Motor Vehicles: Testing

Volume 460: debated on Wednesday 23 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he plans (a) to introduce bi-annual MOTs and (b) to increase the age of new cars to four years before the first MOT becomes due; and if he will make a statement. (138814)

We will be consulting shortly on options for the future conduct of the MOT scheme—and specifically about the frequency of testing—following a recommendation that we do so in the Davidson Review of the implementation of EU legislation. This consultation will include a full discussion of the potential advantages and disadvantages of making any change to test frequency.
