MOT testing in England

On 4 January, the government announced a new national lockdown to control the spread of coronavirus.

You can read more about the new national lockdown on GOV.UK.

What this means for MOT garages

MOT garages can remain open under the new national lockdown.

To help ensure MOT testing can be conducted safely, you can read our guidance for MOT testers about operating safely during coronavirus.

The government has issued guidance on wearing face coverings and guidance for people who work in or from vehicles, which is published on GOV.UK. 

A vehicle needs to have a valid MOT if it is being used, except for the journey to a pre-booked MOT.
