We have heard that an announcement will be made very soon - hopefully on Monday next week - about the MOT review. We'll keep you posted on anything we hear.

Hi what is this all about if you read the directive from good old EU land you would see the UK government signed up to this around 2 years ago there seems no going back now. All this sign up at no 10 etc getting no surport so why why are you shouting about it now, time for that was 3 years ago. Yes in the true EU story line it is boring very to read.:( But the ones making the noise should read then start to shout.

I've heard that one or more member states have spoken out in favour of our current 3-1-1 frequency ;)

A wide ranging group of organisations have come together in a campaign in opposition to the Government’s plans to reduce MOT Testing frequency, and to delay a vehicle’s first MOT until it is four years old. This strong coalition of organisations concerned with road safety, representing the interests of motorists (the AA and the RAC), together with prominent trade bodies within the motor trade feel strongly that the current annual MOT Testing regime with a vehicle’s first MOT on its third birthday should be retained.

The campaign, identified by a ‘ProMOTe' logo and a strapline – "Keeping Britain’s roads safe for all”, was launched on Thursday 27th October. Their website at
http://www.pro-mote.org.uk provides visitors with the opportunity to sign up to a petition to maintain the current MOT regime which has made such a significant contribution to road safety over the years. If you too believe that any dilution of MOT fequency is, dangerous, expensive and unwanted, follow the link and sign the ProMOTe petition.

If you are involved in the MOT Industry you really should be supporting this campaign - log on to this site and show your support! Go to the link and SIGN THE PETITION.

Number signed to date (3/11/11): 370 – There are at least 50,000 people working in the MOT industry
as at:
4/11/11: 476
5/11/11: 597
7/11/11: 655
8/11/11: 711
10/11/11: 862
15/11/11: 963
22/11/11: 1004
25/11/11: 1059
Let's see some support!
