Help put a STOP to extending the MOT period !

As you may have seen in the news, the UK government is currently evaluating a proposal to change the date a vehicle takes its first MOT test from 3 years to 4 years, the so called 4-1-1 pattern.

For many vehicles, the MOT on its 3rd anniversary is one of the most critical inspection points and with more than 300,000 vehicles failing the first MOT in 2021, a change to the MOT pattern would almost certainly lead to an increase in unsafe vehicles on UK roads, potentially resulting in more accidents, injuries and fatalities.

Extending the first MOT period also means a vehicle and its emissions go unchecked for longer, causing more harm to the environment and people, potentially costing motorists more money from worsening problems. I firmly believe that, to ensure motoring is as safe and cost-effective as possible, a vehicle should be inspected and serviced regularly.

There is a petition running that, with enough signatures, would force the government to respond to our concerns and give our industry, and others, a chance to be heard. The petition needs 10,000 signatures to reach that threshold, so I’m asking for your support to sign the petition and raise the awareness of your friends, families and colleagues to do the same.
