COVID-19 New rules on MOT testing
Added: 30 March 2020
Coronavirus: MOTs due from 30 March 2020
Your car, van or motorcycle’s MOT expiry date will be extended by 6 months if it’s due on or after 30 March 2020 - but you must keep your vehicle safe to drive. Please follow Government Guidance.
Your car, motorcycle, light van or other light vehicle’s MOT expiry date will be automatically extended by 6 months if it’s due on or after Monday 30 March 2020.
This means that your vehicle will still have a valid MOT certificate for an extra 6 months.
You do not need to do anything for this to happen. However, you must keep your vehicle safe to drive.
This applies to all vehicles, including those that need their first ever MOT test.
You need to follow different rules if your MOT expiry date was on or before Sunday 29 March 2020.
