The Department for Transport have announced that any cars and vans due for an MOT from 30th March 2020 will have their MOT extended by 6 months.
You do not need to do anything to extend your vehicle’s MOT expiry date if it’s on or after 30 March 2020. However, vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition and drivers can be prosecuted if they drive an unsafe vehicle.
Your vehicle will be automatically given a 6-month MOT exemption.
This will extend your current MOT expiry date by 6 months.
Example: Your vehicle’s MOT was due to expire on 3 April 2020.
This will automatically be extended to 3 October 2020.
You will need to get your MOT by this date.
This will allow vehicle owners to continue to be able to get to work where
this absolutely cannot be done from home or do essential shopping.
If your vehicle tax is due, you can tax your vehicle as soon as your
MOT due date has been updated.
