Millions more customers will need MOT tests this autumn – double as many as usual.
Motorists were granted MOT exemptions for their vehicles from 30 March until 1 August.
Those exemptions will begin to expire in autumn, which is usually the busiest period for MOTs.
Alongside your normal MOT customers for this time of year, there will be many more wanting to get tests as their exemptions expire.
Are you ready for the rush?
Demand for tests will peak in October and November, but September and December will also be very busy. We’re currently predicting that August will be quieter than usual.
That means we may be able to persuade drivers to get their MOT test early. This will give them peace of mind that their vehicle is safe and roadworthy, and will mean they beat the rush in autumn.
For garages, this approach will help you to manage demand and make sure you can meet your customer’s needs during a very busy period.
But we can only do this with your help.
