MOT expiry and due dates for vehicles with COVID-19 MOT exemption

car MOT renewal date

IS MY VEHICLE’S MOT DUE IF I RECEIVED AN MOT EXEMPTION LAST YEAR?

If you received an MOT exemption last year, you may well be wondering if your vehicle’s MOT is due again soon. For the majority of vehicles that have only recently had an MOT, that recent MOT will be valid for 12 months, meaning that there has been a huge shift in the number of MOTs that expire towards the end of the calendar year.

This shift means that there is a surge in demand for a limited number of MOT slots during this period, and we have seen data to suggest that normal MOT demand now peaks at up to 200% towards the end of the year!

YOU MAY STILL WANT TO GET AN MOT – RESET YOUR VEHICLE CALENDAR!

Even if your MOT is not due just yet, you may still want to get your vehicle MOT’d. You don’t have to wait until your MOT expires to have another MOT test, and having another test before the current test expires is common when selling vehicles, to ensure that the vehicle is fully roadworthy before it is sold.

Due to this, it is common for drivers to have their MOT, vehicle service, insurance and tax all due at the same time, which really helps to ensure that none are forgotten and missed! If your vehicle’s MOT is now out of sync, you may wish to book another MOT to reset your vehicle calendar, and avoid the surge in demand for MOTs towards the end of the calendar year.

Note – There is a chance that your vehicle may not pass the new test first time if its condition has changed, but once it has passed, the new MOT will be valid for 12 months.
