Electric Van MoT Loophole Closed
The Government has issued new guidance around electric vans requiring a MOT after Arval highlighted a ‘loophole’ in existing legislation that meant they did not have to undergo the test.
The new guidance says that from May 1 the loophole will be closed, with MOTs applying to all electric vans.
Arval said that it was something that it had originally predicted, but it didn’t expect it to happen so so quickly.
Eddie Parker, fleet commercial vehicle consultant at Arval, said: “We are very happy to see the introduction of MOTs for electric vans.”
However, he added that the points Arval had originally made still applied to those electric vans registered before May 1.
