Vehicle owners will be granted a six-month exemption from MOT testing, enabling them to continue to travel to work where this absolutely cannot be done from home, or shop for necessities, the Government has confirmed.
All cars and vans which usually would require an MOT test will be exempted from needing a test from 30th March. Vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition, and garages will remain open for essential repair work. Drivers can be prosecuted if driving unsafe vehicles.
Transport secretary Grant Shapps said: “We must ensure those on the frontline of helping the nation combat COVID-19 are able to do so.
“Allowing this temporary exemption from vehicle testing will enable vital services such as deliveries to continue, frontline workers to get to work, and people get essential food and medicine.
“Safety is key, which is why some garages will remain open for essential repair work.”
The advice from www.gov.uk: "You must not take your vehicle for its MOT if you or someone you live with has these symptoms, or if you’re extremely vulnerable from COVID-19."
The health and safety of our customers, employees and business partners is our top priority and these measures are constantly updated
