You're probably right about it being a cheap soundbite, but all the same 4-1-1 is a real prospect, so make sure the protests are loud and plentiful.

DfT's own analysis has shown increased road deaths and serious injuries will result from increasing the time to a vehicle's first MOT, and if enough noise is made about that, which politician will want to be the one to put their name to it? The last time it came up, Justine Greening very wisely kicked it straight into touch.

So when the time comes, make a lot of noise.

however we all know what a consultation actually is don't we?our opinions will be"listened to carefully"but the main driver will be how many votes the party concerned thinks it can garner as there are millions of motorists the majority of which can vote.this aint just conservative,labour had a bash at summat similar a decade or so earlier.trouble is its a one shot weapon,whats their alternative after?5 1 1?as a result it will probably be saved for an election that looks too close to call.for those who think me cynical mystic robs prediction is that if introduced it will predate an election closely enough to fit the above criteria.i hope as always to be proved wrong.....road safety is a bit too important to be turned into a political soundbyte

The DVSA prematurely announced yesterday a DfT Consultation on cars' first MOT Test being changed from three years to four, but when those receiving the communication tried to follow the link provided, it turned out to be a link to a driving test consultation.
Reassuring!
However, we hear that the consultation is imminent, so keep your eyes out for it and MAKE YOUR VIEWS KNOWN!

The AE at work has recently received an email about Learner drivers using the motorway for lessons, as well as a consultation about moving the MOT test to the first at 4 years and then every year after that.

When reading the email, the only links contained within are those that related to the "learners on motorway" section and nothing to do with the 4-1-1 scheme.

As an NT I have not received the same email and wondered if anyone else has had similar and have been able to find any details on the consultation.

Cheers!
