MOT's to be suspended for [up to] 6 months

Post by SAC1 » Wed Mar 25, 2020 12:59 pm

The government today have announced that all cars and motorcycles due their MOT on March 30th 2020 or after have now got an additional six months to be tested. This takes an enormous strain off the motor industry. For more information on these temporary changes to the law please see https://www.gov.uk/…/coronavirus-covid- ... r-cars-van
On order 2020 model GTS in Sapphire for April delivery.
Current 2017 SD in Rhodium Silver.

My MOT and initial 3 year warranty are due/expire on July 1. My plan was to take out an extended 2 year Porsche warranty and as required, get the 111 point check and MOT all done at the same. Does anyone know if the MOT is a requirement for getting the extended warranty?

It isn’t. You can take out the extended warranty before the three years is up.

No it isn’t. Given the Cambridge OPC has closed for coved I would book my vehicle in with your OPC, within the qualifying period, and then it is for them to cancel. Leaving a record in their system that you’ve tried to comply.
