UK MOT Changes 2018


On the 20th May 2018, new MOT rules were introduced as part of the EU’s roadworthiness directive. Due to the UK still being a full member of the union despite voting the leave, the rules have therefore stayed in full effect until future changes are made. Many vehicles owners won’t even be aware of these changes, especially if their car passed with no advisories after the 20th May 2018. Anyway, it’s always a good idea to know what to look out for when the MOT day nears closer.
