MOT test changes: are you prepared

From Sunday 20 May 2018, the MOT will be changing.

There are 3 new defect categories –  dangerous, major and minor. A dangerous or major fault will result in an MOT fail.

There will also be tighter limits on smoke for diesel vehicles to help improve air quality.

Vehicles more than 40 years old without substantial changes will be exempt from having an MOT.
