MOT exemptions – 1 year on

Today is the anniversary of the first MOT exemptions issued during the pandemic. Almost 10 million vehicles were given an exemption between 30 March and the end of July last year.
We know that the pandemic and MOT exemptions have had a considerable impact on the industry. Thank you for your positive response to these challenges; helping your most vulnerable customers, adapting your workshops to keep staff safe and dealing with changes in test volumes after the exemptions ended.

Motorists will need reminders

For motorists, your hard work has paid off. In our latest survey, almost two thirds of motorists said the pandemic had no impact on their MOT experience. But many motorists will still find it difficult to remember their MOT date this year, because it’s likely to be in a different month. So, we’re going to be promoting our MOT reminder service to motorists on social media over the next few weeks and months. If you want to promote the MOT reminder service to your customers, please follow us on social media and share and retweet our content on Twitter: @DVSAgovuk and Facebook:
