MOT rule change.

Good move. I always thought the initial plan of a years worth of exemptions was too much.

The one year MOT extension was only for N. Ireland and is unchanged Steve.

No i meant the 6 month extension scheme was initially touted to run for 1 year.

 

Although how that would have worked after you got to the end of your 6 month extension ive no idea.

 

To many people use the mot to tell them whats b*****red on their cars rather than actively maintaining them.

So mines due in a week or so - do I get six months from July? Or is it six months from when they first introduced it?

6 months from when its due I think. Or you can just go get an mot as normal.

I run a garage with MOT testing station and would recommend that if you MOT test runs out next week find somewhere to test it as in 6 months there will be a backlog.

Or perhaps the MOT will see sense and change the test to mileage related rather than annual

I dont think that would work. We recently went to look at a 2009 Peugeot 107 for my daughter. It only had 9000 miles on it. The body and interior were immaculate but the brakes were a corroded mess and all the rubber items were perishing. The suspension felt like it had done 10x the mileage.

 

Extreme case but if you had a 10k interval that would have never had an mot.

Some aussie States don't have an MOT; just a safety inspection when a used car is sold on.

 

I don't think French cars are for sale in Oz.
