Motorists could be putting themselves at risk in their approved used cars by failing to book an MOT, new research has found.

Just a third of drivers questioned by Kwik Fit said they booked an MOT well in advance, leaving many at risk of being caught out when it expires.

It is estimated that 1.1 million of the country's motorists are not planning on getting their cars' MOTs completed on the due date in a bid to cut costs.

David White, customer services director at Kwik Fit, said: "If car owners are used to their car regularly passing the MOT with no problems, they may view an MOT simply as a piece of paper they need in order to get their car taxed."

He stressed that an MOT is an opportunity for any defects to be located before a car becomes unsafe and therefore has to be taken off the road.ADNFCR-2576-ID-800724959-ADNFCR
