Changes to the MOT Test – effective 20 May 2018
DVSA have made significant changes to the MOT Test. There will now be three defect categories:
- Dangerous – Fail
- Major – Fail
- Minor – Pass
“Major” issues can mean the car is still safe to drive,
“Dangerous” vehicles should not be driven at all.
Driving a Vehicle That’s Failed
DVLA state that the only time you are allowed to drive your car after it has failed a test is on the way to have failed defects fixed, or on the way to a pre-booked MOT appointment.
If your car fails the MOT it is now immediately recorded on the national database as no longer road legal, regardless of how long the previous MOT’s validity has remaining. The penalty can be a fine of up to £2,500, a driving ban and 3 penalty points for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition. It would also invalidate your insurance.
