Cars, motorcycles and vans are to be granted a six-month exemption from MOTs from 30 March, UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has announced.
The temporary extension means that if your MOT is due from 30th March, you will automatically receive a six-month extension.
Drivers will be expected to keep vehicles in a a roadworthy condition during the period, with garages remaining open for essential repair work.
Anyone who's MOT expires before the 30th March 2020 should still get an MOT.
Drivers can be prosecuted if driving with unsafe vehicles, the Department for Transport said.
“Allowing this temporary exemption from vehicle testing will enable vital services such as deliveries to continue, frontline workers to get to work, and people get essential food and medicine," Mr Shapps said.
