The MOT Testing Guide Requirements for Authorisation D Issue Date March 2019 42 criteria. 3 The applicant may appeal against the intention to refuse to Authorise or Designate. Any appeal must be made in writing to the DVSA Office that issued the notice and be received within 14 working days from the date of the notification of the intention. An informal hearing maybe requested in accordance with the Informal Hearing Notes for Guidance and Code of Practice issued with the notice. 4 If at the end of this appeal period no such appeal has been received DVSA will write to the applicant confirming the refusal to Authorise. Note: If an application is from an entity or involves individuals that have been subject to cessation for disciplinary reasons, that application will not normally be considered until shortly before the cessation period expires. As such there can be no intent to refuse until the cessation period has expired. 5 If at anytime in the application process the applicant considers he cannot, or refuses to, meet the conditions he may give written notice to this effect to DVSA. On receipt of the applicant’s letter DVSA will confirm intent to refuse authorisation. 6.
