Keep MOT tests as a yearly requirement

Petition Details

We want the Government to maintain the yearly MOT tests for all classes of vehicle that currently require one.

Additional Information

Requiring an MOT every 2 years has been suggested as an attempt to reduce the cost of living for U.K. citizens with cars. However with 33% of cars already failing their first MOT, we feel the risk to public safety would be significant. The changes would also be extremely detrimental to the MOT and garage industry and could result in job loses of workers at the estimated 23,000 MOT testing stations, and numerous garages could be forced to close nationally if the demand for the MOT was to drop every 2 years. Don’t risk public safety but cutting safety measures.
