Book early for MOTs in September, October & November!
Monday 23rd August 2021
It’s that time of year again where we are entering into an extremely busy MOT period. For MOTs due in September through to November we’d advise all of our customers to book their date early to ensure we are able to do your MOT at the correct time.
Why is it busy for MOTs?
The reason for the increased volume of MOTs during this time is because of the MOT extension during the initial COVID-19 Pandemic lockdown, MOT s due at the end of March were given a 6 month extension, meaning that those that took the extension are now due. Typically September and October were busy MOT months anyway due to new car registrations starting in September. This will be an ongoing challenge for garages for the next 3-5 years until it re-settles back down.
How can I check when my MOT is due?
Its really easy to check your own vehicle MOT expiry date (and also when the road tax expires) using the government website by CLICKING HERE!
Can anything be done about this to help me in the future?
You don’t have to do anything at all, but you could change the MOT date yourself. There are no rules about doing the MOT at a different time providing you don’t let the MOT expire on your vehicle. If you were to book the MOT for April next year for example, it’s now the quietest month for MOTs!
