The Wider Implications of the 2018 MOT Changes

Posted by Becca Knight on February 02, 2018

Some very interesting changes to MOT testing have been announced and we’ll give you a clue: It’s not changing to less frequent testing. Say goodbye to advisories and hello to dangerous, major, and minor fails. What is being tested has also changed with focus on the diesel filters of the emissions system.

It is easy to forget that the soot and ash trapped inside a diesel particulate filter is a highly toxic cocktail of ‘matter’ that has been purposefully prevented from being jettisoned into the atmosphere along with the exhaust gas from diesel engines. If it serious enough to be a legal requirement for vehicle manufacturers to ensure that the public are protected from breathing in particulate matter (PM) , then it follows that it is equally important to do the same for workshop staff when they are emptying out a DPF.
