Welcome to Chiltern Development Training Ltd

We have a range of training courses which can be delivered at our training centre in Chesham, at your premises and through our online platform.
For many years we have built our reputation by delivering quality driver training courses to private and public organisations as well as many schools, colleges and individuals.

You're in the right place

The *only Bucks based MOT training centre to offer Level 2 MOT Tester Training – Class 4&7, Level 3 MOT Manager Training and Annual Training and Assessment for current testers. (* based on IMI/DVSA websites)

To support you as much as we can during this time we are remaining open for:

MOT Tester Annual CPD training and assessment online courses

(In line with government guidelines all face to face training is cancelled for now.)

We will also be providing regular updates, so you have the most up to date information available to allow you to make informed decisions.

We know everyone agrees, and it’s why the government continues to enforce the need for a valid MOT certificate, except in exceptional circumstances; continued vehicle safety is paramount.

Do all you can to get this message out to your customers. And remember to provide reassurance to them that you’re adhering to the strictest of safety guidelines. Reassure them your primary concern is to ensure not only the safety of their vehicle but their safety when passing their car to you for the necessary checks.

Provided we all do what health officials and the government advise we will remain well.

COVID-19 virus update

First we of course, hope everyone remains well during this uncertain time.

If you’ve booked, or are planning to book a course with us we can reassure you we are open and adhering to all WHO and UK Government Guidelines to ensure our clients are safe when with us: and scheduled courses will continue.

However, if you’ve recently returned from a high-risk infection location (defined by WHO) or are feeling unwell, please do contact us to reschedule the course at a later date.

Additional reassurance:

MOT Tester Courses are held with no more than four in the class, but we can also arrange for 1:1 sessions (as with all 1:1 sessions this is charged at a slightly higher rate)

Courses available

The following courses are available with CDT to help you exceed as an MOT Tester or Manager

Our BMW/MINI team have invested in our MOT managers by providing them the IMI level 3 Award in MOT Test Centre Management through Chiltern Development. Russell and Karena delivered a well structured and professionally presented course, backed up by their excellent knowledge of the subject and they were flexible with location (even traveling to us).

CDT’s professionalism has been shown throughout and we decided to use their onsite support facility for our managers on a 1:1 basis. Feedback from our MOT managers was that the visit was very useful as a way to refresh their knowledge, go over some scheme changes and to be assured that we are on the right track. 

The advice and help given has been first class, we will be repeating this process in the future to keep all of our MOT managers up to date with their knowledge and to keep our MOT scheme compliance in great order. 

Many thanks to Russell and Karena for all their hard work and support. 

Best Regards
