MOT garages can remain open across all protection levels 0-4 in Scotland, the DVSA has confirmed.

It comes as 11 areas in Scotland moved into protection level four from 18:00 on Friday 20 November until Friday 11 December.

In Scotland, by law, garage and DVSA staff must wear a face covering in communal areas indoors including reception and retail areas, unless exempt.

The latest Scottish Government guidance to stop the spread of coronavirus is available on its website.

A vehicle needs to have a valid MOT if it is being used, except for the journey to a pre-booked MOT.

In a statment, the DVSA said: “To help ensure MOT testing can be conducted safely, you can read our guidance for MOT testers about operating safely during coronavirus.

“DVSA’s MOT approvals and enforcement work will also continue.

“Thank you for continuing to follow COVID-secure testing procedures to help ensure the safety of the public, your staff and DVSA staff.”
