MOT’s EXTENDED for Lorries, Buses and Trailers

26th March 2020


H&H Insurance Brokers are open for business and here for you during these challenging times.  Here is our latest COVID-19 update…

From 21 March 2020, MOT due dates for your lorry, bus or trailer will be extended by 3 months.  This is being done to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

In most cases, your vehicle or trailer will have been automatically issued a 3-month exemption, and you do not need to do anything but be aware that depending on your vehicle, you might need to apply for this – more information on the gov.uk website.

You will not receive a paper exemption certificate. Instead, your MOT will be extended by 3 months from its current due date.

You can check your MOT history to see when you have been issued an exemption. It will not be updated straight away so you should check back if the date your MOT is now due has not been updated yet.

If your tax is due, you can tax your vehicle straight away.

If this is your vehicle’s first MOT due on/after 30 March 2020 it will be automatically extended.  However, you MUST keep your vehicle safe to drive!
