MOT RULE CHANGES
March 21st, 2018.


The MOT test will change on the 20th of May 2018, with new defect types, stricter rules for diesel car emissions, and some vehicles over 40 years old becoming exempt.


The changes will affect cars, vans, motorcycles and other light passenger vehicles.

There are 5 main changes you need to know.

1. Defects will be categorised differently

Defects found during the MOT will be categorised as either:

- dangerous

- major

- minor

The category the MOT tester gives each item will depend on the type of problem and how serious it is.

MOT testers will still give advice about items you need to monitor. These are known as ‘advisories’.
