The Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMI) has put its support behind the proMOTe campaign against changes to the MoT test schedule.

The industry body says that 25 organisations have joined together to oppose any change to the MoT test schedule. Those organisations represent motorists, cyclists, small businesses, and insurers.

RMI director Stuart James said: “Record levels of cars and vans are failing their MoTs. Maintenance standards are slipping due to the lack of money car users currently have at their disposal.

“If the annual MoT was to change system road user safety would be detrimentally affected. Evidence shows that more than 250 additional road deaths and more than 2,200 additional serious injuries could occur every year if the frequency change was to go ahead.

“The RMI backs the ProMOTe campaign because it is taking the message to the consumer and defends road user safety.”

The RMI says it will continue to take a leading role in the fight against MoT changes. It also says it will continue to lobby the Government on the matter.
