MOT's - Cars, motorcycles and vans will all be subject to a temporary six-month MoT exemption in an effort to maintain essential travel during the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, the Department for Transport (DfT) has announced.
The exemption will come into play from March 30th but the DfT said that motorists still have a duty to keep their vehicles “in a roadworthy condition”.
Drivers can still be prosecuted if driving unsafe vehicles, it said in a statement issued this morning (March 25), and advice on keeping a vehicle in a good condition has been issued via the DfT website.
In making its announcement the DfT once again reiterated that people should stay at home and avoid travel in a bid to control the coronavirus outbreak.
