ABD Urges the Government NOT to Extend MOT Intervals
Vehicle safety will be compromised by changing the current 3 years/1 year to 4 years/2years.
The MOT is the only occasion that many cars ever visit a garage. Extending the MOT intervals could allow safety related defects to go undetected.

ABD Chairman Brian Gregory said:
“The Government are promoting extended MOT intervals as cost saving measure for motorists. We suggest that excessive fuel tax and the punitive rates of Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) are the major financial burdens that motorists face. Reducing motoring taxes is the first place to start for any government that is genuinely concerned about the cost of motoring and wouldn't risk compromising road safety.”
