Who does it apply to?
HGV users; tests fall due 12 months after first registration. Anyone running a van that is more than three years old.
Who enforces it?
It is not legal to run a vehicle that is not covered by a valid MOT unless to the test station. Using a vehicle without a valid MOT can result in a fine of £1,000.
Current DfT consultations suggest removing the testing exemptions on electric vehicles, mobile cranes and breakdown vehicles, among others.
