COVID-19: MOT exemption for vehicle owners

Vehicle owners will be granted a 6-month exemption from MOT testing, enabling them to continue to travel to work where this absolutely cannot be done from home, or shop for necessities during the COVID-19 outbreak.

All cars, vans and motorcycles which usually would require an MOT test will be exempted from needing a test from 30 March 2020.

Vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition, and garages will remain open for essential repair work. Drivers can be prosecuted if driving unsafe vehicles.

For further information please visit the GOV.UK website.
