Department for Transport advised new re-assessment time lines

Scenarios which detail the time period of a certified re-assessment and the subsequent impact on the expiry date of the re-assessed unit:

  • RA certified more than 48 months before current expiry = certificated date + 5 years
  • RA certified between 48 months & 12 months before current expiry = certification date + 6 years
  • RA certified in the 12 months prior to current expiry date = expiry date + 5 years
  • Valid RA certified after current expiry date = certification date + 5 years (it is now possible to apply up to 5 years after current expiry date).

Notification of system downtime

Due to new legislation, SWQR have undergone a system change to allow all applications for England to be processed under the new format.

Please note that to implement these changes, SWQR’s current system will be going off-line temporarily. The date(s) for this downtime will be notified on our website shortly. An e-mail will also be sent to all training providers. This means that there may be a slight delay to our normal application processing times. We kindly ask for your patience during this period and will endeavor to resume normal service as soon as possible.
