Mandatory MOT test returns from 1 August
Mandatory MOTs for vehicles in England, Scotland and Wales will be reintroduced from 1 August, the government has said.
Drivers have been allowed to delay the test for six months due to the coronavirus pandemic, but there are growing concerns about road safety.
Roads Minister Baroness Vere said MOTs would be key as restrictions were eased and more people returned to the roads.
"Garages across the country are open and I urge drivers who are due for their MOT to book a test,"
“While exemptions are still available for vehicle owners with an MOT due date before 1 August, it is vital that drivers still take their vehicle to be checked if they notice something is wrong in the same way that they usually would."
