MOT test to be reviewed

The Retail Motor Industry (RMI) has announced the formation of an MOT Working Group, to discuss MOT policy and the future of the test.

The group, chaired by RMI’s MOT Chairman John Ball, will meet for the first time in November, and will include representatives from a broad cross-section of the MOT testing industry.

Following an announcement from the Department for Transport that the 50 year old MOT test will be subject to a review later this year, the RMI met with Mike Penning MP, and were asked to advise on the issues affecting the industry and the implications of an MOT review.

The RMI has more MOT stations in membership than any other trade organisation and is taking the leading trade role to ensure that the trade’s interests are looked after.  The working group will provide a forum for discussion of MOT policy and allow for dialogue on the safety issues surrounding the MOT test.
