A temporary exemption from MOT testing will enable vital services to continue, frontline workers to get to work, and people to get essential food and medicine.
Vehicle owners will be granted a 6-month exemption from MOT testing, enabling them to continue to travel to work where this absolutely cannot be done from home, or shop for necessities.
All cars, vans and motorcycles which usually would require an MOT test will be exempted from needing a test from 30 March 2020. However, vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition and please be aware that drivers can be prosecuted if their vehicle is unsafe to drive.
If you cannot get an MOT that’s due, because you’re in self-isolation, the Department for Transport is working with insurers and the police to ensure people are not unfairly penalised for things that are out of their control.
Once the current movement restrictions have been lifted we will contact all our customers who’s vehicle was due an MOT during this period so they can avoid the inevitable rush that will be caused in 6 months time.
