Check your vehicle is safe

If your vehicle MOT runs out on or after 30th March 2020, the Government will automatically extend your MOT expiry date for 6 months because of the Coronavirus outbreak. However, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE for making sure your vehicle is always safe to drive ('roadworthy'). It can be unsafe even if you have a current MOT certificate.

You can be fined up to £2,500, be banned from driving and get 3 penalty points for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition.

The Government has listed the following checks you should carry out to check your vehicle is safe to drive:


Every time you drive you should check:
the windscreen, windows and mirrors are clean
all lights work
the brakes work
Your vehicle's handbook will tell you how often to check the:
engine oil
water level in the radiator or expansion tank
brake fluid level
battery
windscreen and rear window washer bottles - top up with windscreen washer fluid if necessary
tyres - they must have the correct tread depth and be free of cuts and defects
The handbook will also tell you when your vehicle needs to be serviced.

Tyre tread

Tread must be a certain depth depending on the type of vehicle:
cars, light vans and light trailers - 1.6 millimetres (mm)
motorcycles, large vehicles and passenger-carrying vehicles - 1mm
Mopeds only need to have visible tread.
There must be tread across the middle three-quarters and around the entire tyre.

Coronavirus and MOTs

The Government has issued the following information regarding MOTs due on or after 30 March 2020 :

Your car, van or motorcycle's MOT expiry date will be extended by 6 months if it's due on or after 30 March 2020 - but you must keep your vehicle safe to drive.

What you need to do

Your car, motorcycle, light van or other light vehicle's MOT expiry date will be automatically extended by 6 months if it's due on or after Monday 30 March 2020.

This means that your vehicle will still have a valid MOT certificate for an extra 6 months.

You do not need to do anything for this to happen. However, YOU MUST KEEP YOUR VEHICLE SAFE TO DRIVE.

This applies to all vehicles, including those that need their first ever MOT test.

Example Your vehicle's MOT was due to expire on 3 April 2020. This will automatically be extended to 3 October 2020. You will need to get your MOT by this date.

Check your MOT expiry date has been extended.

Your MOT expiry date will usually be updated on the day your MOT is due to expire. However, it might be done up to a few days before.

You can check your MOT history to see when your MOT expiry date has been extended. Keep checking back if your new expiry date is not showing yet.

You will not get a paper certificate to show your new MOT expiry dateIf your vehicle tax is due

You can tax your vehicle as soon as your MOT expiry date has been updated.

Keep your vehicle safe to drive

You must make sure your vehicle is safe to drive ('roadworthy'). It can be unsafe even if your MOT expiry date has been extended.

You can be fined up to £2,500, be banned from driving and get 3 penalty points for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition.

You should still take your vehicle to be repaired at your garage. The government is allowing garages to remain open for this purpose.

CORONAVIRUS – MESSAGE TO OUR CUSTOMERS

Following the Government advice issued last night we would like to advise our customers that as an essential business, we remain open.

However, in order to support the 'stay at home' message, we will only be taking bookings for vehicles which require:

essential maintenance
essential repair work
MOT or MOT repairs.

We will also be prioritising bookings for customers who are classed as 'keyworkers'.

We are happy to take future bookings for non-essential work but as we do not know if the 'stay at home' advice will be extended beyond the next three weeks, we may have to contact customers to amend dates and bookings.

We hope you will bear with us over the coming weeks; your continued support is very much appreciated. We very much hope the government measures help reduce the spread of Coronavirus and reduce the impact on our very important health workers and emergency services.

Stay well and safe.
