The government are encouraging drivers to bring their MOTs forward.
Added: 19 August 2020
The government are encouraging drivers to bring their MOTs forward if it is due in September, October or November 2020, to help beat the expected rush for tests.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is predicting that September, October and November will be extremely busy. Vehicles that were given an extension earlier this year due to COVID19 restrictions as well as those that would normally be due their MOT will both need to be tested.
Mikes Hawes. Chief Executive of the Society for Motor Manufacturers and Traders explained “owners are strongly encouraged to get their vehicle’s test done soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Motorists can be reassured that the sector has full COVID safety measures in place and many workshops are on hand to collect and deliver vehicles for vulnerable customers.”
To help beat the rush, you can book your MOT before it is due, ensuring your vehicle continues to be safe to drive.
If you get your MOT done:
- Over a month before it’s due, your MOT renewal date for next year will change
- Up to a month (minus a day) before your due date, you will keep the same renewal date next year
Please note that you cannot use your vehicle if its MOT runs out and you can be find up to £1,000 for driving a vehicle without a valid MOT.
