MOT warning as UK fleets return
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is encouraging drivers whose vehicle MOT is due this autumn to book their vehicle in as soon as possible to beat the expected rush for tests.
The warning comes as data from vehicle tracking systems supplier Quartix shows UK fleet activity levels returning to normal following the COVID-19 national lockdown period.
Quartix reports that its UK fleet customers are now travelling 91 per cent of the ‘norm’, established using data from before the lockdown period.
“The MOT is an important test to make sure a vehicle remains safe to drive,” said Chris Price, DVSA Head of MOT Policy. “We know that MOT centres are likely to be very busy this autumn with double the usual demand. We are encouraging motorists to consider bringing their MOT forward to help beat the rush.”
