MOT extension – what if it fails?

MOT extension – what if it fails?

Please be aware that if you have an MOT carried out on your vehicle during your 6 month extension period and the vehicle fails the test the exemption is no longer valid. This means you cannot continue to drive the vehicle until it has the failures fixed and it is retested.

Vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition and drivers can be prosecuted if they drive an unsafe vehicle.

DVSA has published guidance about the 6-month MOT exemption which can be viewed here.
