Beat the upcoming MOT rush by making sure you book early for your appointment. The DVLA gave all vehicles due an MOT test between 30th March 2020 and 31st July 2020 a six-month extension to their MOT due date to help keep motorists moving during the height of the pandemic.
This extension meant that last year, MOT testing centres like ours were bustling during September, October, and November, with twice the number of cars requiring MOT testing at the same time. It will be just as busy those same months this year as all those vehicles are due for renewal.
With so many vehicles due MOTs at the same time, we’re urging vehicle owners to book their MOTs well in advance to ensure they can get an appointment for a day and time that suits them.
It also means you’ll be guaranteed to get your MOT test booked in and carried out before it expires. Reminder: It is illegal to drive a vehicle that doesn’t have a valid, up to date MOT, and you could be fined up to £1,000 for driving a car or van without one. VOSA computerises the MOT system so police and mobile camera units can check remotely to see if your vehicle has a current MOT and if it doesn’t, they can take the necessary steps to stop and fine you.
When booking your MOT test, remember you can MOT your vehicle four weeks before your current certificate expires and the new expiry date will still be one year after your current expiry date. If you are not sure when your current MOT expires, you can check this quickly and easily on the government website by clicking here.
