    This has been brought up again and again and it's a completely stupid idea. No one likes having an MOT every year but considering some cars fail their MOT every year would moving it to 2 years make much sense.

    Are roads not dangerous enough with drink/drug drivers, un-insured drivers, incompetant drivers, those who don't MOT their car anyway and those who can't keep their car roadworthy.

    Here in Denmark... its first time when the car is 4 years, then after wards every 2 year.. that is only for normal cars..

    Others have one every year.

    it sounds like that is what they are saying in this RAC article ..
    quote Phillip Hammond: "If we can move from first test at four years and yearly thereafter to four years, then two and then yearly, motorists could save £100."
    ^actually, i've read that a few times and it doesn't make much sense :S

    under this plan, older cars will still be tested every year - it sounds like.
    doesn't sound all that bad - except a few 3-4yr old cars could develop deadly faults that go unnoticed by the owner. That''s why the Dft say it would result in "2 more road fatalies every year".

    Dont think you will loose out on only have it every 2 year.. it will still be the same cars failing year after year ... (just like here....)
