Be Sure to Keep your Car in Good Condition

Posted in General News on Wednesday, July 15th, 2020

According to recent research around one in ten cars could be being driven on our roads with a dangerous fault at the moment because of the six month MOT extension which was put in place to help motorists cope with the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. The research was conducted by the car service price comparison site, bookmygarage.com and it comes after the release of statistics from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) which indicate that 9.1% of MOTs are failed because a dangerous fault is found. With these statistics in mind the DVSA has stressed the importance of conducting regular vehicle checks at this time. Despite the six month MOT extension however, the DVSA stated that MOT testing had reached 70% of its normal levels by the end of June and is continuing to rise. The six month MOT extension is due to come to an end on 1st August at which point MOT testing will return to normality.
