Letter about MOT extensions due to coronavirus (COVID-19) (Great Britain only)

 

MOTs have been extended due to coronavirus. The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has updated its electronic records, but has not issued new paper documents, therefore when you make international journeys, a copy of this letter from DVSA that explains your MOT has been extended must be carried.

 

This letter has been shared with the European Commission.

 

You should also carry:

  • a printed copy of the email confirmation you received from DVSA if you were given a 12-month extension
  • a print of the vehicle record from the service to check the MOT history of a vehicle - this shows the new expiry date
