New Research suggests almost two-thirds of fleets would not support extending the first MOT from three years to four. Government proposals, published in January, include changing the frequency of the vehicle safety test and improving the monitoring of emissions to tackle pollution. Fleets fear that changing the current testing regime would be detrimental to road safety and suggest that vehicle mileages should be taken into account, rather than just the age of a car or van. An online fleet poll showed a significant majority (59%) of respondents did not support changing the date when a first MOT is required. Two-in-five (39.2%) were in favour of the change.
