If your car was due say tomorrow for a MOT are you still legally entitled to drive?

Here you go from the Rover 75 forum this afternoon :-


Until any edict from the Government, this is the answer from DVSA

"Thank you for your email enquiry dated 20 March 2020, concerning an MOT.

I appreciate this is a difficult time for the whole country, at this moment in time there is no exemption or extension from MOT testing, or no contingency plan in place. If your vehicle MOT expires whilst you are self-isolating, then you are only able to drive the vehicle directly to/from a pre-booked MOT test after midnight on the date of expiry of the current certificate. After that time the vehicle must not be kept on a public road until it is re-tested and taxed etc.

If your local MOT garage is unable to accommodate you, you may need to look for one further afield.

Nothing has been released as to what will happen going forward, so for now it remains business as usual. The gov.uk website will be updated with all information as and when decisions have been made.

Find the latest COVID19 government guidelines on the GOV.UK website here.

I am sorry we cannot provide you with a more robust response at this present time."

Didn't Martin Lewis say they were going to give folk a waiver ticket, in this eventuality, think Ireland have something in place.

Probably an extension will be granted. Exceptional times!

There’s no law that allows them to exempt or extend an MoT test. It’s a bit of a pickle.

Unless my understanding of the legal position is way off, which is possible, that’s wrong. They’ve already extended good vehicle tests, if they could do it for MoTs they’d have done it by now.

Fair enough, I'm guessing the DVLA will put something on their web site.

Got mine done last week, the guy in the garage said it was mental busy as people were getting in early in case of a lockdown. Might be worth trying Love’s in Johnstown as they also sell petrol and have a post office.

Yes timpsons and locksmiths are still in business too.

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.
