Frustrated Motorists Against Recent MOT Changes

by | 7 Jun 2024 | News

Many angry road have users blasted the DVSA for making a mistake over the new MOT updates introduced in 2024.

The first step towards digital services began with the axing of paper MOT pass certificates on April 29 for HGV MOT tests. Within minutes, vehicle details will instead be uploaded to an online portal that can be accessed in real-time. In conjunction with Vision 2030, the DVSA is likely to expand the plan over the next few years to other types of vehicles.

It should be noted, however, that fail certificates are not yet being affected by the changes. Those who fail to meet passthe test are still receiving printed certificates.

You can now have your say on whether to back the move after widespread criticism from fellow motorists.

One member of the public commented: “Another bonehead scheme with total reliance on digital technology when everybody knows digital technology can’t be relied on.”

Another added: “So they’ll print a failed mot certificate, but a pass on request. Something is seriously wrong with these people.”
