Roads Minister Baroness Vere said that all vehicles that are due to take their MOT on 1 August must pass the test.
On 30 March drivers were given a six-month extension due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Baroness Vere said, “As people return to our roads, it is vital that motorists are able to keep their vehicles safe.
“That’s why as restrictions are eased, from 1 August MOT testing will again become mandatory.
“Garages across the country are open and I urge drivers who are due for their MOT to book a test as soon as they can.”
