New MOT Rules for 2021

In March 2020, as part of the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, vehicle owners were advised that due to the national lockdown, they were able to delay their MOT test checks by a maximum of six months.

This period of extension has now ended, and vehicle owners are now required to obtain an MOT certificate for their vehicle.

When you should get an MOT

Owners of a car, van, or motorcycle are required to get an MOT for their vehicle on: 

  • The third anniversary of the date it was registered, or
  • On the anniversary of your last MOT if the vehicle is more than three years old

If you’re unsure when your vehicle is due an MOT, you can check your MOT history on the government website.

Getting an MOT if you have symptoms of COVID-19

As part of the government’s continued response to the pandemic it has been stipulated that if you or someone you live with develops Coronavirus symptoms, you should not take your vehicle to the test centre yourself.

Similarly, if you have been alerted by the NHS Track and Trace app, or have recently returned to the UK and are required to self-isolate, you should not attend the test centre.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19

If you have an MOT test booked and develop symptoms of COVID-19, you must alert the test centre prior to your appointment. Some test centres have a collection and drop-off option and may be able to accomodate you.

If the test centre doesn’t offer this service, somebody else who is insured to drive your vehicle can take it on your behalf.

If this isn’t possible, you must wait until you’re no longer self isolating before taking your vehicle to the test centre.

If your MOT certificate expires prior to your MOT test

You cannot park or drive your vehicle on the road if your MOT certificate has expired. There are two exceptions to this rule:

  • You are driving the vehicle to be repaired, or
  • You are driving the vehicle to the test centre

You can be fined up to £1,000 for driving your vehicle without a valid MOT certificate.

When to book your MOT

You can book your MOT one month (minus one day) ahead of the due date and still retain the same renewal date for the following year.

Some of the most common reasons  a car will fail its MOT include lighting and signalling, suspension, brakes and tyres. Regularly servicing your vehicle will ensure it remains road legal and help to spot potential faults early.

You should check your tyres have the correct tread depth and have no cracks prior to your MOT test, as this can lead to your vehicle failing. You can buy tyres online if they’re below the legal minimum depth or have any other issues.
