The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency has advised that, as from 30th March, MOT due dates for cars, motorcycles and light vans will be extended by six months.
A spokesperson for the department said that this was being done to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
As per the advice being given by the DVSA, you won’t need to do anything to extend your vehicle’s MOT expiry date if it’s on or after 30th March 2020.
As an example, if your vehicle’s MOT was due to expire on 3rd April 2020, then your MOT expiry date will automatically be extended to 3rd October 2020, so you will need to get your MOT by this date.
The spokesperson added that you ‘must keep your vehicle safe to drive’.
