Will my vehicle or trailer need a test in October 2020?
Mandatory tests will be required for vehicles and trailers which do not qualify for a longer exemption. These are:
- Vehicles with an original test date in April 2020
- Vehicles with an original test date in July 2020
Where can I find out my current test date?
Operators can use MOT test history to confirm vehicle test expiry dates.
The DVSA continue to remind ATFs about the vehicle/trailer tests they should prioritise. The highest priority are those which legally need a test.
- Vehicles/trailers legally due a test within a month
- Vehicles/trailers going on international journeys
- Dangerous goods vehicles
- Specialist vehicle types (e.g. refuse vehicles, gritters)
- Prohibition clearances
Can’t book a test?
The DVSA will be making more testing staff available to ATFs at short notice. So, it’s worth checking availability several times with a range of ATFs.
