If your car is due an MOT from the 30th March 2020 you are given a 6 month extension to try and prevent the spread of the virus and to keep critical workers on the road.
This is an OPTION and you can still take your car for its MOT if it’s due within the next 6 months.
However, it is the owners responsibility to keep their car roadworthy during the 6 months if you do not get the MOT carried out and you can be prosecuted for driving an un-roadworthy car.
If you are unfortunate enough to have an accident within the 6 months without an MOT and a component (tyres, brakes, suspension etc) on your car is deemed dangerous, then your insurance could possibly be void.
Also, one last thing to think about… in 6 months time when you call the garage to book in for your MOT, please bare in mind there will also be 6 months worth of customers ringing to book in too and there will be a long waiting list and a possibility you won’t be able to drive your car until it is MOT’d after the 6 months extension time.
So if you can safely, get your car MOT’d then do so. Alternatively we can do it for you when booked with a service in the Runcorn area. Remember it is your responsibility to keep it appropriately maintained during these difficult and uncertain times.
