    The new MOT test 2018.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 16 Jul 2018, 11:20 am

    What's changed, everything you need to know and how it will affect you.

    THE MOT test was updated on Sunday, May 20th, 2018 and will affect every driver in some way every motorist in the UK.

    Here are the new rules, how it will affect you and what you need to know about the changes.

    The main new update is the introduction of three new fault categories that grade the severity of a cars fault - Minor, Major and Dangerous.

    Minor faults are similar to advisory notices on the old test and refer to a fault that you can still pass with but will need to be addressed in the future.

    Both Major and Dangerous faults refer to issues that result in immediate failures.

    Where the two fault differs is a Major fault will need to be fixed before the car can pass its test but the driver is permitted to drive the car away to another garage to have the work done.

    Read the rest of the details about this change to the MOT at The Daily Express site HERE




    Because this is so new it is suspected that some MOT garages might be tempted to rip off their customers.

    Get all the information you need to avoid this risk from the link, above.

    I often think that these people just sit all day and try to figure out how to make our lives more difficult.

    We have to put a lot of faith and trust into the government licenced test centres and if any of them look as if they are trying to hoodwink or overcharge us they should immediately lose their licence.

    Have to agree with that Zathrus.

    We should be able to trust all of the MOT licencing centres.

    Don't need to worry too much about the new MOT tests as I don't have a car yet, but I still appreciate the information non-the-less.

    Being "informed" certainly makes our lives easier and safer.
