Coronovirus and Vehicle roadworthiness – MOT testing

The government states that vehicle drivers are responsible for ensuring their vehicle is roadworthy. Failure to do so can lead to dangerous vehicles being on the road and can lead to fines and punishments. The annual MOT test that is required on vehicles over 3 years old goes some way to ensure safe vehicles on our roads. The test includes checks of a wide range of components including brakes, exhaust emissions, tyres, wipers, horn, vehicle structure etc.

COVID-19 has affected every aspect of life including motoring. In response to the lock-down the government has issued an extension on the need for an MOT test. “Your car, van or motorcycle’s MOT expiry date will be extended by 6 months if it’s due on or after 30 March 2020 – but you must keep your vehicle safe to drive.” DO NOT GET CAUGHT OUT. Please note the final statement – “you must keep your vehicle safe to drive.”

The best course of action is simply to ensure you have your MOT carried out as normal. This ensures you have a certificate of road-worthiness for your vehicle and can avoid potential issues regarding insurance cover. Premier Group is here to help local key workers and motorists through maintaining an MOT testing service.
