Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Success Story

 
The MOT testing service is one of these large transactional services. Every week there are close to 1 million MOTs performed in garages all over the country, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The test results are an important part of a related service: paying car tax. Without a valid MOT, you cannot tax your car.

The DVSA have recently moved their MOT service to the Cloud – in this case using Amazon Web Services AWS – to build a scaled-out highly available platform, extensively test and transition the MOT testing service in 10 weeks.
