VOSA Tightens Up MOT Mileage Rules
October 8, 2012
The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) have put a new rule in place that states that a vehicle's mileage for the current test as well as a history of mileage from the previous three tests must be recorded.
The changes to the MOT are to come into force from November 18th. The rule has been designed to give both buyers and car dealerships a more accurate picture of a car's history.
This could be very good news for young drivers looking to buy their first car - potentially stamping out fraudulent sales. In addition it could reduce the number of claims on young driver insurance policies.
The Director of the RMI National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA), Sue Robinson believes that the changes will be beneficial to both consumers and those who work in the car sales market, adding:
"The NFDA have long campaigned for rigorous regulation of clocking and this change in legislation is a positive step to wipe out rogue activity.
"Additionally, consumers will benefit from the changes as it means they will have a completely accurate account of the current condition of the used car they are purchasing."
