The way an MOT Test works is set to change on Sunday 20 May 2018.
Defects discovered in the MOT will be categorised as dangerous, major or minor. A dangerous or major fault will result in a fail. Advisories will still be given.
The changes will also mean stricter rules for cars with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) - resulting in a major fault if the MOT tester finds smoke from the exhaust or if there is evidence the DPF has been tampered with.
New items will be tested in the MOT, such as brake pad warning lights, reversing lights on certain vehicles, headlight washers on certain vehicles and obviously underinflated tyres.
