MoT Test First Consultation Outcome – Date of first test unchanged

26 Jan 2024

The Department for Transport consulted about amending the date of the first MOT for cars, vans and motorcycles from 3 to 4 years, as well as areas that could be considered for reform in the future. 

Given the significant concerns about road safety that were raised, and that any potential savings made by motorists would be limited by the additional cost of potential defects not identified at the MOT, the government does not intend to proceed in changing the date of a vehicle’s first MOT.
