Here, whatís the situation around the MOT test now?

Mine is up mid May. Will probably get a reminder early to mid April.

At this stage, how long of a delay is there?

Mine is up at end of March, booked and paid as normal and got a slot on the 12th. Just got an exemption form in post today which is valid until end of July. Money to be refunded and up to me to rebook before end of July.

So how far ahead are you able to book?

I thought MOT cover notes were being sent out automatically?

Havenít got one yet, and MOT is up end of June.

Whatís the deal? Anybody else in this predicament?

I had two cars coming up on their dates and both automatically updated, previous to covid you had to book the test and then you received the extension.


I bought a car during all this and changed owner online but its near 10 weeks and no Tax book yet, anyone else have this problem?

Yes, I had to book a couple months ago for a MOT. They then sent out a cover note. But you canít book a test online now, theyíre supposed to just send you out a cover note automatically.

Also, you can check online when your MOT expires. Still says end of June

Bought  a car from prentice trade ,portadown 9th march, no log book yet ,only got through to them last week as they are back at work now,they said they are dealing with it and are to get back to me. Swansea hard to get through to doesn't help. Typed registration  into dvla website and car is  coming up as taxed and mot renewed automatically from Saturday for 6 months.

What's the idea with the 6 month exemption - my reckoning was that it was 12 months exemption unless you car is 4 years old and waiting on it's first MOT?

Yeah at the bottom of that gov website it says date last log book issues and it's still from last year is what concerns me, the last boy who had her wouldn't be happy getting my m50 notifications in

The son got a notification to say that his MOT is due on 01st October. Happy enough to have got an extra six months out of it with the lockdown.

However it says on the reminder that you can only book by phone and all you get is an instant message saying that 'Our lines are extremely busy, please try again later'. To me that is atrocious service. You wouldn't mind holding in a queue if you were going to get answered sometime. Anyone else experiencing this?

Not personally but I was talking to a boy who was ranting on facebook about it and he sounds to be in the same conundrum.

You can check when your car is due tax/mot by putting in registration. This is where Iíve seen my MOT date moved back twice. Google ďcheck car taxĒ or something.

I think this is what redzone means?
