You normally do the consultations before you make the announcements...

I'm trying to calculate what its going to cost me!
There will at some point be a "lean" year where we don't test three year old cars.The year after that will be back to usual, apart from the luxury of testing new stuff.
And of course the loss of a few customers due to their demise in high speed pile ups on the motorways etc.

Have the people in charge got any grasp at all of what its like in the real world?

We tested a three year old Vauxhall today, 150,000 on the clock. Good as new? Sadly not.

Stop the world, I want to get off.

Could have been worse - every other incoming government has gone for the whole 4-2-2 (before abandoning it because of increased road deaths).

We'll be covering this in the August issue of MOT Testing/MOT Workshop, and no doubt the trade will want to stop this if at all possible.

As we've said before, there's a stronger road safety case for Europe changing to our 3-1-1 system than us changing to 4-2-2 or even 4-1-1.

"New cars and motorbikes will not need MOTs for the first four years, rather than three"
