Ways to get your MOT Training Career back on track after a tough 2020/21

We have all experienced unexpected hardships in the last year and have had to adjust to a new way of life. Perhaps your bedroom has turned into an office? Due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), MOT training providers in the UK are experiencing unprecedented interruptions, necessitating immediate action to guarantee that learning can continue in some form. In business and society as a whole, there has been unprecedented law change due to lockdown. Our industry's regulation, in particular, has been unlike anything we've ever seen before. While some individuals are excited to meet their friends and family members, many of us are nervous.

Post Pandemic things to consider

• Returning to our old routines will feel strange and cause us to feel scared, worried, irritated, angry, or nervous.
• It will take time to adjust, and the amount of time that each of us requires will be different.
• Don’t expect that everything will go back to just how it was before. It is unrealistically high, and it will only lead to disappointment, irritation, and perhaps wrath.
• At the MOT training centres, ignore the pressures from those who are moving at a faster speed in getting MOT Certifications.
• Avoid comparing, and if something doesn't work the first time, try to learn from your mistakes and try again.
• Organise all MOT Training logs and save them in a digital format.
