Electric vans in UK now need an MOT

Electric vans in the UK are no longer exempt from the MOT, as of September 1 2018, if they have a gross weight of 3,500kg or less or were first registered on or after March 1 2015.

These vehicles will need their first MOT on the third anniversary of when they were registered.

If a vehicle is no longer exempt and the third anniversary has already passed, it will now need a current MOT to be legally driven and taxed.
