Update - What You Need To Know About The 6 Month MOT Exemption

All vehicle owners will be granted a 6-month MOT exemption from Monday 30th March. The Gov.uk website explains in more detail what you should do if your MOT is due on or after this date.

This latest announcement comes after Boris Johnson faced questions to clarify COVID-19 concerns on whether it was safe to continue MOT tests.

During the exemption period, drivers are warned that their vehicle must be kept in a roadworthy condition and garages will remain open for essential repair work - which is particularly vital for frontline workers who need to travel to and from work.

It’s important to note that if your first MOT was due before the 30th March and your vehicle did not pass then you will not be exempt and will need to pass an MOT test before you can drive it again.
