MOT Extension Lifted!



The government has confirmed that it will reintroduce mandatory MOT testing from 1 August in line with gradually easing lock down restrictions and rising traffic levels. Drivers had been given a six-month extension of their vehicle’s MOT certificate to discourage non-essential travel and free up garages for repair work to essential workers’ vehicles. The scheme was set to run until March 2021 but will now end in a month’s time.


The extension still applies to all MOT certificates due to expire before 1 August, but from that date on wards, drivers must have their car’s road worthiness tested within a year of their last test. Irrespective of whether the extension applies, penalties still apply to vehicles found to be in an unsafe condition.
