Find an approved garage
Coronavirus - if your car needs an MOT
If your car was due an MOT after 30 March, you’ll automatically get a 6-month extension. You should make sure your car is safe to drive or ‘roadworthy’ during this time. You can still go to a garage or mechanic if you need repairs.

It's a good idea to use an approved car garage for work on your car, such as a service, repair or MOT.
These garages are all approved by the Motor Industry Code of Practice for Service and Repair.
They all have clear complaints procedures, so if something goes wrong you'll have a better chance of resolving your problem.
It also means you can complain through a trade association if you can't work it out with the garage.
Search for a garage that is accredited by The Motor Ombudsman.
