New MOT cat­e­gories

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

NEW MOT cat­e­gories have been in­tro­duced.

Dan­ger­ous is “a di­rect and im­me­di­ate risk to road safety”. The ve­hi­cle should not be driven un­til it’s been re­paired. This will be a fail.

Also a fail is some­thing deemed as “ma­jor” as it may af­fect the ve­hi­cle’s safety or put other road users at risk. Re­pair it im­me­di­ately.

Mi­nor faults should be re­paired as soon as pos­si­ble. Any­thing that is an “ad­vi­sory” should be mon­i­tored and re­paired if nec­es­sary.

A pass means that the ve­hi­cle meets the min­i­mum le­gal stan­dard.
