Martin Lewis has urged millions of drivers to check when their MOT is due.

This is due to the fact that the government is ending its MOT extension scheme.

MOT tests will be recommencing on August 1, bringing an end to the period of automatic exemption, the Department for Transport has announced.

The scheme was originally brought in to keep key workers on the move during the coronavirus crisis, reports Liverpool Echo.

Martin said: "Compulsory testing restarts next week in England, Scotland and Wales.

"If your MOT is due on or after 1 August, it's business as usual.

"Yet for MOTs due between 30 March and 31 July, you automatically have six months added on top, eg, 24 July becomes 24 January 2021.

"In Northern Ireland testing's still on hold, and MOTs have been extended by 12 months."

How the six-month extension works

Your vehicle’s MOT expiry date will be automatically extended by six months if it’s eligible. This will be done about seven days before it’s due to expire.

This means that:

Your vehicle will still have a valid MOT certificate for an extra six months

You can still tax your vehicle - you might need to wait to do this until later in the month if both your MOT and vehicle tax run out this month

Your insurance will still be valid

Your vehicle’s record will be updated so the police can see you have a valid MOT

You will not get a new paper MOT certificate with the new expiry date on it.
