IAM RoadSmart responds to Government's MOT proposals

Responding to the Government's proposals to maintain MOT testing frequency at its current level, IAM RoadSmart Director of Policy and Standards Nicholas Lyes said:

“An MOT gives drivers confidence their vehicle is conforming to minimum roadworthiness standards, and many see it as an essential technical health check. Well-maintained vehicles make our roads safer and reduce the chances of collisions caused by worn-out parts and more serious defects.

“We welcome the Government listening to drivers and prioritising both road safety and emissions as part of this package of announcements.”
