Following mounting pressure from industry bodies and road safety organisations, the Government has announced that the MOT Extension initiative, launched in March, is to end on 1st August.

At the start of lockdown, and in the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Government announced that from 30th March any car, van or motorcycle will be eligible for a 6 month MOT extension.

This was introduced to help ease the pressure on garages and motorists to continue to use their vehicles for essential travel, even when their test had expired.


We are living in crucial times right now. The coronavirus pandemic is gripping the nation and the strict social distancing lockdown has resulted in many of us having to stay at home, virtually all the time.

The Government recently announced an extension for MOT Tests that are due after 30th March 2020. Cars, vans and motorcycles are eligible for a 6 month extension, however, you must ensure your vehicle or bike is roadworthy during this extension otherwise you can be fined up to £2,500, face a driving ban and 3 penalty points if you are found to be driving a vehicle that is in a dangerous condition.
