MOT exemptions to take effect from March 30

New Department for Transport (DfT) legislation will offer the grace period to allow critical workers to continue with essential travel.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said: “We must ensure those on the frontline of helping the nation combat COVID-19 are able to do so.

“Allowing this temporary exemption from vehicle testing will enable vital services such as deliveries to continue, frontline workers to get to work, and people to get essential food and medicine.”

Once the new rules are in place vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition and drivers can be prosecuted if their cars are deemed unsafe.

Mr Shapps said: “Safety is key, which is why garages will remain open for essential repair work.”
