Scrapping annual MOT could mean increased costs

The Governments plans to scrap the current regime of MOT testing could increase the costs for motorists

Research by the Pro-MOTe campaign highlights that moving from the current 3-1-1 MOT system (cars over three years are checked every year) to a more European 4-2-2 system (where cars over 4 years old are tested every 2 years) could mean an increase in annual costs to every motorist of £57 in addition to the £1.44bn lost in jobs and tax revenue.

The extra cost would comprise of additional repair, insurance and fuel. Pro-MOTe is an organisation setup to call on Minsters to rule out a reduction in MOT frequency.
