During the lockdown period, the UK government extended the MOT test 2020 period by means to help motorists and MOT testing points across the UK, in light of COVID19 but also to prepare for safe testing.
In summary, those drivers who had a MOT test due between the 30th March and the 31st July 2020 have 6 months from the due date, to book their MOT test. Throughout this time period your insurance will still be valid, and the vehicles records will be updated so that the police can see that you have a valid MOT test certificate.
For those drivers who have their test due as from next month the 1st August 2020, this extension will not apply to you and so you will need to book in your vehicle for a MOT test as usual.
Please note that you should not take your vehicle in for a MOT test 2020 if you qualify under the following:
- You are self-isolating as you or someone you live with has coronavirus symptoms
- You are being advised to shield as you are extremely vulnerable from coronavirus
Please contact Stourbridge Automotive if you require assistance with booking your vehicle in for a MOT test.
