As Coronavirus restrictions lift here in the UK, the Government has announced the reintroduction of mandatory MOT testing from 1st August 2020.
It was previously announced that a six-month extension would apply to vehicles with tests due from 30th March 2020, giving drivers peace of mind during the initial Coronavirus outbreak. With businesses, and indeed the automotive industry, reopening for business, albeit with social-distancing measures, this extension has now been stopped.
This means that all MOTs due from 1st August 2020 must be undertaken as normal, and will not receive the extension, so do check when your MOT is due to ensure your vehicle remains road legal.
It’s important to add that despite the extensions, it is still the driver’s responsibility to keep an eye on the road-worthiness of their vehicle. Any issues must be dealt with as normal, so if you have any concerns about the safety of your vehicle, please call our teams to get booked in as soon as you can.
Who is eligible for the extension?
Cars, motorcycles, and light vehicles with MOT dates due between 30th March and 31st July 2020 only will receive an automatic six-month extension.
If you have any questions about your vehicle, or wish to speak to our service team for more information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We understand that there is a lot of information to take in right now, so please let us know if we can help in any way. Don’t forget, you will need to make an appointment prior to any visit to a Vindis Group centre, so we can ensure social distancing within our businesses. We thank you for your continued cooperation.

All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
