I last updated you on what we’re doing to improve the MOT testing service on 7 July. Thanks for all your feedback. We do read it all and try and take it on board but I’m sorry that we don’t …
Neil Barlow is the Head of MOT Policy at DVSA.
We’re developing an MOT reminder service to help vehicle owners get their vehicle tested on time as part of our strategy to help people keep their vehicle safe to drive.
You told us you wanted to know more about what we’re adding to the MOT testing service and what happens when it’s taken offline in the evenings.
So, this will be the first in a series of regular blogs that looks at what we've been working on behind the scenes.
Everyone involved in the MOT industry has a part to play in maintaining testing standards.
By working together we’re all making sure that the vehicles on our roads are safe.
It's easy to get caught up in thinking how we should improve the MOT testing service, but it’s also worth reflecting on the importance of the MOT itself and the vital contribution you’re making to road safety.
We know that when the MOT testing service is unavailable, your priority is to get a contingency code so that you can carry on working. So that’s why we’ve created a new page which you can visit to see the service’s current status.
