• New MOT Law

    sub parida 9th Mar 2018 0 Comments

    Testers will grade problems as dangerous, major or minor.

    Those with just a minor fault may still be passed, while it will be illegal for a motorist to drive away with a dangerous defect.

    The minor faults are flagged on the MOT certificate with other advisory notices.

    Diesel particulate filters (DPF) will now also be checked, and you’ll be failed if you’ve had it removed or tampered with it.

    The smoke test limit will also be slashed.

    Other changes to the MOT test include the addition of a check for reverse lights, while brake discs will be inspected to see if they are “significantly or obviously worn”.
