Coronavirus: what happens if your car, van or motorcycle’s MOT due date is on or after 30th March 2020? Here’s what you need to know…
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the UK Government has confirmed today that drivers who have an MOT due from Monday 30th March will now be granted a six month extension.
COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called coronavirus.
What do you need to do?
You do not need to do anything to extend your vehicle’s MOT expiry date if it’s on or after 30th March 2020. However, you must keep your vehicle roadworthy and safe to drive.
Your vehicle will be automatically given a 6-month MOT exemption and this will extend your current MOT expiry date by 6 months. For example, if your MOT was due to expire on the 31st March 2020, it now expires on the 31st September 2020.
