MoT Extension to End on 1 August

In the News

*Worth getting it done if due as not worth the risk*

Mandatory MoT testing for all cars, vans and motorcycles in England, Scotland and Wales is being reintroduced on 1 August, the Government has confirmed.

The announcement marks the end of the six month MoT extension, which was introduced on 30 March to encourage drivers to stay at home and halt the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus.

Drivers with an MoT due before 1 August will continue to receive a six-month exemption from testing, but their vehicle must be properly maintained and kept in a roadworthy condition. Failure to do so will leave drivers liable to a maximum fine of £2500, a driving ban or three penalty points for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition.

I don’t see why this is necessary because most garages have been open this whole time... my partners needed his car fixed 3 times during lockdown and has had it done.. MOTs only take an hour and you dont need to come into contact with anyone, they should just be properly sanitising everything they touch in your car

Lots of independent garages have been open throughout and have offered Mot's throughout if you wanted one , but if people were popping out to take their car for a routine MOT during lockdown that would have gone against the original "Stay at Home message" so to off set it for a while did make sense.

As Mango4 says sarahgreen15 MOTs were not deemed a necessity during lockdown, also many shielding, self-isolating etc were & still are unable to visit garage. Good point about sanitation as had work done on mine & did not see that been done
