Government decides to keep existing MOT frequencies
Following a review of the existing arrangements for MOT tests and their frequency, the Government has decided to maintain the current rules. Announcing the decision on Wednesday, the Secretary of State for Transport, Justine Greening, also announced that more pressure would be exerted to improve the reliability and standards of all garages, not just those that conduct MOTs. The Secretary of State also announced that hitherto unpublished Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) survey data would be made available as to whether the sector is complying with test standards; this may be viewed here. MOT certificates will also be changed so that they carry the last three years’ mileage information.
