Should MOTs Be Every Two Years?

Monday November 7 2011




THE government is exploring plans to change the rules for MoT tests which would see them switched to every two years instead of annually.

Transport secretary Philip Hammond is considering whether MoT tests for new cards could be changed to after four years (instead of three) and that subsequent tests could be every other year instead of annually.

The government say the changes may be necessary because car technologies have moved on since the rules were first introduced in 1967 - but mechanics are worried that it could affect their livelihoods.

Makes no difference, the price will just go up for the test.

All it would do is keep already dangerous car on the road and extra year putting us all at risk. The most ridiculous idea yet.
