Coronavirus Temporary MOT amendments - UPDATED 27th March 2020

Information on MOT's that are expired and due in the short term...

The government have today made an announcement on what to do with MOTs falling the near future.

"From 30 March 2020, MOT due dates for cars, motorcycles and light vans will be extended by 6 months. This is being done to help prevent the spread of coronavirus."

For the government information on vehicles falling after 30th March visit

There is separate guidance information for those that expire before the 30th March

The DVSA have clarified a couple of things that were a little bit grey as to how the 6 month extension would work and we thought we should share that with you. Like all of these things they are under constant review.

How will it work?
DVSA will start moving MOT expiry dates automatically in the MOT system from 30th March 2020. This will initially be done in a few batches, so that after a few days they are working 7 days ahead. That will mean that every Tuesday - the following Tuesday's tests are moved 6 months ahead.

How long will it last? 
The Government will keep this under review to manage the spread of COVID-19.
