My MOT ran out last September.
It was my understanding that, with Covid, BoJo had given us 6 months grace.
Just tried to re-tax it......no joy.
Phoned the garage and fortunately they have re-opened so its booked in for MOT.
The garage thinks I am right.
Anyone here know for certain?

Garage is wrong.

Grace extension was only for certificates expiring between end of March and end of July 2020. If yours was after that it was book before expiry, as usual.

TBH @Dave7 I wouldn't take any reply on here as gospel anyway. For something so easy to check I would simply head over to the DVLA or .gov website and find the definitive answer for myself :okay:
Appreciate all most of the comments though i could live without the snide ones.
Seems like I have got away with one there ^_^.
Fortunately MOT is booked for tomorrow so I have dodged a bullet.

Apart from the public admission on the internet there is no trace of your villainous offending :laugh:

I suppose MOTs are pretty essential but it's weird that you can have people you don't know inside your car handling the seatbelts, pressing buttons and switches, etc. but you can't sit in a hairdressers wearing a mask and not touching anything for half an hour........can you tell I need my hair cut? :laugh:
Other than somebody inches away from you breathing the same air for half an hour
