21 Aug Huge spike in MOT tests – 20,000 extra every day throughout August so far

  • MOT Bay InstallThe latest DVSA figures show that an extra 20,000 MOT tests have been conducted every day so far this month.
  • Garages have been pushed to their limits with the number of MOTs they are performing every day.

At the beginning of August, the DVSA predicted twice as many MOT tests would take place leading into September and the rest of the Autumn period.

With an exceptional rise seen in August already, a new prediction of 200% above the normal levels of testing is now predicted at the peak of this recovery.

In its Matter of Testing blog, the DVSA said: “We know August has been busy for MOT garages, and our figures so far show around 20,000 more MOT tests a day have been conducted [vs. the same time last year].”

With the volume of MOT tests set to continue shooting upwards before peaking in October and November, the question is being asked if supply can keep up with demand.
