Announcement by the Department for Transport (DfT) that mandatory MOT testing is to return on 1 August.
The current rolling six-month MoT extension scheme brought in during the lockdown will cease at the end of this month, with the Government confirming that it will reintroduce mandatory MoT testing from August 1 in line with gradually easing lockdown restrictions and rising traffic levels.
The number of tests is expected to overtake pre-exemption demand in August and is forecast to continue rising before reaching a peak around October/November when the volume of tests is expected to be 200 per cent above normal levels.
DVSA data suggests testing won’t return to normal levels until around February 2021 before a significant drop in demand come March, marking one year since the six-month MOT exemption was announced. The DVSA has made it clear that motorists must ensure their vehicle remains in road legal condition at all times.
Police officers can still fine motorists up to £2,500 for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition.
