The government published new guidance yesterday on what will happen if your car, van or motorcycle’s MOT due date is on or after 30 March 2020. This is being done to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
From 30 March 2020, MOT due dates for cars, motorcycles and light vans will be extended by 6 months. You do not need to do anything to extend the MOT expiry of your vehicle however you do need to make sure that you keep the vehicle safe to drive.
