Coronavirus: DVSA announces MoT extensions
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has released new guidance on MoTs due to the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic disrupting normal arrangements.
A statement on the DVSA’s website announced that, as of March 30th, a six-month extension is being brought in for all car, motorcycle and light van MoT checks. A paper exemption certificate will not be issued.
Separate conditions apply for vehicles with an MoT date before then, which can be found here.
However, the statement also noted that is important for vehicles to remain roadworthy during that time and the government has exempted garages from the new emergency shutdown regulations to permit essential repairs and maintenance to take place.
