Jeremy Vine says MOT test rules are ‘tough’ as road users worry about losing their car

However, officials have taken a tough stance on the measures confirming if tax expires they would need to take their vehicle off the road through a statutory off road notification (SORN). 

This is likely because garages have not officially been shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic and no exemption has yet been granted for cars and light vehicles. 

After highlighting a listeners concern regarding a possible MOT shutdown, Jeremy Vine sauid: “They are being pretty tough on it.”

The issue concerned road user James Parry who said online: “What if the car is not driveable and waiting repair? 

“The local garage is unable to source parts, understaffed and due to close. We do not need to drive the car, but we can’t get it off the road. 

“Is there a sign we can download from the DVLA to display on the car?”
