MOT Extension is due to end

  • Barrowford MOT Centre

Back in April we told you about the MOT extension scheme that was confirmed by the government that if your car was due an MOT after 30th March 2020 then you were eligible for exemption on this for 6 months.

Example: Your vehicle’s MOT was due to expire on 3 April 2020 – This will automatically be extended to 3 October 2020. You will need to get your MOT by this date.

Before 30 March or after 31 July : You must book an MOT as usual.

When you must not take your vehicle for its MOT

You must not take your vehicle for its MOT if either:

  • you or someone you live with has coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms
  • you’ve been told by the NHS Test and Trace service that you’ve been in contact with someone who has coronavirus

You must stay at home (self-isolate) if either of these situations apply.

If you recently entered the UK

If you’ve entered the UK in the last 14 days you must not take your vehicle for its MOT, unless you:

  • arrived from a country on the ‘travel corridor’ list
  • have a job that means you do not have to self-isolate

If the MOT has run out

If your tax is due to run out and you do not intend to get the car MOT’d anytime soon, register your vehicle as ‘off the road’ – you cannot renew your vehicle tax if your MOT has expired.

Call in at Barrowford MOT and book an MOT test. Our prices are reasonable and service second to none. You can tax your vehicle once it has passed its MOT.
