2018 MOT changes - what you need to know
Did you know that on the 20th May 2018, some changes have been made to the MOT test?
The changes affect not just cars, but vans, motorcycles and other light passenger vehicles too.

Previously there were just pass, fail or advisory. There will now be additional categories to determine whether a vehicle will fail or pass: Dangerous, Major, Minor, Advisory and Pass
2. There are stricter rules for Diesel car emissions
3. Some new things are included in the MOT
This includes reversing lights, tyre pressure, fluid leaks and more.
4. The MOT certificate will change
This is to make it clearer and easier to understand, so that any defects are clearly listed.
