Gazette readers are somewhat divided on whether or not the frequency of manditory MOT tests should be reduced.

MOTs could be required every two years rather than annually, according to proposals reportedly set out by transport secretary Grant Shapps.

In a survey conducted last week, 53.3 per cent of survey participants said that they oppose the proposal with 46.7 per cent saying they’d be infavour of it.

Whilst the broader British public are somewhat divided on the issue, the polls go the other way nationwide, with 36 opposing the idea to 48 per cent in support of it.

“The proposal to reduce the frequency of MOT testing is ill-thought-out and unsafe”, said Sue Robinson, Chief Executive of the National Franchised Dealers Association, which represents franchised vehicle dealers in the UK.
