Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive responds to bi-annual MOT proposals
Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said: "The industry shares the widespread concern over rising prices and the squeeze on household incomes.
"Safety, however, must always come first and, whilst today's vehicles are more reliable than ever, regular MOTs ensure safety-critical components such as brakes and tyres, which wear out as a result of normal operation, are properly inspected and maintained.
"Stretching MOT intervals will undermine the safety net at a time when vehicle miles driven are increasing. To ensure the safety of our roads, drivers, passengers, pedestrians and other road users, inspections and maintenance must be carried out annually following their first presentation in year three."
