Confused.com car insurance expert Alex Kindred said: “While the COVID-19 MOT exemption was a weight off drivers’ shoulders, as things return to normal, it’s important to keep our renewal date at the front of our mind.
“According to our research nearly one in ten of drivers told us they don’t know when their MOT is due for renewal. Driving without a valid MOT could land you with a £2500 fine, three penalty points, and a possible driving ban.
"It could also invalidate your insurance, leaving you without cover.
"With a surge in demand predicted for September it is more important than ever if you do need to book in you do so quickly to ensure your vehicle is fit to drive.”
