MOT tests will become mandatory again from 1 August 2020

The government has reinstated MOT testing from 1 August.

Originally the UK government granted a six month extension to those needing an MOT between 29 March and 31 August..

Due to the number of drivers returning to the road, the government has brought the cut-off date for mandatory tests forward from 1 September to 1 August.

If your MOT was or is due between 30 March and 31 July 2020, you will still be granted the full six-month extension. So if, for example, your MOT is due on 30 July, you won’t need an MOT check until 30 January 2021. This is for both MOT renewals and vehicles due their first MOT test in this period. If your MOT expiry date was on or before 29 March, you should book an MOT as usual.
