The MOT is a legal requirement that checks and helps assure drivers that their vehicles are safe. It forms an integral part of DVSA’s strategic aim of keeping vehicles safe to drive. Unfortunately, a minority of perpetrators have been caught defrauding the MOT. DVSA’s Director of Enforcement Marian Kitson issues a warning to anyone considering endangering road users by committing MOT fraud and the consequences they will face should they choose to.
