Yorkshire motorists admit driving without an MOT
10:00am Saturday 24th August 2013 in News
More than a quarter of Yorkshire drivers have admitted to knowingly driving their cars without a valid MOT for as long as six months.
A new Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders survey carried out in conjunction with Bradford-based dealer JCT600, shows that nationally a third of motorists have driven a car knowing it has no valid MOT, in spite of this being an offence. The SMMT surveyed 1,000 UK motorists and found that, of those that have driven a car without a valid MOT, 67 per cent admitted driving for up to a week before the retest, 24 per cent for up to a month, seven per cent for up to six months and two per cent for longer.The research was carried out in partnership with car manufacturers and dealer networks , JCT600, as part of the industry's 'Minute Or Two' initiative.
