    Doesn’t concern our vehicles on the motability scheme, but some of you will have 2nd vehicles so thought it was worth posting over here –

    Changes include –

    • stricter limits for emissions from diesel cars with a diesel particulate filter.
    • Some new items are tested during the MOT.
    • The design of the MOT certificate has changed.
    • Some vehicles over 40 years old won’t need an MOT.

    Full details here –

    Hi lightbodyae55,

    At a guess, most things are now computerised and mot testing stations generally aren’t open on sundays. So it enables them to update the systems and make the changes with the minimum of inconvenience.
