The Government has today (25th March) updated the rules for MOT testing. From 30 March 2020, MOT due dates for cars, motorcycles and light vans will be extended by 6 months. This will continue until confirmed otherwise. Vehicles with expiry dates up to and including 29th March must still be tested.
You are still absolutely required to maintain a vehicle in a safe and roadworthy state if you intend to use it on the road.
The government is allowing MOT centres and garages to remain open during the lock-down so you can still get an MOT (if required) or essential repairs carried out, but only if you need your vehicle for the following reasons:
* to shop for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
* for any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
* to travel to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
Here at Monmouth MOT Centre we are a team of individual people. Many of our partners work in the health and social care sector. Some of us live with very vulnerable people. We are all concerned for our families at home and spreading the virus to them unnecessarily. However, we are all very conscious of the national emergency and want to play our part.
From Monday 30th March, and until the lock-down is lifted, we will be closed for all work unless your requirement is both urgent and absolutely essential. This is limited to MOTs that expired on 29th March or before, work required to maintain roadworthiness or work for NHS workers. Where you have access to another car you should use that until after restrictions are lifted and only get yours repaired then.
We appreciate your understanding during these difficult times and sincerely hope you and your loved ones remain safe and well.
