is obligatory for all Nominated Testers and Authorised Examiners to keep their individual MOT Security card secure. There are well over 50,000 Nominated Testers and Authorised Examiners in the UK, and they are all responsible for the safekeeping of their own MOT Security Card.
The CardsSafe system is specifically designed to securely retain customer credit, debit and ID cards while they test drive a vehicle, or to protect MOT Security Cards for Nominated Testers (NT) and Authorised Examiners (AE).
Complying with the DVSA’s strict guidelines for security, the CardsSafe system is helping MOT Test Centres to stay and safe and avoid penalty points by protecting the MOT Security card.
A new way to keep MOT Security cards secure
DVSA can inspect any Vehicle Testing Station (VTS) at any time to ensure that MOT Security Cards are kept in a secure manner. These cards need to be stored in an easily accessible but secure location to prevent theft, loss, damage, identity fraud, malpractice and unauthorised access to the MOT Computer.
DVSA is understandably focused on keeping access to the MOT computer secure at all times. During announced or unannounced visits by DVSA, if the cards are found in insecure places such as toolboxes, unlocked desk drawers or left lying on a desk, disciplinary points can be given against both the NT and in some circumstances against the Authorised Examiner as well.
CardsSafe is the solution!
CardsSafe is affordable, easy to install and easy to use. The unit comes with ten boxes, each of which has a unique key so every NT has their own personal key. If any key is lost or damaged it will be replaced free of charge within 48 hours and meanwhile, the station manager will be able to open the box with a master key.
With CardsSafe each MOT security card is protected and stored with a minimum risk of damage, loss or misuse.
For MOT Test Centres, CardsSafe can help to comply with DVSA strict guidelines when it comes to MOT Security Cards. According to MOT Learning Services storing your MOT Security Cards in a CardsSafe unit as “the best system we have ever come across”.
