However, industry experts have backed proposals to reintroduce testing after fears the suspension may have allowed over one million dangerous cars to remain on the roads.
Andy Randall, Managing Director of Halfords Autocentres has revealed the company has noticed a “rise” in MOT bookings over recent weeks.
He said: “Halfords have been engaging with the DfT over recent weeks and welcome this step by government, which is extremely positive for road safety.
“We firmly believe the MOT test is still the best way to ensure vehicles are safe to drive.
“Our research in recent weeks showed 45 of motorists were concerned about the condition of other vehicles yet only two percent felt there might be an issue with their own, indicating a worrying false sense of security may have been taking hold for many drivers.”
