Government Prepares to Update Position on MOT Extension

MOT Bay by Hofmann Megaplan

Official sources in the automotive aftermarket have today shared the news that a change to the government's position on the MOT Exemption is coming next week (1st June 2020), but so far that is all we know.

The Garage Equipment Association shared the news with its members today & advised that the UK's garages prepare, as a surge in MOTs is expect as a result of the announcement. 

No further detail has been released on what is going to be included within the announcement, but the government will be updating its position on the MOT extension scheme, which was introduced back in March.

The original announcement gave many qualifying vehicles an automatic 6-month extension on the need for an MOT Test.
