Possible changes to MOT requirements

As all drivers know, it is currently a legal requirement to have your car, van or other vehicle undergo the MOT test every three years to ensure that it is roadworthy and in safe condition. However, it has been in the news recently that the government have proposed changing the law so that cars would legally only have to be tested every four years.

It has been suggested that this would save vehicle owners many millions of pounds, but many experts have concerns that the move would have detrimental effects on the safety of our roads as problems may go undetected for longer, increasing the risk of accidents. If this plan goes ahead, it will become more important than ever before to have your car serviced on a regular basis and ensure that it remains in good condition in between MOTs.
