New Laws Concerning Electric Vehicles

Electric Goods Vehicles

Electric Goods Vehicles now need an MOT.

From  Saturday 1 September 2018, electric vans will no longer be exempt from the MOT if they:

  • have a gross weight not exceeding 3,500kg
  • were first registered on or after 1 March 2015

Consequently these vehicles will need their first MOT on the third anniversary of when they were registered.

Furthermore if your vehicle is no longer exempt and the third anniversary has already passed. It will need a current MOT to be legally driven and taxed.

Finally, if you are driving an electric light commercial vehicle that is over 3 years old that requires an MOT. Call Autoexperts in Medway today and book your vehicle in.
