Given the circumstances I'm granting an MOT temporary exemption so that if your MOT is due from 30th March 2020 you will automatically receive a SIX-month extension. However, you must still keep your car in a roadworthy condition and garages will remain open if you need repairs.

Coronavirus: Drivers to get 6 month exemption on MOTs under emergency measures. 

 

What happens to road tax, will they alter the system allowing people to renew the tax as well?

Because of the six month MOT extension there is no reason why people should not be able to renew their road tax when it is due.

The government has just announced a 6 month extension for MOTs due after 30th March. Mine is due 28th March, and as I’m over 70 and in self isolation, so not allowed out, does anyone know how I get my car tested. The tax runs out on the 31st March, so if I can’t get it sorted, the car will have to go off road. Help

You could call not garage and see if they will pick your car up and drop off aterwards,but it may be to late to get it booked in at short notice.

Do they just mean the outside of the car, the parts that you can see?

All of it mate. It's an offence to drive a vehicle on a public highway if it is not in a roadworthy condition. That is whether the vehicle has a valid MOT or not.

That's going to be fun in September for the test stations. September is also a very busy time for test stations without doing the March ones too. Quick question for anyone out there, why do you leave your MOT's till the last minute? You do realise you can have it tested up to one Month early and not lose your original expiry date.
