The government have suspended the MOT extension given to motorists to get their MOT certificate for their vehicle. The original extension lasted to November 2020, this however has been brought back to August 2020. What this means is if your vehicle has not been through it’s MOT exceeding the August 2020 date given by the government, then it is illegal to drive your vehicle out on the road.
The RAC today have called on all of its members to ensure that they avoid the mad dash to the garages to get an MOT done on their vehicle. There are literally thousands of cars out on the road that were due to have their MOT however with Covid19 forcing a lock down rules were relaxed, the government granted an extension and gave motorists an extra 6 months grace to get their MOT certificate updated for their vehicle.
However, with the extension being scrapped that means there will be a massive influx of MOT bookings in garages. If the garages are fully booked and backed up for weeks on end and your MOT is over the August 2020 extension period, this means you will not be able to drive your car out on the road, it would be illegal and unsafe to do so.
