|Chiltern MOT Consultants Ltd started this petition to Grant Schapps Secretary of State for Transport
The Coronavirus has affected this country and the people and businesses in it more than any of us could have every imagined. Our government have been exemplary in stepping up and helping out with financial packages that cover most businesses and individuals so that we can ride the current storm and come out the other side.
The Retail, Hospitality and Leisure sector has been given a 12 month rates holiday and access to a cash grant of up to £25,000. Many MOT stations and garages are small, independent businesses in premises that are classified as Light Industrial. Many of them pay large rates bills. They won't receive a rates holiday or be able to access a £25,000 grant.
|The extension applies to the strict requirement for car owners to have an up to date MOT certificate. The legal requirement to keep vehicles used on the road in a roadworthy condition still applies.
This is a quote from the gov.uk website regarding the 6-month extension:
- cars, motorcycles and vans to be granted MOT exemption
- this will allow people to carry on with essential travel
- vehicles must be kept in roadworthy condition"
|So this car came in early for its MOT. It could’ve stayed on the road with the 6 months extension!!
