First MOT at 4 years

During the 2015 budget Mr Osborne announced that new cars will not need an MOT until they are four years, a year longer than the current three years.

Has this come into effect and if so does it apply to cars that are not yet 3 years old or only to cars first registered after a certain date? Does 'cars' include motor homes?

sorry I should have researched it more. Further reading has shown it is only an intention and is being put out for consultation. My guess is that the trade, who have a vested interest, will ensure that this does not happen.

as you say in your 3rd paragraph Ray, the trade don't like it! Even before the "consultation" has statrted, a search of "MOT 4 years" comes up with loads of aruments against it.
Looks like a non-starter

As far as I know, the only motorhoming Oxford United supporter in Felpham.

I don't feed trolls!

Can I add onto this thread a question about pre- 1960 cars no longer needing an MOT.


Don't be silly all the time ask your question.
