Dorset has it's first ever female MOT tester.

Victoria Comben carried out her first MOT on Monday morning at TKS Auto's in Weymouth.

She's now one of three hundred others across the country.

Victoria told Wessex FM it's a real honour and strange at the same time.

"It's really really weird to be one of the first here in Dorset. There are probably many other women who would love the job and I have achieved it since wanted to be one, following in the footsteps of my father."

And she has this message for other people wanting to move into her field of work.

"If you can do it and you can get the qualifications, then get out there and do it. People need female MOT testers!"she added.
