Tougher MOT tests from May will put diesel drivers in the firing line
A raft of strict checks will lead to more cars failing, with tougher emission measures likely to catch out diesel vehicles

The tests are being introduced to meet a new EU roadworthiness directive. Similar measures are being introduced across the EU.

Worth having a read - especially if you own a diesel car - as there are some major changes. Apparently this will apply across the EU.

New MOT tests come into force

Changes to the MOT test come into force on Sunday, which introduce new categories under which a vehicle can fail or pass.

The categories include "dangerous", "major" and "minor" which determine whether a car, van or motorcycle must be taken off the road or can be driven as long as repairs are carried out.

The MOT will also be tougher on diesel emissions.

Vehicles with a diesel particulate filter will now have to pass new tests.
