Do cars need an MoT test every year?

Reducing the frequency of MoT tests for cars could lead to more than 250 additional deaths a year, road safety campaigners have warned.

The government is considering changes to the test in the light of advances in vehicle technology.

At present vehicles must undergo their first MoT once they have been on the road for three years and then be retested annually.
