Thank you for the communication, very disappointed that DVSA have been unusually quiet & have made no contact with advice for testing stations, we are currently open as until DVSA suspend testing, people require an MOT.

First of all there is no work secondly if I could work suppliers are closed or have no parts in stock which makes a farce of keeping motor factors supplied
