Commenting on today’s vote by MEPs on proposals to introduce a regular MOT test for light trailers and agricultural tractors, John Allan, National Chairman, Federation of Small Businesses, said:

“Having campaigned on this issue for over a year, we welcome today’s vote by MEPs to exempt the lightest trailers and agricultural tractors from a new testing regime. However, we believe all trailers under 3,500kg should be exempt and will continue working with MEPs and Ministers to make a push for this.”
