The Secretary of State for Transport, Grant Shapps has announced that vehicles which are due an MOT from 30 March 2020 will be given an automatic six-month extension. On twitter he said: Given the circumstances I’m 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.

Legislation will be introduced on March 30 and will come into immediate effect for 12 months, following a short consultation with key organisations. Drivers will still need to get their vehicle tested until the new regulations come into place, if they need to use it. If you cannot get an MOT that’s due because you’re in self-isolation, the Department for Transport is working with insurers and the police to ensure people are not unfairly penalised for things out of their control. Practical driving tests and annual testing for lorries, buses and coaches have been suspended for up to 3 months.
