MOT test changes – how will they affect you?

What Car? Logo By whatcar.com of What Car? | Slide 1 of 16: Stricter emissions checks for diesel cars, along with new pass and fail categories, are being introduced. The changes are being brought in to adhere to a European Union directive known as the EU Roadworthiness Package. Tighter scrutiny of diesel cars' exhaust emissions and their diesel particulate filters could cause more diesel vehicles to fail their MOT tests and land owners with costly repair bills. Other changes include the renaming of the pass and fail categories to make them easier to understand.
