Emergency MOT tests available in Northern Ireland

Test could move to every other year for cars under 10 years old

Emergency MOT tests available in Northern Ireland

Motorists in Northern Ireland are being advised to book an emergency MOT test to avoid “costly fines”.

This comes as the Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) said drivers face a 72-day wait for an MOT test.

Posting on Facebook, Claire Sugden, an independent politician for East Londonderry, said: “Unfortunately booking an MOT test remains difficult for many across Northern Ireland.

“If you do not have a valid MOT you are currently unable to tax your vehicle which could lead to costly fines.

“In order to assist those who cannot get a test booked in time for their car tax expiring, the DVA have launched a new form where you can request an urgent MOT test.

“These tests are only available to those whose tax has expired or is due to expire in the next 10 days.”

Last week, the SDLP opposition in Northern Ireland proposed a move to MOT testing every other year for cars under 10 years old to address significant waiting times.
