Given the circumstances the UK Government is granting an MOT temporary exemption so that if your MOT is due from 30th March 2020 you will automatically receive a SIX-month extension.
However, you must still keep your car in a roadworthy condition and garages will remain open if you need repairs.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has published guidance for vehicle owners that says:
- You should still get an MOT if it expires before 30 March 2020.
- If your MOT due date expires from 30 March 2020 it will be extended by 6 months.
- Your MOT centre can stay open after 30 March 2020 to carry out MOTs if you need to.
- This could include retests or tests of a vehicle that had an MOT due before 30 March.
Garages can also stay open to carry out repairs or services as well.
