Following the announcement that the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is looking to align the MOT test and vehicle processRAC road safety spokesperson Pete Williams said:

“Any measure that could reduce the numbers of potentially unsafe vehicles on our roads should be welcomed. It seems logical to align the MOT test to the safety recall system, but there are some practicalities which the DVSA has identified that need to be addressed to make this possible.

“While most drivers would want any potentially dangerous fault rectified as soon as possible, any process that either flags such outstanding recall issues as a warning to act on or as an MOT advisory is a very positive step for road safety.”
