Cars, Vans & Motorcycles Six-Month MOT Extension
It has been announced that any vehicle that is due an MOT on or after 30th March 2020 will be given a six-month extension. The due date of the MOT will be automatically extended by six months to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
You can still drive your vehicle, but it is your responsibility to ensure that your vehicle is in a roadworthy condition and is safe to drive, keeping yourself and other road users safe. Failure to do so can lead to prosecution.
You can check your vehicle's MOT history and extension date here. If your vehicle is due its first MOT, the six-month extension is automatically applied too. Please note when checking the website, it may not be updated immediately, we recommend you reguarly check it for updates.
Drivers who own a vehicle with an MOT expiry before 30th March, will still need to have their vehicle tested as usual. The Department for Transport, insurers and the police are aware this may be difficult due to people self-isolating, but they are working together to ensure no one will be penalised unfairly.
