DVSA advises vehicle owners to bring forward their MOT test!

Install Montage Extended

As expected, the MOT exemption put in place last year to aid vehicle owners is set to cause even more havoc this year – specifically, this Autumn. MOTs are predicted to surge once again throughout the Autumn months of August, September and October, in line with the rise from 2020.

Since the beginning of 2021, the DVSA has been urging vehicle owners who have an MOT due in August, September, October or November this year, to bring it forward into the months of April, May, June or July.

A DVSA spokesperson said:

“Last year we issued exemptions to help keep industry moving during the pandemic.

“As a result, test dates are not evenly spread throughout the year and August, September, October and November are significantly busier than usual.

“For peace of mind, we are advising vehicle owners with test dates in August, September, October and November to bring their vehicle in for test during May, June or July instead, to avoid the busier months.”

Has it worked?

It would appear not.

Despite calls from the aftermarket for more visibility of the advice, the DVSA failed to encourage vehicle owners to bring forward their MOTs this Spring – leading to another expected sharp rise in MOT services this Autumn.
