IGA supports government decision not to enforce another MOT extension

03 November 2020

“We fully support the government’s decision to allow garages to remain open as normal, and not to enforce another MOT extension,” said Stuart James, Chief Executive of the Independent Garage Association (IGA).

James continued: “Garages are still busy catching up with the backlog of MOTs that the extension caused earlier this year. A second extension would only cause confusion among consumers and put law-abiding vehicle owners at risk of significant fines by leaving cars unchecked.

“We thank the government for their clarity on this matter ahead of the new national restrictions from 5th November. Now independent garages can continue to do what they do best – keep their customers safely on the road while providing outstanding value for money.”
