Mandatory MOT testing will be reintroduced from 1st August 2020. Back in March, drivers were given a 6-month exemption from MOT testing due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Now as restrictions start to lift, all drivers whose car, van or motorcycle is due for an MOT test from 1 August 2020 will be required to get a test certificate to continue driving their vehicle.
MOT tests are important for road safety and ensure that vehicle parts, including tyres, seatbelts, brakes, lights and exhausts, are in proper working order.
Drivers with an MOT due date before 1 August will still receive a 6-month exemption from testing. However, all vehicles must continue to be properly maintained and kept in a roadworthy condition, and people are able to voluntarily get their MOT sooner should they wish. Motorists can be prosecuted for driving an unsafe vehicle.
