Apparently, March is the most popular month for getting your car through its MOT according to a recent survey. The report was commissioned by a leading high street MOT provider who claims to carry out more than 400,000 MOT’s every year.
 
Interestingly the average cost to keep you car roadworthy and on the road is around £72. That doesn’t seem like much does it? In addition, government figures show that the incidence of MOT failure is increasing year on year, but that these failures could be easily avoided by simply checks by the owner.
 
On a related note this March will be an even more special month for MOT’s as the government a due to introduce some minor changes to the test. What will be happen is that test carried out on cars, vans, HGVs, buses and coaches will now include some additional checks for the brakes, steering, suspension and lighting. Of course, as we all known these items are already checked during the existing test but now they will be a little more thorough and in line with some revise European Legislation. The idea is basically that the test keeps up with current technology to ensure the vehicles on the road are safe.
 
Good news for the consumer though is that it will not cost us a penny more and the price of an MOT will stay the same.
