The IAAF is encouraging the industry and motorists to sign a new online petition which calls on the Government to abandon plans for a change in the frequency of MoT test.
The petition can be found at the Governmentâ€™s e-petitions website at http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/4411.
It reads: â€œ’The government should drop its proposals to reduce the frequency of MoT tests.
â€œCurrently vehicles are tested when they reach the third anniversary of registration, and are then tested annually (so called 3-1-1). The government (DfT) has proposed a change to first test at four years and then retest every other year (4-2-2) and claim it would â€˜reduce the burden on the motorist.â€™â€
The IAAF describes the proposed changes as ill-considered and says the MoT is crucial in keeping the UKâ€™s cars safe and environmentally compliant.
It says a relaxation of the intervals would increase road casulaties and pollution and was ruled out the last time it was considered in 2008.
