New rules in England are set to come into force today that will alter the way we go about our daily business to stem the spread of the coronavirus. It includes non-essential retailers being forced to close and people are asked to stay at home whenever possible. But what does Lockdown 2 mean for servicing and MOTs?

Car Servicing and MOTs during Lockdown 2
Even with lockdown measures in force, MOT testing centres are allowed to remain open. If your vehicle needs an MOT, you’ll still be able to book one and take the test. Lockdown 2 coincides with the end to the MOT extension brought in during the previous lockdown, so be sure to leave time to get your car an appointment before the MOT expires as we will have more demand.
Should I put off my vehicle service or MOT?
No: your vehicle requires a valid MOT by law, and as there is no extension to MOT rules during this second lockdown, you need to make sure your vehicle is tested and certified if you plan to use it or you could get a fine or penalty points on your licence if it is driven without a valid MOT certificate.
If your vehicle is coming up for a routine service, even if you don’t plan to drive it much, it’s still best to have it booked in. Our Ellesmere Port garage has introduced strict new health and safety measures so we can keep open safely during lockdown 2, and your car will need to be checked even if it’s not been used for a while.
