As the country remains in lockdown, drivers who would usually be booking in with their local garage for an MOT will no longer have to thanks to the new policy.
Instead, Mallon said temporary certificates will be supplied so that the public are still able to drive their vehicles.
The infrastructure minister said: “I have decided the Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) will continue to issue temporary exemption certificates (TECs) to those vehicles, private cars, goods vehicles, trailers or motorcycles until their normal MOT date.
“This means a vehicle will get an exemption for one year which will bring it back into the system when there is capacity to test it.”
