Following changes to the COVID-19 restrictions announced by government for England from 19 July, DVSA explains what this means for MOT testing and how this will affect you.

What this means for MOT garages

DVSA’s advice is:

  • face coverings: adhere to the rules of the MOT garage they are visiting
  • social distancing: use common sense and take care not to allow situations that could result in crowding
  • other measures: continue to take sensible precautions and maintain existing best practice on vehicle ventilation and hand washing/sanitising

DVSA encourages all MOT garages to continue to follow the latest guidance to protect your colleagues and customers.

Further updates

Some of the rules DVSA has temporarily relaxed for MOT garages will change, they will provide further details via a Special Notice.
