Due to the restrictions imposed to prevent the spread of COVID-19, most vehicle testing remains suspended. Some limited testing for specialist and priority vehicles is expected to resume soon. All eligible vehicles not in the priority groups will be granted a Temporary Exemption Certificate (TEC) exempting them from an MOT for 12 months. For further details, and the most up-to-date position on DVA service availability, visit the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and motoring page.
Preparing for a vehicle test
Your vehicle should be road worthy and in full working order, so it is advisable to have it checked by a mechanic before the test. You must also ensure that the exterior, interior and underparts of the vehicle are clean or the examiner may refuse to test it.
