What else is being inspected?
The new MOT format means that, while every component defect is categorised differently than before, there have been a few additions – most notably, changes involving diesel exhaust emissions and vehicle structure. The MOT sections have changed, too.
The following list is based on scrutinising a draft version of the MOT Inspection manual. The final version was unavailable at the time of writing and is unlikely to be completed until very close to the implementation date. Even then, further changes are likely to follow afterwards, as practical problems are ironed out.
