Petition set up to fight government biennial MOT proposals
An online petition calling on the government to back-pedal on proposals to move the MOT to a biennial basis has already totted up 1,000 signatures in just over 24 hours and the total is climbing.

The petition, ‘Scrap cost of living' 2-year MOT plans’, is currently running on, and has been set up by members of the Automotive Support (UK) Facebook group in order to rally support from the industry and beyond to fight government plans to move the MOT to an every-other-year basis. The proposal leaked earlier this week, and has subsequently been subject to almost blanket motor sector condemnation.

One of the members of the group is Stephen Browne from Meadowfield Auto Centre, a Top Garage finalist in 2021, who said: “Members of the group decided to set up the petition to show our stance on the proposed changes, as well as to show our solidarity as an industry.”
The group hopes to reach 10,000 signatures within one week, in order to further highlight industry resistance to the plan.
