MOT covid pandemic extensions.

If your MOT certificate ran out between 30 March 2020 and 31 July 2020, it will have been extended by six months as a result of the Covid pandemic. 

You must get an MOT before the extended date runs out.  If it is due on, or after, 1 August 2020 you need to book a MOT.
