The Government announces MOT delay

Wednesday 1st April 2020

MOT delay

In light of the current coronavirus pandemic, GOV.UK have announced that MOT due dates have been granted a 6 month extension period. This temporary exemption from vehicle testing will enable vital services to continue. Front-line workers will be able to go to work and people will be able to travel to get essential food and medicine during this national lockdown whereby MOT testing might be hard to come by.

This temporary MOT delay applies to both light vans, cars and motorcycles and trucks buses and trailers.

Light vans, cars and motorcycles

Your car, van or motorcycle’s MOT expiry date will be extended by 6 months if it’s due on or after 30 March 2020 – but you must keep your vehicle safe to drive. For this reason we have put together a daily vehicle check video which you can follow at home to ensure your vehicle is roadworthy.

However we understand that some customers would like to stick to their original MOT schedule, for this reason we are offering van MOT’s for £40 across four of our sites and have extended our opening hours in order to carry out MOT’s at your convenience. If you would like to book in your MOT, click the respective branch below.


Trucks, buses and trailers

All trucks, buses and trailers will be exempt from needing an MOT for 3 months from 21 March 2020. Some customers might need to apply for this, depending on the vehicle.

In most cases your truck will be automatically issued a 3 month exemption if it’s due an MOT on or after 21 March. You won’t receive a paper exemption certificate. If you don’t know when your vehicle’s MOT expiry date is, you can check the MOT history of your vehicle.
