Book Now at Volvo Cars Poole to Beat The MOT Rush
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is encouraging motorists whose MOT is due this autumn to get their vehicle’s MOT done as soon as possible to beat the expected rush for tests.
Cars, that were due to an MOT between 30 March and 31 July 2020 were given a 6-month extension to help keep motorists moving during the coronavirus pandemic. Vehicles that are due to an MOT from 1 August 2020 will not get an extension and will need to be tested as normal.
DVSA is predicting that September, October and November 2020 are likely to be very busy months for MOT centres.
This is because vehicles that were given an extension and those that would normally be due to their MOT will both need to be tested.
Mike Hawes, Chief Executive of the Society for Motor Manufacturers and Traders, said:
"Although the 6-month MOT extension provision ends on 1 August, deferred tests have created increased demand this autumn so owners are strongly encouraged to get their vehicle’s test done as soon as possible to avoid disappointment."
