Six million British drivers are running around in cars with expired MoTs, according to an insurance company – which also means their insurance policies will be invalidated.
The same can apply to motorists who keep driving on bald tyres to save money or because they have just simply forgotten ever to check them.
But if you are involved in an accident and your tyres were illegal then the insurance company may refuse to pay out against any claims you make.
Leading motoring correspondent Quentin Willson, drew attention to the “MoT black hole” which has been highlighted by Zurich Connect in his Sunday Mirror column.
He makes the point that with no national reminder system in place it is the vehicle owners responsibility to get their car tested for its annual MoT.
The same applies with tyres. It’s up to you make sure they are safe and legal.
And if you are worried about incurring costs because you have to buy new ones, then follow Quentin’s previous advice to come to etyres.
