MOT Extensions. Lets be clear!


Hi all.

Last week the government announced that during the present crisis they would extend MOTs that became due by six months. From conversations with our customers there seems to be some confusion as to how this works.

Simply put. As your MOT becomes due DVSA will extend it from the date of expiry by six months. This will be done around a week before the expiry date. So if your MOT expires on say the first of May DVSA will extend it around seven days beforehand. This extension may be subject to change in terms of time period, or may even be stopped as and when the government decides to ease the current ” lockdown ”

I hope this clarifies the situation. I have copied below a statement from our trade body the IGA.

Hope you all stay safe and well.

The Motorvation team.


IGA : Further clarification on six-month MOT extension

Whilst it may be understandable that the information given out by the Government is not always as clear as it could be, given how quick things are changing with the current emergency, it is worth looking at what is known about this process.

The headline statement published on was:

“….Your car, van or motorcycle’s MOT expiry date will be extended by 6 months if it’s due on or after 30 March 2020 – but you must keep your vehicle safe to drive.”

The public would understandably think that the headline meant that every vehicle has automatically been given a six-month extension on their MOT, but this is not necessarily the case.

This exemption will only be applied approximately 7 days ahead of the expiry date of the certificate. DVSA will then work to extend dates on a weekly basis for those vehicles that are due a test.

What it doesn’t mean though, is that for instance, a vehicle due its MOT on 1 June 2020 will not have its expiry date changed at the moment. This vehicle will still have a 1 June 2020 expiry date until such time that DVSA extend it, which is likely to be only a week before the expiry date. We have been informed that this will allow them to be flexible and potentially change extension periods, or stop the extensions at any time when it is deemed no longer necessary.

COVID 19 and Motorvation

Along with the rest of the country we at Motorvation have to face the reality of the effects that the Coronovirus is having, and could have on the lives of ourselves and you, our customers.

First and foremost.

We are here. And open !

However in all our interests we ask all of our customers to make sure that they have protected both themselves and us by making sure that they have followed the guidelines as regards their hand washing and other measures to protect themselves goes.

Furthermore we would be grateful, that if possible you ensure your car is as virus free as possible. This can be done by using an anti viral spray such as Dettol surface cleaner. This should be sprayed on the steering wheel, gearshift and centre console area and door handles. If you are taking one of our loan cars these will have been treated before you drive it.

If you are unable to prepare your car this way, please let us know so we can take appropriate measures before we drive your car.

If you are in isolation, or displaying the symptoms of the virus :

Please do not visit us. We will NOT be able to serve you.

Further Covid 19 Precautions.

In a further attempt to reduce the spread of coronavirus and safeguard the ourselves and our customers we have introduced additional measures to enable us to adapt our way of working so as to continue as normally as possible.

Please do NOT enter the office.

We will come to you.

If you are making a payment by card we ask that you remain at the door. We will ask you for the card details etc and process the payment without asking you for your PIN.
We will also disinfect your vehicle before we enter it or carry out any work to it. All our loan cars are disinfected before and after use.
Thanks for your understanding.


The Motorvation team.
