The Department for Transport (DfT) has announced that all vehicle owners in Britain will be given a six-month MOT testing exemption.
From 30 March all cars, vans and motorcycles are now exempt from a MOT test, this will allow people to continue with essential travel.
However, the DfT has warned vehicles must remain in a road worthy condition and garages will remain open for essential repair work.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said, “We must ensure those on the frontline of helping the nation combat Covid-19 are able to do so.
“Allowing this temporary exemption from vehicle testing will enable vital services such as deliveries to continue, frontline workers to get to work, and people to get essential food and medicine.
“Safety is key, which is why garages will remain open for essential repair work.”
