MOT Extension for 6 months

Post by Fordoholic Nick » Thu Mar 26, 2020 9:04 am

Hi all.

First and most important I hope everyone is safe and well :)

Guys any MOT due after March 30th will automatically be extended for 6 months due to the situation at the moment. B112 was due on April 24th so I don't need to panic but will of course get it done at the earliest opportunity. Here's a link.

Thank you Nick, yes there are a couple of threads already about this. But always worthwhile mentioning something so important.

After posting the other thread about the exemption I checked my own cars and my little Polo runabout ran out on 21st March so no extension. Bummer.

Got it booked in for 12.00 today.

:goodluck: Paul

My son got his done yesterday as it expired tomorrow, bit unlucky really just when it helps to save £50 or so!

That's great news Paul, but hardly surprising that a car owned by you would pass!

Is this just an option or has the system actually been suspended, as the last I saw my station was still open? (JUst thinking this would be a good time to sort out any small advisories etc, not Capri obviously :) , while there`s absolutely nothing else to do, you can`t drive it - and I`m getting cabin fever..)
