A vehicle that needs a particulate filter and doesn’t have one should fail its MOT. If you pass it knowing that it doesn’t have one, you’re harming the environment and committing fraud.
Danny is the Product Manager for the MOT testing service at DVSA.
Last year, I told you about the work we're doing to make technical information available on the MOT testing service.
This information will help you test vehicles safely and correctly.
We’ve received lots of feedback about making technical information about specific vehicles available on the MOT testing service. We’ve already done some work to investigate how we can introduce this to the MOT testing service and we’ve planned more work for the near future.
