MIL2 – MIL8: To complete the certification requirements, you must submit an experience report form outlining, at a minimum, two years of full-time hands-on experience working on autos or trucks for the MIL2 – MIL8 tests.


Technicians must retest every five years to retain their certification. The Military Tactical Wheeled Vehicle recertification tests (MIL2R – MIL8R) are about half as long as the initial certification tests.
