The government has announced that vehicles with an expiry date on or after 30 March 2020 will be granted an automatic six month extension.

“DVSA will start moving MOT expiry dates automatically in the MOT system from 30/3. This will initially be done in a few batches, so that after a few days they are working 7 days ahead. That will mean, say, that every Tuesday – the following Tuesday’s tests are moved 6 months ahead.

“Some types of test – such as vehicles coming up for their first test and some specialist vehicles may take a little longer – but this should be all automatic.

“The new ‘due date’ will appear in the MOT History Service [hwww.gov.uk/check-mot-history] when it is amended – that will enable customers to check it has been done and they can legally use the car for getting to work as a critical worker, or getting necessary shopping.”

Owners are still required to keep their vehicles roadworthy during this time.
