The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) will increas the fee garages must pay for each MoT slot fee from £2 to £2.05 on April 6.
The increase in fee has risen following VOSA’s announcement that the maximum fee applicable for testing private motor vehicles will also increase from £54 to £54.85.
Many garages will charge less than the maximum fee in order to remain competitive.
The £2.05 fee garages pay goes to the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) to fund the costs of overseeing the scheme. The rest of the fee, up to £54.85, is retained by the garage doing the test.
