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.

Think you know about cars?

Here are some fascinating (but fairly useless!) facts about motor vehicles which we hope will help raise a smile and add some light-heartedness into your day during this difficult time.
