The Weekly Roundup

The new DVSA MOT entry system has proved problematic despite a limited rollout to around 20% of testing stations.

With a national rollout still scheduled for September, a number of garages have already started using the cloud-based system for test entries. However, a series of issues have meant that these garages have been unable to conduct MOTs, or have needed to issue paper certificates and delay logging the results online. With over 70,000 MOTs a day carried out in the UK and the system not yet fully rolled out, some are now suggesting the nationwide launch be pushed back.
