MOT Contingency testing (CT) codes for Bank Holiday and next weekBack


As happened last weekend, the contingency testing code for this Saturday 29 August 2015 will last all Bank Holiday weekend and will be valid until the end of Bank Holiday Monday 31 August 2015.

DVSA is also extending the temporary publication of contingency testing (CT) codes on the GOV.UK website up until Friday 4 September 2015 and they’ll continued to be published on the following link:

• MOT testing service: contingency testing –

DVSA is also going to continue emailing out codes to users of the MOT testing service at 6am each day until Friday 4 September 2015.

The advice still stands that anyone wanting to use a contingency testing code should only do so if they cannot access the MOT testing service and are unable to carry out tests.

Relaxation of contingency retro-keying rules

Due to the high number of contingency tests which have been carried out over the past couple of weeks DVSA has relaxed the rules on retro-keying results back into the service.

It’s just published guidance about this on the GOV.UK website under the following link:

DVSA will also be emailing all users of the MOT testing service with an update about this on Friday morning (28 August 2015).
