Government Grant MOT Exemption In Light Of COVID-19 Outbreak




The Government have announced that vehicle owners will be granted a six-month MOT exemption to help the Coronavirus outbreak.

All cars, light-commercial vehicles and motorcycles requiring an MOT test will be exempt for six months commencing 30th March 2019.

The Government also advised that any drivers affected by self-isolation who cannot get an MOT would not be 'unfairly penalised' by the Department of Transport.

Mark Hammond, TCH Leasing Managing Director, added, "This news is a very welcome announcement, meaning stretched workshops are not flooded with cars, and non-essential users are not required to venture out in a period of lockdown. Of course, it should go without saying, that vehicles must only be driven if they are in a safe and roadworthy condition. Hopefully this will allow workshops around the country to focus on supporting essential workers as best as they can"

All Practical Driving Tests and Annual Testing for lorries, buses and coaches were previously suspended for up to 3 months to help curb the spread of the virus.
