Until confirmed otherwise, the government have announced that cars, motorcycles and vans that are due their MOT after 30/3/20 will receive a 6 month extension.
However, all vehicles on the road must still be deemed safe and roadworthy. Drivers continue to face prosecution if their vehicle is unsafe to drive.
Al Preston, Co-Founder of WhoCanFixMyCar.com said, “whilst garages stay open to support key workers and critical supply chains, we welcome this clarity from the DVSA given the unprecedented backdrop. This announcement gives the British public peace of mind that they can isolate safely at home without the added pressure of adhering to this mandatory check. Large numbers of our garages continue to operate through this period and are on hand to carry out MOTs, offer advice, and repairs if they are urgent or safety-related.”
