MOT tests suspended for six months to help key workers

MOT tests have been suspended for six months because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Cars and vans that have a test due after March 30th can continue to be used if the MOT has expired.

A three months’ suspension on heavy good vehicles and buses has already been introduced.


It’s hoped the car MOT deferral will help key workers and those in healthcare and food supply to keep going to work.

Announcing the delay on Twitter, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said:

“Given the circumstances I’m granting an MOT temporary exemption.

“So that if your MOT is due from 30th March 2020 you will automatically receive a six-month extension.

“However, you must still keep your car in a roadworthy condition and garages will remain open if you need repairs.”
