The extensions will be applied automatically, and operators are reminded that they can use the online MOT history service to check the test status of their vehicles.

The agency also says that it is talking to stakeholders, including staff, vehicle operators, ATF providers and repair workshops, with a view to devising a safe testing service that will enable the recommencement of normal regular testing during June, and will provide more information in due course.
