Throughout the past year, the UK has found itself in its third lockdown due to the continuing danger posed by the coronavirus pandemic. With this, some drivers are wondering if they can still take their car to get an MOT test.
Although travel is only permitted in certain circumstances and for vital reasons, many of us still need to use our vehicle and many will have MOTs due. With this, drivers are being urged to ensure their cars have an MOT, ready for when the lockdown begins to ease.
Book Your MOT Today
While you may think it’s best to delay vehicle maintenance until restrictions are lifted, cars that are not being used regularly are often more in need of a service. Cars that are sat and unused for long periods of time can develop a range of issues, such as battery faults, seized brakes and flat tyres.
Unfortunately, unlike in the first national lockdown back in March last year, there will be no MOT extension. If your car is due an MOT, book yours in today.
Why Your Car MOT is Important
The MOT or Ministry of Transport Tests are an incredibly important part of owning a car. An MOT checks that your vehicle is safe and roadworthy. A trained mechanic will also test your exhaust emissions, produced from your vehicle, aren’t over excessive and reducing the effect it has on the environment.
It is a legal requirement to have a current MOT to drive your car on the road. If you have a new car then it won’t need a MOT test carrying out, but if it is three years old, you must take your car to have an MOT test carried out.
