“There will also undoubtedly be more challenging periods for businesses in between, such as in April and May, due to the knock-on effect of motorists using the government’s six-month MOT extension introduced in response to the pandemic.”
Mr Fennell added: “Even if consumers have done less mileage in the 12 months leading up to their MOT, and with more test failures on the horizon, as our study has shown, it remains crucial for vehicle owners to sign up for the free MOT reminders and get the test completed on time or earlier to avoid compromising their own safety, and that of others when on the road.”
Recent data from BookMyGarage showed MOT emissions failures have also increased in recent years.
Almost 1.3million vehicles failed their emissions tests in 2019-20 compared to just 745,000 back in 2017-2018 before tougher emissions rules were introduced.
