New online petition against 4-2-2

by

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.

Garages under threat: will the MOT schedule be changed?

The petition can be found at the Government’s e-petitions website at http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/4411.

It reads: “’The government should drop its proposals to reduce the frequency of MoT tests.

“Currently 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 ‘reduce the burden on the motorist.’”

The IAAF describes the proposed changes as ill-considered and says the MoT is crucial in keeping the UK’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.
