DVSA STATEMENT: MOT TESTING IN WALES

DVSA have confirmed that MOT testing stations in Wales can remain open throughout the ‘firebreak’ lockdown.

Vehicles will need to be tested as normal, and can only be used on the road without a valid certificate in force if they are being driven to a test.

The full statement reads as follows:

Further to the announcement from the Welsh Government about the firebreak, a series of restrictive measures will be in place from 6pm Friday 23 October until the start of Monday 9 November 2020.

What this means for MOT garages

MOT garages can remain open.

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

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

The guidance on travelling during the firebreak is available at: https://gov.wales/coronavirus-firebreak-frequently-asked-questions#section-53263

Thank you for continuing to follow COVID-safe testing procedures to help ensure the safety of the public, your staff and DVSA staff.
