Despite a new lockdown coming into force in England and furlough being extended until March across the UK, MoTs certificates have not been extended a second time.
That means you can still be hit with fines of up to £2,500 if you're late to get your car, van or motorbike tested.
Worse, increased demand coupled with Covid-19 restrictions could make booking a test harder than ususal.
That's because many of the tests that were put off earlier in the year are now coming due.
Test centres have also been added to the list of premises that can remain open despite the a second lockdown being brought into force in England.
As a result, no new extension is coming.
Heritage 4x4 Ltd remains open for the repair of vehicles, prioritising key workers in order to continue supporting key workers.
Motorists worried about getting an MOT because of the coronavirus crisis, have been handed a six-month reprieve.
However, it won't come in until Monday 30 March which means vehicles due an MOT before then must still take it.

The exemption will apply to cars, motorcycles and vans, but the government warned that vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition.
Garages will remain open for essential repair work while drivers will face prosecution if they're caught driving unsafe vehicles.
