MOTs Temporarily Suspended

Posted in General News on Thursday, March 26th, 2020

The Department for Transport (DfT) has stated that all owners of cars, vans and/or motorcycles will be granted a six month exemption from MOT testing from 30th March 2020. Vehicles must still be kept in a roadworthy condition during this time and garages will remain open should anybody need to have repairs carried out. It is hoped that this temporary exemption will enable motorists to travel to and from work when it is absolutely necessary or shop for necessities. The Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps, commented: “We must ensure those on the frontline of helping the nation combat COVID-19 are able to do so. Allowing this temporary exemption from vehicle testing will enable vital services such as deliveries to continue, frontline workers to get to work, and people to get essential food and medicine. Safety is key, which is why garages will remain open for essential repair work.”
