No Change To The MOT Test

25 Jan

MOT Test Centre Sheffield 

MOT Testing

The government has recently had a rethink on their proposed idea to allow cars to have their first MOT test after four years instead of the current three. As the build quality of modern cars has constantly increased over the years, the government wanted to allow the vehicle an extra year without an MOT test.

The proposed change for the MOT test was always going to be a controversial subject, with the last change to the test being 50 years ago. Moving the MOT test to four years instead of three would see car owners save more money, possibly £100 million per year, but it has not gone down too well with the public according to Regit. Fewer than half of the public would welcome the change to the test. We have however come a long way since the test was introduced in 1960 when a vehicles first MOT test was after 10 years. Imagine the controversy that would cause now!

The UK doesn’t follow suit with a host of European countries regarding the first MOT test. Many of these European countries allow the first test to come in the fourth year. But maybe that is why the UK have some of the safest roads in the world.
