April MOT bookings 160% up year-on-year

Published:  12 May, 2021

MOT bookings were up 160% in April compared with 2020 via BookMyGarage.com Meanwhile, overall bookings via the site, covering MOTs as well as servicing and repairs were up 130%.

Karen Rotberg, Co-Founder of BookMyGarage.com, commented “April was a real concern for garages, with four-in-five MOTs no longer due to take place as a result of the extension. With 70% of our customers booking their service at the same time as their MOT, this also caused a big drop in accompanying service and repair work.

A Freedom of Information (FOI) request to the DVSA by BookMyGarage.com revealed that MOT test numbers fell by 79% in April 2020 and 61% in May 2020.

Karen added: “While we’re still on the road to recovery, April was a big improvement, and brings a more positive outlook for May and June when MOT test numbers were also notably impacted.”

BookMyGarage.com has also seen its SecretService offering gain significant momentum. SecretService enables franchised dealers to attract additional work for vehicles aged four years and older. Over a fifth of all BookMyGarage.com bookings in April being made through SecretService, compared to 2.7% in April 2020.
