Recently the government has updated its guidelines for MOT tests. You will now face prosecution if you have failed you MOT, even if your previous MOT hasn’t expired.
Previously you could take your car for an MOT early so that issues may be resolved prior to last years test expiring. However the guidelines have now changed and state:
The only exception are to drive to a pre-booked re-test or to have the defects fixed.
That means that if you are driving a car that hasn’t got a valid MOT you face fines of up to £2,500, a driving ban and three penalty points.
If you have an MOT with us and your car fails we can offer you a loan car, dependant on availability, for you to use whilst we get your car up to the current MOT standards.
