The Government has announced that new measures will be introduced on 24 September to limit the spread of coronavirus. Do these affect MOT testing?

What this means for MOT garages

Currently the new restrictions do not affect MOT garages. MOT testing which has carried on throughout the pandemic, should continue.

To help ensure MOT tests can be conducted safely, DVSA has previously published guidance for MOT testers about operating safely during coronavirus.

Helping you to manage demand

DVSA is aware dealers are dealing with extra demand for MOTs this autumn, because of the 6-month MOT exemption which was introduced to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. To help you manage demand, DVSA has created a toolkit of materials for you to send to your customers.

DVSA will keep the situation under review and let you know if anything changes.

The latest government guidance to stop the spread of coronavirus is available on GOV.UK.
